Alina Pishchalnikova (The Netherlands)
Born in Siberia, Alina was ready for challenges since her first breath of cold winter air on February 19th. In 2005, She became the finalist of Future Leaders Exchange Program (FLEX). This program was funded by the U.S. Department of State to cultivate relationships between America and citizens of the former Soviet Union.
After the year in the US ended, her goals unconsciously changed for the better. By studying international relations in Tomsk State University, Russia, She gained the complex vision of the modern world system, its laws and mechanisms.
As for her latest career places, She worked as Recruitment Specialist in PricewaterhouseCoopers and Assistant to the Regional HR Director in Robert Bosch Company in Moscow, Russia. That experience helped her to understand Russian Market and company’s needs. During her university years she has been actively involved in AIESEC, SIFE and other non-profit organizations where she helped with implementations of social projects.
In June 2014 she moved to beautiful country Netherlands. Learned Dutch and passed Staatsexamens Nt2.2 (B2 level). Since October 2015 She is working at Applied Medical in Amersfoort as Branding Coordinator Europe. Every day she supports sales teams with products and organization of small and regional congresses.
Currently she is responsible for Germany, UK, Austria, Switzerland and Nordics (Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark). Another side of her job is to manage marketing and promo budget, internal newsletter and translations.
Besides, part of her responsibility is organization of environmental events such as Volunteer days where team members can contribute back to nature. In her belief being Youth Time ambassador will help her to develop open and critical mindset. She is so excited and interested in this new opportunity!
