Emin, you’re from Kosovo. I’m curious, why did you come to the Netherlands?
I’ve been meaning to study abroad for quite a while. I knew that the Netherlands offers prestige higher education in English language.
I was involved and volunteered for some NGOs in Kosovo. Around 2009 I came in the Netherlands, stichting Olde Vechte to participate in a voluntary program (EVS). During that time I looked and found the best school for me, Fontys ICT – Eindhoven.

What’s the funniest Dutch thing you’ve seen yet?
Maybe not Dutch, but I’ve seen them in the Netherlands, mouth-shaped urinals in a well known fast-food restaurant.

What excites you about Izooble?
I liked the project and the modern technology that’s being used, it matches very well with my knowledge and things that I want to work with.

During my interview I was impressed by the approach and modesty of the Izooble officials.
I believe Izooble has a nice vision and the right people to create a modern app that delivers a great experience for its users. It’s exciting to be part of it :).

What should all Izooblers know about you?
I really like football, and I have a very good team in Eindhoven :).

What’s your favorite current: app, book, movie?

  • App(ish): HTC’s Blinkfeed
  • Books: The General of the Dead Army by Ismail Kadare. Starting Out with C++: From Control Structures through Objects by Tony Gaddis
  • Movies: I like movies a lot, and it’s really hard for me to pick a favorite, but here are some that come from the top of my head: The Dark Knight; The Matrix; Fight Club; Terminator 2; Pulp Fiction; The Godfather…

Favorite viral video?
