With 7 levels, a restaurant on the top floor that boasts views of Amsterdam and various art installations, this is not your usual library. The collection of books and media is outstanding. Marina goes there often not only because her Aunty works there, but also to get some peace and quiet: “I just like to go and sit in the quiet spaces, surrounded by calm people to read and chill out”.
Marina works in Canvas, but has also done an internship with us for PR & communications. She’s not afraid of working hard and enjoys being surrounded by lots of different people.
She is also an animal lover, with a special interest in birds: “I like watching birds with binoculars and then researching them in bird books.” In fact she just loves animals and her dream job is to work with PR & Communications in Artis Zoo.
