  • Uliana Ivaniskaja
    Special Events Manager

    My name is Uliana, I am 26 years old and currently living in Amsterdam. I was born in Belarus, and raised in gezellige Brabant (you will probably notice this when talking to me)! Just after turning 18, I exchanged the south for Utrecht, and started my International Business and Management studies. Since then, I have lived in six different countries and traveled to many more ;-).

    Travelling is my biggest passion, and I enjoy discovering new places and cultures. Moreover I love the outdoors, especially hiking in the mountains, and sailing in clear waters. Next to travelling, I like to spend my free time on cooking delicious recipes, photography, CrossFit, and yoga.

    Before joining VodafoneZiggo I worked on challenging projects for Achmea International, Onlia (Achmea’s fintech start-up in Toronto), and Marriott International (headquartered in London). In 2019 I came back to the Netherlands, and started with the Discover traineeship at VodafoneZiggo. During the traineeship I worked in different departments as B2B products, B2C sales, and B2B marketing. After my traineeship I decided to stay in B2B, and currently I am a product manager cyber security services. VodafoneZiggo is a great company, and I am grateful for the opportunities to build my career in B2B.

    I joined the ICA board January 2021, and I will be responsible for our 3 special events (Young Professional of the Year, Olympica, and Meet The Leaders). I got to know ICA through a few events that were promoted in our Young VodafoneZiggo community. I really enjoyed the events, and I met a lot of interesting young professionals through ICA. Therefore, I did not hesitate when a vacancy was free in the board of ICA. Together with our board we will be working on creating the best experiences for our members. I cannot wait to welcome you all at our special events!

    Kind regards,

    Uliana

    I came to know about ICA after attending one of the workshops in 2019 and it helped me realize the value ICA brings to the young professionals. It motivated me to contribute towards the goal of professional as well as personal development of young individuals by providing a platform to connect and share knowledge.  Together with the ICA board and committees, we strive to bring professionals from across different cultures and industries together, through our various initiatives.

  • Julia Blok
    Digital marketing and communications

    My name is Julia, I'm 26 years old and I live in the heart of the Netherlands, in Utrecht. I had a wonderful time studying in the south of the Netherlands (Maastricht) and also in Amsterdam. After several trips abroad and an exchange program in south America, I started working at Randstad. As I've always done extra curricular activities besides studying, I felt like still doing some voluntary work besides my job. 

    After almost a year in the acitivites committee, I decided to join the ICA board as the Marketing & Communications Manager. We are currently deciding on our new website and strategy, a strategic process which I'm exicted to be a part of. If you have any suggestions or questions feel free to hit me up at communications@ica.nl 

    Best regards,
    Julia
