Eva Globalme Marketing Assistant
Hello! My name is Eva, and I’m a Marketing and Project Assistant at Globalme. Where do I even start? Well, I was born, raised, and even went to University in a city in Germany you may have heard of: Düsseldorf.
One of the more well-known German cities, Düsseldorf impresses with its avant-garde architecture, energetic nightlife, and is renowned for its fashion and art-scene. There are, as you can imagine, a lot of great things about the city that go deeper than its posh exterior; it’s at the heart of the Rhine Ruhr region (which makes inter-city traveling very easy), it’s a university city filled with lots of diverse and multicultural people, and is home to a beautiful historic Old Town and ‘Longest Bar in the World’. Unfortunately, the ‘Longest Bar in the World’ is not actually one very long bar, it’s a collection of over 250 of them! I spent quite a few hilarious nights drinking the locally-brewed “alt bier” (“old beer”) and playing foosball with friends while living there. Another special thing about the city is this amazing holiday called “Karneval” (“Carnival”). It isn’t celebrated all throughout Germany, but the residents of Düsseldorf and the nearby Cologne certainly go wild at this time of year!
As you can see, it was a fantastic place to grow up in; no wonder I decided to stay and pursue my University career there! I dove into my Media and Cultural studies degree and worked for some great travel companies on the side. Not only did this combination introduce me to both the creative and technical aspects of Marketing, but it also meant that I caught the travel bug pretty hard. I came to Vancouver for an internship while I was still in school, fell in love with the city, ocean, and mountains that surround it, and knew I had to come back.
I found Globalme online, applied, interviewed, and voila! Since starting at Globalme, I’ve slowly been able to dip my toes into several different kinds of projects – even those outside of Marketing. I love being able to learn new things, and to be exposed to so many different cultures, influences, and worldly perspectives. I’m thoroughly enjoying being able to work on both the creative and technical side of the house; it allows me to not only bring my ideas to life and to stretch my creative muscles, but also to see the fruit of my efforts in the real world.
My goal for this winter is to make use of those beautiful British Columbia mountains, and to learn how to ski! Although I’m already fluent in German and English, I’ll also be keeping my eye out for any Spanish courses – so let me know if you know of any good ones!
Here are two truths and one lie about me – take a guess at what is what, and tweet it at us at @Globalmedotnet!
