Hi everyone! Hereby we would like to present ourselves to you as the new Evolucio Board. This year’s board will have a different structure then the previous boards. Therefore we would like to introduce ourselves and our positions to everyone. The Board of 2015 is comprised of six members, who have graduated in either 2013, 2014 or 2015.
We would hereby like to present the Evolucio Board of 2015:
Georgina Kuipers – Coordinator
Hey! I am Georgina Kuipers, a member of LUC’s founding Class of 2013. I majored in World Politics and went on to get my MSc (Research) in Political Science and Public Administration at Leiden University. While I love hearing the stories of my friends traveling all over the world, I’m sticking with The Hague for a little while longer. LUC was my home for three years and I’d love to stay connected with the amazing people I met there – and all other wonderful future alumni – through Evolucio.
Odette Vriese – Event Coordinator
Hi everyone! My name is Odette Vriese, graduate of LUC’s Class of 2014. I did a major in World Politics and started last year with my MSc in Public Administration, the track Public Management, at Leiden University. Since I was a board member last year and decided to stay in The Hague for another year, I also wanted to remain part of Evolucio. Together with Ruba we will organise a few different events for both alumni and the current LUC community, such as the return of the current affairs night – keep an eye out for that one! Above all, I would love to stay in touch with LUC for another year through Evolucio while also showing that there is life after LUC.
Ruba Nawaz – Event Coordinator
What’s up?! I’m Ruba Nawaz. I graduated this year and already miss LUC, which only means one thing: be part of Evolucio! Apart from staying in touch with LUC and the alumni community, I hope to organize together with Odette some cool events this year to engage with current students as well. I’m currently doing my Masters in ‘Philosophy, Politics and Economics’ (PPE) in Leiden and also conducting a few independent filming projects in The Hague. Thankfully enough reasons to still hang around in The Hague, where I spent three amazing years of my life.
Lieke Bos – Online Coördinator
Hi! I’m Lieke and I’m from LUC’s founding Class of 2013, when I graduated in Global Justice. Originally from the Netherlands, I’ve since LUC wandered across Asia and Europe – both studying and working. I did a double masters in International Political Economy at the University of Warwick and Strategic Studies at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (NTU) in Singapore. Currently I’m working for an intergovernmental organisation based in Singapore, so drop me a line if you happen to be around or pass by, I’d be more than happy to show you around or give you any tips.
Ilene van Brouwershaven – Online Coordinator
Hi everyone! My name is Ilene and I graduated from LUC this summer as a member of the Class of 2015. This year I hope to further explore my interests in life by doing internships, voluntary work etc. The LUC alumni community is an interesting and inspiring one, one where we can inspire each other and profit from each other’s expanding knowledge. As an online coordinator I hope to contribute to this by providing and managing a platform for all of us to stay in touch where ever in the world we are!
Dear all, My name is Eliza and I’m a member of Class 2014. Currently I am doing my LL.M. in Leiden and previously have worked at the ICC, OPCW and the Latvian embassy in the Hague. During the last years, both at LUC and when starting my professional career, I have learned to appreciate the importance of a good network. Therefore, I have joined the Evolucio board to work on creating a comprehensive LUC Alumni Network. Throughout this academic year I will contact alumni from all graduating years and ensure that Evolucio has a strong database containing our whereabouts, studies in progress or completed, internships, jobs, etc. Wishing you a successful year, Eliza
We are all looking forward to a great year. If you have any questions, remarks or ideas please do get in touch with us!
