Gabby Rialland -4 posts
This French globe-trotter, with a disputable sense of humour, has found a true home in The Netherlands. After 4 years in Groningen, she indefinitely traded her French Baguette for a Broodje-kroket and moved to Amsterdam to pursue a Master in Communication Science. Gabby in one word: upbeat; as much in her personality as when she is behind the DJ decks. Some say it may be related to her caffeine addiction.

She has also been acting for the past 5 and a half years. If asked about future plans and career aspirations, Gilda replies by saying that she wants to become a journalist, yet trying to incorporate all her interests into a single, unique life project.

As you can tell from this paragraph, she's still working on that particular skill.
Henrike Freytag -3 posts
Gratefully writing a monthly column, Henrike's mission is to connect the best of both worlds from Communication Sciences to Cultural Studies. In 20 years, she sees herself either as a Journalist or a Midwife. Henrike is 21 years old and from Germany. Why she decided to study in the Netherlands is a question, she hasn't even answered yet. It's cool though. In the meantime and for distraction, she does Karate and steals tea at Singel Library.
