Nikol has been living and studying in Vienna, Austria, and now, after some time in Bali, she decided to become our new Community Manager in Prague and will spend the next months organizing fun events!
Who am I and why an internship at SRF?
Hi guys, my name is Nikol, I’m 21 years old and I come from Teplice, a small town in the north-west of Czech.
Currently, I’m studying a Bachelor’s degree program in Corporate Communication at the FHWien der WKW in Vienna.
So why SRF? Well, as part of my studies, I had to find an internship for my 5th semester. After spending 5 months in Asia, I decided to move to the capital of my home country (for the first time actually) and find an internship in Prague. I tried my luck and applied for this position through LinkedIn. Honestly, I had no idea what SRF was and what the position was about until I received an invitation for an interview. I was amazed by the approach and mindset of the people at SRF and also, the job description of a Community Manager just sounded so fun!
Why am I a suitable candidate to be a Community Manager?
Creative, ambitious, dynamic, enjoy learning new things and seeking new concepts. These are the traits that I assume will make me a great community manager. Besides that, I got the chance to travel a lot in the past few years, therefore I can convey my tips and tricks to other students and, as a good Community Manager, make their Erasmus experience unforgettable!
I’m the type of person who hates stereotypes and loves discovering new places, gaining new experiences and meeting new people. After almost 2 years in Vienna, I decided to do my semester abroad in Bali. Recently, I moved to Prague there. After that, I’ll finish my degree, again in Vienna.
My passions and travels
My passion is fashion. Sounds cliché, but true for me. I’ve always been interested in every spectrum of fashion and my goal is to work in this industry in the future. Currently, I’m helping out a local fashion brand and I’m working on my own fashion project as well. Furthermore, I love dancing. I started dancing when I was around 11 years old. Since then I’ve tried multiple dance styles, but my favorites are hip hop, house, and dancehall.
As I already mentioned, my favorite trip I’ve made is definitely Bali! Since I had the opportunity to spend 5 months there, I got to explore every part of Bali. Nature is incredible, not only do you get to see beautiful beaches, but also the proper jungle with loads of waterfalls and rice fields. This experience taught me so much when it comes to self-growth and broadening horizons. I’ve met some of my closest friends and lived in a totally different culture. No doubt I consider it one of my greatest and craziest experiences in life!
My dream destination is currently Tokyo and New York. Since I’ve already spent enough time on the beach, I’m keen to discover the true big city life!
