Yesterday the VESTING Board ’22-’23 was announced. If you are interested in learning a bit more about them, read their personal introductions in this article.

Chairman
Hi VESTING Members! My name is Sterre Ropers and I will be the Chairman of the 33rd VESTING Board! For those who don’t know me yet, I will give a short introduction of myself. I am 21 years old and currently a fourth-year EOR student. Previously, I have been a member of the VESTING Sailing Weekend Committee and the Introduction Weekend Committee, and I am currently a member of the Conference Committee! I definitely do not have a talent for sports, however, I like to sail and ski whenever I get the chance. You can also come to me if you are ever in need of some grammatical advice, as I used to have a job as a grammar corrector in high school ;). Hopefully the VK will open again soon, so I can see you all there!

Treasurer
Hi VESTING Members! My name is Maurits Uithof and I will be the treasurer of the VESTING Board 2022-2023. I’m 22 years old and currently in my fourth year and in the master of the EOR(AS) program. Up til now, I have been active at VESTING in the sports, activity, conference committee and the master team. Furthermore I am an active member of the student association R.K.S.V. Albertus Magnus. When corona is laying low I enjoy going to the gym and partying/socializing with my committee and club. I am looking forward to this next board year and hope to see you soon in the VK and the fifty

Secretary
Dear VESTING members, my name is Tomas Wessels and I am excited to announce that I will be the next Secretary of the 2022-2023 VESTING Board. For the ones that don’t know me yet, I would like to introduce myself. I am a 20 year old  third-year econometrics student from a little city in ‘de Achterhoek’. After two years of active participation in multiple activities organized by VESTING, this year I decided to join the Sailing Weekend Committee. I am also a second-year member of G.S.R. Aegir and can therefore occasionally be found in a rowing boat. Next to rowing, I also love a game of football at my hometown football club. I am really looking forward to being a member of the 33rd  VESTING Board and I hope to see you all soon at our activities/socials or at the VK!

Internal Affairs
Dear VESTING members, my name is Chiel Hendricksen and I will be the Internal Affairs Coordinator of the VESTING board 2022-2023. For those that do not know me that well yet, I will shortly introduce myself. I am 21 years old and I was born in Apeldoorn, currently I am in my third year as an EOR-student. In my free time I like to have a drink with friends, binge some Netflix (often Friends) or hang out with my “ploeg” from the rowing club Aegir. During the past two-and-a-halve years at VESTING I have done the Sports Committee and the Career Experience Committee. I really enjoyed being an active member so of course I am super excited to be a member of the VESTING board. I really hope to see all of you soon in the VK and on the next social when it is possible again!

External Affairs
Hola VESTING members, my name is Yannick Pichardo and I will be the External Affairs Coördinator of the VESTING Board 2022-2023! Let me tell you a bit about myself. I am 22 years old and a fourth-year EOR student and will start with my master upcoming semester. I have been an active member during all my years here in Groningen, in my first year I was a member of the Activity Committee and the treasurer for the Freshmen Symposium. In my second year, I became the chairman of the Weekend Trip Committee and in my last years, I have proudly been working for the Data Analytics Team. Besides VESTING, I am a member of R.K.S.V. Albertus Magnus, TAM and Forward. My “thuisthuis” situation is a bit complicated since I am not originally fully Dutch! I was born in the USA and raised in Mexico by a Dutch mother and a Dominican dad. I am really looking forward to this upcoming year!

Public Relations Coordinator
Dear VESTING members, my name is Sofie Tulner and I will be next years Public Relations Coordinator of the VESTING board 2022-2023. For the ones that don’t know me yet, let me allow to introduce myself. I am 20 years old and a third year student of EOR. I have done several committees within VESTING. In my first year I joined the Weekend Trip Committee. In my second year I joined the Freshmen Committee and I am at the moment a member of the Conference Committee. Besides my VESTING activities, I enjoy hanging out with my friends. In my spare time I like to watch Greys Anatomy or play boardgames with my housemates. Next to that, I really love to cook (risotto in particular). I am really looking forward to next year and hope to get to know all of you better!
