I met JEF at high school, in Florence: somebody showed me how to unite Europe. So, at university, I chose European studies and I joined the JEF local group. The seminars in Ventotene and other activities such as the European Youth Convention or those at the European University Institute multiplied my enthusiasm. Let's meet new people now, let's be that somebody that tells how Europe does change your life!
After being active at different levels of the organisation during some years, Jessica has now made the big jump into the European Bureau for 2 years which promise to be very intense in European projects, debates and hopefully achievements... She just hopes that she will have enough time to continue practicing her second passion in life: cycling !
My name is Toni, I'm 22, born in Italy, bred in Scotland and I'm one of the two Vice Presidents of this great organisation of fantastic, young, motivated and passionate Europeans! JEF unites people of all backrounds and cultures, brought together by the same convictions: peace, unity, freedom and democracy. JEF is truly unique and I am proud to represent it!
I am Sofia, a law student living in Athens, Greece. Currently, I am a member of the Executive Bureau of JEF Europe. JEF is a serious European political youth organization. Join us and let's shape together our vision of Europe!
I am currently studying aeronautical engineering in Paris. I discovered JEF in 1999 and since then I have been active at the local level in Paris and also in the board of JEF France. Now I am an EB member and my goal is to develop JEF in the following two years enhancing our efficiency and using as much as possible our diversity.
Being a part of the EB means to me not only the duty to provide high-quality services to the JEF community in the various member sections by delivering financial transparency and stability as well as political integrity and accountability, but also to help provide the European youth with a platform to build a Europe of the citizens.
