Alina Di appointed project manager
A graduate of Prague and Mainz universities
03 DECEMBER 2015, AMSTERDAM
This week Alina Di (28) came on board of the team as a project manager for Owlin.
She was born in Luchegorsk in far Eastern Russia (Look it up!), between China and Japan. 'Walking distance to China,' she says. She grew up in Vladivostok, 477 km to the south.
After high school, she went to Prague to study International Relations and European Studies. After her bachelor's, she specialized in International Business at the University of Economics there. In 2010, she decided to go for a double master by entering the University of Applied Sciences in Mainz, Germany as well. She received her MA degrees in 2011. She worked in Frankfurt, Darmstadt and Prague before coming to Amsterdam, at the end of 2014.
Alina loves to read - favourite novel: 'War and Peace' by Tolstoy - and boating. She and her partner bought a small boat in Amsterdam and she loves touring the canals, 'especially in the evenings.' She also likes to play chess but she doesn't want that mentioned because it sounds too dull.
She is fluent in English, Russian and Czech.
