Hi everyone! My name is Maria and I'm a first-year Political Science student. You can find my articles (not surprisingly) in the politics section. I love reading, exploring new places and obviously, writing. "I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means”- those words from my all-time favourite writer Joan Didion perfectly explain why I have decided to gain experience in writing. I am super excited to have joined YOUvA and I hope you will enjoy reading our pieces!
My name is Isaac and I'm a first-year Communication Science student. I was raised in a tiny town in the middle of the mountains for my whole life , so living in Amsterdam is very exciting! In the future I would like to be a sports reporter. I'm very excited to collaborate and learn from fellow students in the YOUvA team. I'm passionate about all sports, but mostly watch tennis and football. Life is uncertain, but the only thing I know for sure is that Barça is the best team in the world. Força Barça!
Hello there! I’m Mara, a first-year Literary and Cultural Analysis student, and first-time writer. You can find my articles in the Arts section sharing my entirely unbiased and completely objective opinions. I’m excited to have an extra excuse to go to any and all on-campus and off-campus shows, art installations, exhibitions, or whatever else might be interesting to look at from an artistic perspective. Like most of the staff here at YOUvA, I have many opinions I’m always ready to share and debate at a moment’s notice, so if you agree or disagree with anything I write I’m always up to have a coffee -or a beer- and a chat.
