Boğaç Delikurtoğlu

My name is Boğaç and I’m twenty-three years old from Istanbul, Turkey. Currently studying International Journalism at HvA in Amsterdam. The reason I wanted to study journalism is because I really like helping people sharing their story with the world. I'm also doing musical theater back in Turkey. Playing drums, photography and video games are also part of my hobbies. I hope that one day I can become a music journalist. My fav song: Chicago by Steven Sufjans.

Hi, my name is Chris. I’m 23 years old and I'm from Rotterdam, the most beautiful city in the world. I chose to follow the minor International Journalism to improve my writing skills and to reduce the amount of Dutch-stonekole in my English. When I'm not working my ass off on assignments for the minor, I work as a football reporter for Algemeen Dagblad. I like going to the gym, watching Feyenoord with my friends in De Kuip and eating (but not making) pancakes. My favorite song of all time is Lost in Yesterday, by Tame Impala.

Hello I’m Daniël Reusink, 23 years old. I was born in Leeuwarden but grew up in Almere with my parents and an older sister. The reason I choose for the minor International Journalism is because I’m always curious, and want to know what’s happening in the world. I hope to learn a lot about writing, filming, recording and editing. I’m looking forward to meeting many new and interesting people during this minor. Favorite song: Mac Miller – Self care

I’m Diana and I’m from Romania, but I moved to the UK to study two years ago. Starting my adult life in Oxford is such a big change from growing up in Bucharest, and moving to Amsterdam for half a year is even more of a cultural shift. I love in-depth pieces about certain topics, especially in different formats - documentaries or interviews. I'm also the managing co-editor of a newly-launched student magazine @hybridmagazineuk. Hmm.. and my favorite song? It changes monthly, but Speed of Sound by Coldplay will always have a special place in my heart.

I am Floor and I originally come from the north of the Netherlands. I moved to Amsterdam when I was seventeen, for my work as a flight attendant and later to study again. I am doing this minor because I have always been interested in journalism. I like the fact that it gives me a view from different angles on important world topics. My favorite song is The weekend Funk Wav Remix by SZA, Calvin Harris & Funk Wav.

Friederike Kunz

Hi there, I am Frida! Growing up close to the economical center of Germany, Frankfurt, I’ve always loved the busy life. And what’s more busy than news?! Plus journalism can be so much besides news, which is great fun as well. Because if you look for it, there is a story to be told everywhere. I study journalism to pave my way into hosting a talkshow one day, I really want to give people a voice and the audience the best info - but first comes the work behind the scenes. That’s why I love the hands-on approach of the Minor at the HvA! Now for my favorite song I’d go for Ich liebe das Leben by Vicky Leandros. Super cheesy, but it always makes me sing and dance along!

Hi! My name is Chloe Schlette and I’m a fourth-year Creative Business student at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. I was born and raised in Purmerend, but I recently moved to Delft to build up a life there. Next to the classes I follow, I run my own social media bureau. I love writing and photography. During this minor I hope I learn more about this so I can use this experience in the future.

Isabella Balanchi

Hi! I’ve wanted to be a journalist since I was a kid. Back then, it was mostly because I liked to write stories. Later in life, it became a drive to make a difference, fight injustice and tell stories from the world, which otherwise might not be told. I’m from Copenhagen, but normally study journalism in Aarhus, Denmark. I chose the International Journalism minor, because I want to expand my horizon and practice working internationally. My favorite song at the moment is ‘Stor mand’ by Tobias Rahim and Andreas Odbjerg, because it puts me in a summer mood and it’s a love song to Aarhus, which makes me feel closer to home while being abroad.

Hi! My name is Janina, I’m from Stuttgart, Germany, where I study journalism. Writing and reading is my passion, I have done that ever since. I chose the Minor “International Journalism” because I want to use my privilege to give people who don’t have the chance a voice. I want to write about things that matter, that can change our world, our way of thinking. Words make a difference, and here at the Hva I want to improve my skills with them. My favorite song for the last year has been “Mood Ring” by Lorde. I just absolutely love her, and her new album “Solar Power” gave me back all the energy I’ve lost during the pandemic.

Hellou! My name is Julia Steiner, and I am an exchange student from Vienna, Austria. I study Journalism and Media Management back home, and now I am doing a minor in International Journalism at the HvA. I am interested in everything that has to do with video. It is a great medium to bring the topic closer to the viewer. When it comes to topics, I am interested in current news and lifestyle. In my free time I love to read, draw and knit. My favourite song is called Dark River by Lydia Luce.e.

Meya Tshisanda

My name is Meya Tshisanda and I’m from Netherlands. In my free time I like to sing, write songs and to hang out with my friends and family. I am currently studying Creative Business at the HVA and for my minor I chose to study International Journalism. The reason of my choice is because I’ve always felt a passion for writing and especially in writing stories that bring out the human side in people and give a voice to the people and situations that must be heard.  As a singer I’m unable to tell you what my favorite song is because it changes every week and when I’m done with singing it a 100th times I will switch to a new favorite song.

 

Moa Aulanko

Moa Aulanko

My name is Moa, I'm from Finland and I study journalism and communications in swedish at the University of Helsinki. I chose the minor International Journalism for my exchange because I wanted to see how journalism-studies looks in another country. I also thought it would be a good add to my studies to have an international angle. What I like most in journalism is that you can be creative in so many ways and at the same time do something important. For me radio is the most interesting genre to create content to. My favorite song right now is Moth To A Flame by Swedish House Mafia and the Weeknd.

 

Natascha de Vries

Natascha de Vries

My name is Natascha de Vries, I’m from the Netherlands and I joined the ‘International journalism’ minor to gain experience on journalism involving people and stories worldwide. What I like most about journalism is documentaries. There’s time to get to know the main character, to go in-depth and to understand someone. Documentaries help me stay open minded and ‘get out of my bubble’. My favourite song at the moment is Bad Friday by Everything Everything.

 

Nina de Groot

Nina de Groot

My name is Nina, and I am 20 years old. I am from Hoorn, a little historical city in North-Holland. I am following this minor because I always liked to write. Doing this in a journalistic style is very new to me, but it looked interesting and exciting. I wanted to focus on improving my English, but I also wanted to learn how to edit audio for podcasts or edit videos. The thing about journalism that I like is that you can keep up with current events which are either happening internationally, nationally, and even locally. My favorite song at the moment is what is life? By NIve.

 

Renée Raadsheer

Renée Raadsheer

Hi! I’m Renée, a second-year international communication management student from the Hague. For the time being, my goal is to pursue a future job in the PR/MR industry rather than journalism. But I applied for this minor because of the skillset that a journalist requires, and I believe that I can grow and benefit from it. For me, journalism is about giving a voice to those who can't, and having that ability is important, especially in times like these. I’m not the right person to ask for a favorite song, I just can’t make decisions but if I had to choose, I'd go with Believe by Cher or September by Earth, Wind & Fire.

Romy Voswijk

Shalom! My name is Romy and I’m a 22-year-old queer Jewish student from the Netherlands. I’m currently doing the minor International Journalism at Hogeschool van Amsterdam. My grandfather was a journalist, I remember listening to all the fascinating stories about the different people he encountered in his work. He inspired me to pursue my career in journalism. I’m always curious about what is happening around the globe and I would love to use my writing to give minorities a voice. My favourite song at the moment is What Once Was by Her’s.

Siri Malmborg

Siri Malmborg

I’m Siri, a journalism student from Vienna, Austria, doing my Erasmus semester here at HvA. I was born and raised in the Austrian Alps by a Swedish and a Danish parent, went to an artistic high school and lived in Latin America for one year. I’ve worked within childcare, circus pedagogy and PR. At the young multimedia magazine Amrand.at, I’m an editor and head of copy-editing. Furthermore, I do media monitoring for a classical music festival. I like going to new places to find out how they feel, what stories its inhabitants tell and which bigger picture they are part of. While I get enthusiastic about almost everything, sociopolitical topics are what I care about the most. I also care and worry about media literacy, news production and consumption, and the future of journalism. Favorite song: "8 (circle)" by Bon Iver

Hi! My name is Sophie van den Berg and I am 21 years old. Currently I am studying the minor International Journalism. For the last four years, I really became interested in being a journalist. I personally think the world is messed up right now. But there is also a bright side. I want to show people both sides through good stories. Oh, and btw: My favorite song at the moment is ‘Lost’ by Frank Ocean.
