Robin Hillenbrink – Chairman
Hi everyone, my name is Robin and I’m 20 years old. My hobbies include Netflix, going out, visiting concerts, not exercising and of course reading. Besides being a second-year literary student, I am also in my third year of Philosophy. So if you ever want to discuss the big questions of life, you will know where to find me. I look forward to meeting you all and hope you will have a good time in Utrecht!
Nerys van Tent Becking – Secretary
Hi! My name is Nerys, 22 years old and right now in my second year of literary studies. I’ll fullfill the role of secretary upcoming year, meaning I’ll read (and reply) on your emails, keep track of what’s going on and regulate more affairs. Next to my obvious fondness of reading I enjoy cooking (and eating), I adore plants and cats and love listening to music and playing piano. However this may sounds like the portrayel of a couch potato, I actually really enjoy being outdoors. Not just for the occasional dancing accompanied by a drink, but also for hikes, going for a run or to ride my bicycle.
Willem van Amsterdam – Treasurer
Hi, I’m Willem and I am the treasurer of Euphorion for this year. However the title makes me feel like a pirate, my role is more like bookkeeping and coincounting. Not the most epic thing to do, I guess, but luckily I got Homer on my shelf to keep me entertained. Well, c’était la, as we say in Dutch, so I will quit this awkward ego-document and hope I will see you this year!
Evi Verleije – Commissioner of Internal Affairs
Hey! I’m Evi, 19 years old and a second-year literature student. I spend way too much time on social media where I am always searching for cool art projects and inspiration for my own creative interests. My ‘addiction’ to Instagram is pretty useful for my function this year, as I will be in charge of the website and social media (yay!). This summer you could find me at festivals armed with my disposable camera and at the beach because my parents live 5 minutes away from the beach (double yay!). I am not just a fan of literature so in order to keep all my interests satisfied I will be following a minor in media and culture. Ps. You can ALWAYS wake me up for ABBA because I am a true Dancing Queen. Groetjes!
Cynthia van Tongeren – Commissioner of Public Relations
Hey! My name is Cynthia and next year I will be the commissioner of public relations as a 23-year-old third-year student of the Bachelor Literature studies. This means that I will be primarily involved in all education-related issues, books, and the bookstore Savannah Bay. So if you have any questions about any of this you can approach me; as well as about questions on further years of your studies, since I’m (hopefully) almost finished. Besides literature, I also follow a Bachelor of French. I am the ultimate overachiever and have therefore practically no social life, as befits a good literature nerd, haha.
