Journalists

The journalists are a fun bunch of people who will work very hard during the session to make a newspaper with information about what's going on at the session and in the world beyond. These newspapers will be a very nice memory for you to keep when you go home after the session. So treat the "journos" as they are called, with lots of love and lots of honour!

  I'm currently studying Law at the Catholic University of Leuven (KUL). I'd like to specialise in Refugee and Human Rights after I finish my bachelor. Apart from that I'm just a big music and movie geek.

What does this session mean to you?

Ensuring a High quality paper for a Session in the High North which will hopefully result in High Temperature in the hearts of the readers. (In case you were wondering: no the paper will not be as cheesy as the sentence before this one. I promise.)

At the ripe age of 22, I'm currently studying economics at the University of Lausanne in Swizerland. Like the stereotypes say, I'm a big sports fan and have a deep interest in computers (anything electronic for that matter!).

 

What does this session mean to you?

The session will be "an opportunity to create the most unforgettable newspaper in recent times, or like the Americans say: the best thing since sliced bread!"

  I am currently doing my final year at Robert College in Istanbul, and waiting to see what else life has in store for me. I am a huge fan of the BrickBreaker and I totally rule at it. I am also quite passionate about football, good food, good music and power naps.

What does this session mean to you?

Spending ten days in possibly the northernmost pressroom in the world, and reliving the great atmosphere of an International Session through the eyes of Adobe InDesign.

Activities outside EYP:

I’m a 20 year old student in economics and finance. I’m French but currently doing an Erasmus year in Milan, Italy. I spend most of my free time travelling around the world and I will move to Peru next year. I enjoy playing the piano and practicing mountain sports mainly.

What does this session mean to you?

I just hope everyone will enjoy it to the maximum! I know I will!



  Buser Say (TR)

  Video Editor

 

Activities outside EYP:

Me? I am Buser but people call me Boose. I am 19, living in Istanbul, Turkey. It is my senior year at Robert College and just got admitted to University of Toronto for the Industrial Engineering programme.

I am literally a sports freak; used to play soccer but now I am more into boxing. Cool stuff. Appreciate Depeche Mode, Interpol and She Wants Revenge. Read Chuck Palahniuk, immensely.

What does this session mean to you?

High North? In the country where I come from, the weather is +20 degrees celcius! God save the Mediterraneans from frostbites and polar bears.



  James Benge (UK)

  Journalist

 

  Activities outside EYP:

I’m currently in my first year studying for a degree in History at Oxford University. Outside of EYP I write about music, listen to music and insult people for their taste in music. I also watch hideous amounts of Youtube and sometimes play sports, but nothing too exerting.

What does this session mean to you?

Like every EYP session this is an opportunity for me to learn from the varied ideas of Europe’s young people and to experience the intensity of an international session.



  Petya Koleva (BG)

  Journalist


Activities outside EYP:

I am currently in my first year reading Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Durham University. When I am not buried in books or swimming for the university, I enjoy weekend escapes to nearby and distant lands. Home is and always will be Sofia, Bulgaria and I spend most of my time there freeride skiing and going to gigs of Oasis cover bands. 

What does this session mean to you?

This session will be an amazing opportunity to discover the High North alongside the most bright, awesome and beautiful people in Europe. And it's also the closest I will ever be to meeting a polar bear!



  Sophie Scannell (IE)

  Journalist

 

 Activities outside EYP:

 I'm a real outdoors person, and I love skiiing and sailing, whether it's competing for my country, or spending time just relaxing with my parents during the summer. Aside from that I spend a lot of time debating for the Philosophical Society at University College Cork, where I'm currently studying Maths and Physics. I'm a self-confessed nerd and neurotic, and love shoes, chocolate, and neat folding.

 

What does this session mean to you?

Tromso is a chance for me to visit an amazing place I've never been to before, to meet old friends, and to make new ones. It's a opportunity to see a whole new generation of EYPers start their relationship with the organisation I've fallen in love with, and see how they deal with some very real problems for Europe, and for the world.

 

  Ylva Konsberg (SE)

  Journalist

 

Activities outside EYP:

I’m a 19-year old coffee-drinking yogoholic who loves long-distance running, the great outdoors and any kind of adventure that can make my adrenaline pump. Indulging in literature, art and café-hopping are other ways in which I like to spend my time. I take a massive interest in mathematics and am headed towards Uni, where I intend to study medicine. At the moment I’m about to finish up my last year of the Swedish gymnasium.

 

What does this session mean to you?

Tromsö and the EYP – what a combination! Dramatic scenery and great debates, sledding and lovely people, ice-bergs and high spirits – all very good reasons for being very, very excited about this upcoming session.

 

 

 Konrad Staeger (CH)

 Journalist

 Activities outside EYP:
 
 I am currently enjoying my last months of high school life in Switzerland before finally graduating  this summer. When not involved with EYP, I enjoy playing theatre and consuming all the good food, music and literature there is.
 
What does this session mean to you?
 

Being part of the northernmost press team is a great honour and I am convinced that we will succeed in making the session a truly memorable one for all participants. Moreover, this session is a unique opportunity to explore the 'Paris of the North' together with brilliant people from all over Europe!

 

  George Barnęs (UK)

  Journalist

 

Activities outside EYP:

I am currently on my gap year and have just finished a 7 month internship at a professional services firm. After Tromso I will be travelling to Africa and Costa Rica, and in October I will be going to study Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at Oxford University. I love playing music, and have a particular thrill for weird English sports that no one has ever heard of! Time is running out for our climate, and the obvious and undeniable consequences of mankind’s activity must be addressed.

 

What does this session mean to you?

Being in Tromso (where these consequences are manifesting) will be a great opportunity to help kick-start some real change...

 

  Hanna Ollinen (FI)

  Journalist

 

Activities outside EYP:

I'm done with my final exams this spring and starting uni next fall. I like cooking, sailing and skiing. I'm also very fond of ice-cream, but I'm not addicted to it anymore.

What does this session mean to you?

A new experience in EYP and getting to know the part of Scandinavia I'm not familiar with yet. It's amazing to see so many people traveling so far for for EYP.
Kjempebra Norge!



  Jolien Van Daele (BE)

  Journalist

 Activities outside EYP:

I spend most of my time researching the external relations of the EU at the University of Ghent and irritating my friends with unscrupulous questions. Besides that I love performing some dance moves in public places and some singing in the shower. Being heavily influenced by The Lonely Island, I also do believe my boombox can change your world.

 

What does this session mean to you?

It will be an honor to witness the wittiness of all participants and to share a lot of amusing and more serious moments with them. In addition Tromsø and its exceptionality will without any doubt add up to a unique atmosphere and make us even more alert for the importance of our environment.

 

  Kyle Meyr (NO)

  Journalist

 

Activities outside EYP:

As you may have already noticed, my name is Kyle Meyr and I am the journalist for ITRE III and IMCO. I am the Norwegian of Tromsø's pressroom (which is only half a lie considering I am 50% American) and have been involved in a number of the EYP's previous national and international sessions. However, this will be my second time as a journalist internationally and considering I have twice as many committees to attend to as last time, this will be twice as great of an experience. I am an avid skier and I currently attent the American College of Norway (yeah, I've never heard of it either) in the south of Norway.

What does this session mean to you?

I look forward to this coming session in Tromsø and considering how much money we've spent to get there, I will be working my hardest to make it our most memorable session ever! I can't wait to meet all of you, but until then good luck preparing yourselves!



  Merete Holmberg (FI)

  Journalist

 

 

Activities outside EYP:

I'm currently finishing my final exams and after that I'll be able to watch 'How I met your mother' all day every day. I love travelling, eating, chilling and going to bodycombat.  

What does this session mean to you?

A jolly good time and meeting new cool people. I'll also get the opportunity to get in touch with my Norwegian roots... See you soon!



  Aude Durand (FR)

  Journalist

 

Activities outside EYP:

I’m currently studying physics, chemistry and math in order to reach economy and politics later on through some weird twist in the French studies’ system. Among distractions, I love sports – it’s a family trait. I might not be very good, but I’ll play any sports, any time.

What does this session mean to you?

This session is a unique occasion to discover the high North while meeting wonderful people from all over Europe and discussing vital topics. This looks very reasonable; the truth is, who could resist the opportunity to throw snowballs at hundreds of delegates grouped together as the easiest of targets? (Picture the wicked smile across my face!)

 

  Matthew David Pollock (UK)

  Journalist

 

  Activities outside EYP:

I'm in my first year studying Law at the University of Glasgow. When I'm not procrastinating or shuffling piles of statute around under the vague pretense of studying, I enjoy swimming and playing my many guitars. I'm also a fearsome parliamentary debater; my desire to repeatedly tell people they're wrong in an officious manner helps me with this. Travelling, reading, and good company are all things I take great pleasure from.

What does this session mean to you?

An opportunity to spend time with some seriously clever and charming people, discover Norway at its most picturesque, and ultimately, experience the magic of EYP within a completely new and exciting environment!

 

  Didrik Helsing (SE)

Activities outside EYP:

Currently I’m studying Environmental Studies at the University of Karlstad in Sweden! Its alright but my PASSION is music! I love House and Metal (weird combo) and I just LOVE living life! Sailing is also a big part off my life! But anyways if people would call me one thing, it would be CRAZY! No Shame is my life motto ;)

What does this session mean to you?

It’s been a while since my last session and I am so looking forward to just having a good time and meeting both new and old friends. I hope that everyone is excited… because I AM!!!!!!

 

 Liva Kreislere (LV)

This summer I will hopefully graduate secondary school in Riga and start my studies of Architecture in London. I am currently spending a lot of time in studio - preparing my portfolio. When not in school or studio - I'm on the tennis court.

What does this session mean to you?

April'10 looks stunning in my scheduler. There so little time for school and so much for having the time of my life.
