At 22 years old, Madalina speaks fluently French and English, has elementary knowledge in Spanish and learns Chinese and Koreans at the same time.
As a student, she is quite known among her mates for her involvement on campus, either through promotional activities of the Pole Leonard de Vinci, or by participating in the associative life on campus. After being part of several student organizations, such as the DeVInci FabLab and LeoFly, Madalina is the President of the student association ESN DeVinci (Erasmus Student Network) Paris La Defense.
On this very day, 30 years ago, the Erasmus Student Network was born. A student initiative based on the vision of "enrichment of society through international students", that turned into the largest student association in Europe and one of the key organizations advocating for mobility in higher education. What better way to celebrate than with the premiere of the AGM Thessaloniki aftermovie?! Happy birthday ESN! We might be turning 30, but we are as energetic, ambitious, and excited to make a change, as ever.Stay hungry. Stay foolish.#ESN30 #ESNadulting #AGMthessalonikiPS.

“Let’s say, I fell in love with people and the French mentality and I didn’t wanted to go back in Romania. I may continue my education here, at ESILV, with the completion of a doctoral thesis, but I’m not sure yet. I’m still waiting for the acceptance letter from KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology)” (Madalina Nicolae, Class of 2021)
