Why support one organization in particular and not another one? It was a big dilemma. That’s how the name Union Association was created, and its objective with it: to support other organizations. Thanks to our events, we have been supporting several organizations for over a year.
Angelo, Organization president
My name is Angelo, I am Union Association’s president. I am not really a big TV show fan but I am passionate about certain TV shows. That means I can watch the same show at least 50 times a year. (Like Grey’s Anatomy, Sabrina & Desperate Housewives for exemple ) Before I created Union Association, I was wondering which organization we could support with our own. But after deliberation, it was way too hard to choose only one organization to support. Why support one organization in particular and not another one? It was a big dilemma. That’s how the name Union Association was created, and its objective with it: to support other organizations. Thanks to our virtual events, we have been supporting several organizations for over a year. Planning events just to plan events doesn’t really make sense to me so we might as well use our events’ visibility to support other organizations that need it. In the organization, I am mainly in charge of discussing with agents, handling contracts as well as our social media. For everything else (budgets for the events, announcements, event planning, etc…) I am collaborating with the organization’s vice-president (Jessica) without whom we wouldn’t have been able to do everything we have done up until now.
I am Manon, I’m 32 , I am a HR assistant and accountant in life and a mom of 3 children I fell into shows during collège (so a long time ago) with shows like friends, Hartley, Un Dos Tres and the saturday trilogy (love to smallville, charmed and SPN) during high school I continued with others prison break, kyle XY, one tree hill… And never stopped today I have a top5 that’s always changing but we can mention OTH, TVD, Vikings, The Royals, New Girl, Sense8, GoT… anyway many shows that are very different but that I love so much for very different reasons. Some relax me, others make me laugh, others make me travel, cry, love, hate… First convention attended in 2013 and same, I never stopped I am thus treasurer for Union Association and very proud to be a part of the adventure you can also hear me translate during virtuals Thank you for following Union Association’s adventure and thanks to Angelo and Jessica for their trust
Hi, my name is Rike. I’m 24 years old (or young) and live in Germany. One could say that I’m a very optimistic person who’s trying to make the best of everything. I’m passionate about traveling, concerts, football and conventions, which is why I’m glad to work for Union Association as a graphic designer.
Hi, I’m Mylène aka mymy. I am 21 and live in the north of France. I am a third year English student so I practice English in all its aspects quite often. I am quite smily, at least I try to bring a little positivity in this world, that’s kind of why I joined UA’s team to see you smile tons! I am mainly fan of shows since around collège, between The Queen’s Gambit, Reign and Peaky Blinders. I also love to travel, meet new people as well as do interviews!
My name is Carla, I just turned 21 and am a translator for Union Association. Initially a pure product of the south, I had to unwillingly leave it for the big capital. Currently studying at business school, I quickly found I had a lot of free time which I didn’t know what to do with. That’s when I found tweets from Angelo about Union Association. A little fate twist one could say. And bam now I am a member. What I love the most is the money raised and donated to organizations, but it’s also to see the fan’s relaxed faces at each event when I tell them I am here to translate for them. I am convinced I was born at the wrong time, I would have loved to live in the 17-18th century. That’s probably why I love Pride and Prejudice. But beware I am also a young student well aware of the latest trends. The fact that TikTok got me is proof enough. I am still trying to create clout as well as I can during my free time… Fun fact about me: my dream is to set foot in as many countries as humanly possible. I already have 30 on my list! Covid surely slowed my plans but they’re going to start again very soon… Being a fan of concerts, food, walks, board games, and many other things means I get on well with everyone and I love meeting many new people. You could have guessed it, I am very sociable.
It’s the essence of Union Association: the Union. Being together, working together.
