The board of 2018-2019
Meet The Team
Bob van Eijk
The President overlooks the functioning of the board and acts as the spokesperson of Leiden United to external parties.
I was born in Germany, raised in the South of the Netherlands, discovered the world in Canada, and now call Leiden my home. I’m a master’s student Crisis and Security Management, and a sucker for samosas and the kaleidoscopic colours of autumn. Leiden United enabled me and other (international) students to find a place that’s ours, where we belong, and which we can call home.
The Treasurer manages all monetary transactions and other finances.
I was born in The Hague and grew up speaking two languages (Dutch and German). I am currently doing my masters in Crisis and Security Management. I love sports and having good conversations about basically anything! Leiden United gave me the opportunity to both relive my exchange period in Heidelberg and to connect with international students in Leiden.
The Assessor External is responsible for all contact with external parties and associations.
I was born in Nijmegen and moved to Leiden to study ‘Law: Entrepreneurship and Management’. To me Leiden United means bringing people together, having a good time, experiencing differences in culture, good food, and true friendship. I am glad to be part of this association because Leiden United makes me truly feel at home and I hope that more people can experience this.
The Secretary focuses on documenting what happens during a board year and manages all the promotion.
I was born and raised in the city of Delft, and now live in Leiden. I studied in Argentina for half a year and fell in love with the people, language, food and culture. As a soon-to-be anthropologist I look forward to discover and research many more places in the world. Lucky for me, at Leiden United I have the chance to connect to people from many nationalities and interrogate them on their culture and customs.
The Assessor Internal is the confidante for the members and takes care of making the groups and organizing the activities in collaboration with the Activities Committee.
I was born in India, raised in Singapore and am currently doing my masters in the Netherlands. I love food, cats, creating art and hugs. I feel that Leiden United gives everybody a great chance to be a global citizen, bringing so many cultures and ethnicities to our cozy little Leiden.
