My name is Jordan, I'm a Trilingual student, Studying Political and Governance Studies at the College of Europe, Bruges. I am particularly interested in the EU's Digital, Energy, Health, Research and Transport policies. I speak English, French and German.

In September, I began studying Poltiical & Governance Studies, at the College of Europe in Bruges. I intend to specialise in EU Digital Law and Energy Policy as well as EU Parliamentary and Council Procedure.
The Research Executive Agency is a body of the European Commission responsible for implementing research policy. During my Internship, I communicated with Stakeholders through the COVID-19 crisis, prepared a new brochure for the agency, wrote a new mission statement for the agency, and worked with the social media team to prepare more engaging content and increase the visibilty of the agency.
I was elected President in October 2019. My primary successes were the deepening of our partnership with the Seine-Saint-Denis department, our educational actions despite the COVID crisis, our conferences with EU officials, including Commissioner Sinkevičius, and our millitant actions during the local elections, encouraging candidates to commit to pro-european policy in the form of the Label Ville Européenne.
As Secretary General of the Young Europeans - Paris (Jeunes Européens - Étudiants de Paris), I oversaw the administration of the association, legal implementation of the associations statutes and organisation of meetings of the administrative council and general assemblies. I also actively partook in the work of the association in teaching young people in middle and high school about European Democracy and Fundamental Rights, as well as many other millitant actions.
Eurosorbonne is the Student Association of European Studies at the Sorbonne-Nouvelle. In their Communication team I helped organise and publicise a number of events, including conferences with EU officials and Euractiv, as well as social events.

During my time there I assisted the Plant optimisation team in their work in 3 ways : Translating correspondance between plants from French to German and vice verca, Organising tours of the plant for partners and employees from other plants, and developing IT systems to facilitate plant optimisation.
Having taken a particular interest in international relations, public policy and the european union throughout my scholarity, I decided to undertake a degree in European and International Studies, specialising in Franco-German relations. The degree consisted of 2 years at the Université Blaise Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand, France and 1 year at the Universität Regensburg, Germany, studying themes such as the History of the EU, European Policy and Law.
In 2011, I Integrated Paul-Constans, and studied Sustainable Development and I.T. Throughout my time here, I strengthened my French Skills, and excelled in I.T, Architecture, Energy and German. In my final year, I served as student representative on the board of administrators, as well as the boards of health and discipline.
I arrived in France in April 2008. Prior to arrival I spoke no French. I reached fluency in French in my final year at middle school, and graduated with honours.
Having finished primary school in the UK, I spent two years at the award winning Bishop Stopford School.
