Hi! I'm Donna, and I'm 19 years old. I study Political Science at the VU. I'm from a small town in the Netherlands. I find myself drawn to topics such as. Human Rights and EU politics. Politeia serves as a great platform to express my thoughts about current issues.

Hey, I’m Alex and I’m a 19 year old political science student at the VU. I’m originally from the UK but I was born and raised in Belgium. My main interests within the field of politics are social issues and international relations. An unrealistic goal of mine is to one day manage to fully understand and explain Belgian politics.

I’m Orion Salazar, I’m 20 years old and a 2nd year Global Politics Political Science student. My job experience includes interning for MN State Representative Kaohly Her and working as a research assistant at Vital Images. I lived in France and the US, and enjoy writing articles on a wide variety of topics. Long-term aspirations of mine include becoming a policy analyst, or working for a think-tank.
I’m a second year student in the Political Science: Global Politics track. I’m 22 years old, from Germany. My political background: worked for one year in Athens in a refugee shelter, was a member of different activist groups concerning human rights and climate change, was an election campaigner for the Green Party of Germany. Topics of interest: Human Rights, (in)equality, migration, discrimination, IR.
I am studying Political Science, I am 20 years old and I come from Poland. I often have too many thoughts at once, so writing allows me to divide them between me and the paper. Moreover, it can be easily combined with my interests and done from any place on the globe (I am still dreaming of this round-the-world trip).
Hi! I am 19 from Germany, studying Political Science: Global Politics in my second year. I have lived in 4 countries before moving here to the netherlands. That is why I find it important to share news from ‘outside’ of the bubble we tend to live in. I very much enjoy looking at history and its future implications, and tend to include such a theme in my articles.
I am 19 and a 2nd year Political Science: Global Politics student. I’m originally Dutch-Filipino, but have lived in six countries by the time I was 18 years old (Singapore, Hong Kong, Poland, Indonesia, the Philippines and the Netherlands). Stemming from a rather interesting international background (and meeting many people), I find it important that all sides of a discussion are listened to and understood.
I am studying Political Science, Global Politics. I am a second year student, and 21 years old. I come from the Netherlands, and study both in Amsterdam and Maastricht. Right now I am part of United Netherlands, a delegation focusing on the United Nations and international politics. Writing helps me with my thoughts and the processing of it. And I would like to show you my experience within United Netherlands!
