President - Nicola Brunn

Hi everybody!

Warm welcome to Switzerland! I’m Nicola - President of ESN because I love bringing people together, introducing them to our home-country and – most important of all - getting to know people from different countries and cultures. Myself, I’m addicted to sports (climbing, biking, skiing, running) and love the outdoors - especially the mountains (I know… cliché swiss guy :D). Also, I’m interested in basically everything and I love to explore and learn new things. That’s why I - for example - have a basic jumping-licence for skydiving or read books about the ideology of old shaolin :D. Last but not least I love to help other people and I’m giving my best to make this world a bit of a better place. Looking forward to meeting you guys and who knows - maybe we’re soon gonna be exploring swiss outdoors together!

Treasurer / Head of Events - Célestine Schachenmann

Hello, my name is Célestine. I am the treasurer and event manager of ESN Winterthur. I’m 26 (I know I may look younger #Babyface), and I’m Swiss. I've been in contact with exchange students from day one of my studies because of some of my flatmates being exchange students. After a while I got interested in organising events for them myself and got into ESN, where I have been for 3 years now. When I’m not doing anything ESN related I like baking, reading, traveling, and going to the cinema. Two years ago I was on exchange in Paris myself. I speak Swissgerman, German, French, Dutch and English fluently.
