Dear reader,

My name is Merel, I’m 21 years old and I study Governance at Utrecht University and are currently in my fourth year. My parents live in Heiloo (near Alkmaar) but I moved to Utrecht about a year ago.

I became a member of Anteros during my third year. I became a member of the travel committee and went to activities and drinks and discovered that I really liked the association and its vibe. I was so enthusiastic about the association that I decided to apply for a board year!

In the board I take the role of Praeses. As the Praeses I lead the board to effectively run the process. I am the face of the association to external partners and members. In several situations I will speak on behalf of the board and I will lead the general member meetings.

In addition to these tasks I also have a number of additional tasks. For example I am the point of contact for the Midzomergracht festival and I take place as an acting board member in the travel committee, introduction committee and themed drinks committee.  

Now you know a little bit about me but I would love to see you at our weekly drinks to have a chat!
