Eoin RafteryCommissioner of External Affairs

I’m Kshitij (the K is silent, and the rest is pronounced kinda like quidditch (go Hufflepuff!)) and I study psychology. I am the new chair, so hopefully, we can find a cool table and complete the set. I usually crack really terrible jokes, (refer to the lines above) which I think is a great quality, because then in tense situations, even if no one laughing, at least everyone is in agreement about their annoyance towards me, and fostering togetherness is important for being a leader. I enjoy darkness and the cold, so as you can imagine, I’m really angry about global warming (also because it’s destroying the planet obviously). I have an approximate knowledge of many things, and I’m always looking to expand this, and so I almost never shy away from trying something new.
As the chairman, I really hope for HCSA to become more popular among honours students. I want more honours students to know and care about this association. I wish for HCSA to be even more friendly and approachable, so that even if you don’t have any friends to go to our events with, you can still join and leave having made friends, or at least some cool acquaintances. I hope we can accomplish this together, and have a fabulous time doing it.
My name is Karolina and I have the pleasure to be a Secretary of this year’s HCSA Board. I am a 19-year old student of International and European law. I am also a coffee addict with a passion for literature, writing, and performing poetry. In my free time, I like attending different events such as extracurricular lectures or screening by Kino Suka. I am really looking forward to meeting you all during amazing HCSA events!
My name is Myrthe and I am happy to introduce myself to you as the Treasurer for the HCSA Board 2018-2019. I am eighteen years old and I am currently in my second year of Sociology. Besides studying I like to spend my time with friends or at Gyas, for rowing or for just having drinks. I hope that I can make this year, together with the rest of the board, a good one! And I am looking forward to get to know you all and making the best out of the next year of HCSA. I hope to see you at the activities!
My name is Ada and I’m the Internal affairs coordinator for the HCSA board 2018-2019. I am currently a third-year bachelor student of chemical engineering. I like dancing, though my choreography is always out of sync. I like picking random edible stuff which is on korting from the supermarket and attempt to make a good dinner out of it, because I imagine that the recipees we have today were established by trial and error. Or perhaps it’s simply the chemist in me. But enough about myself. Together with the rest of the Board, I hope to make the academic year a good and more fun one for you guys, with fun, (educative(?😉)) activities to do besides your studies and to facilitate better relationships between each other by providing a relaxed atmosphere where we can all get to know each other.
I look forward to seeing y’all at the HCSA activities, and as members of the various commitees
My name is Eoin (🔊’Owen’ for those of you who don’t speak Irish) and I’m very pleased to introduce myself to you HCSA-ers as the Commissioner of External Affairs for the HCSA board 2018-2019. I’m 19 years old and currently in my third year of International and European Law, though I’ll be starting a second degree in Philosophy from September. When I’m not studying, you can find me procrastinating on the UB roof terrace, on the squash / badminton court or listening to music with friends.
I hope that this year I can build on the work of my predecessors by building more contacts with international and local firms, companies and organisations to create more opportunities for Dutch and International Honours students alike. I can’t wait to get to know all of you through the activities and plans that we have for the upcoming year!
My name is Femke and I am 24 years old. I’m currently a second year Pedagogical Science student. I very much look forward to being the PR Commissioner for the HCSA Board! I hope to make all our events well-known among HCSA members and all the other Honours College students and make them approachable for everyone. This is just another chance to make friends for life so join us and let’s make it a great year!
