I am currently living in The Hague and studying Governance Economics and Development at Leiden University College.
I am a student and work part-time, but I aspire to work in Political Economic Research. I first intend to do a Master's or get some experience working in companies that are aimed to create value through community practices, sustainability, or p2p platforms.
I am in love with movement, any type; enjoy reading, listening to and playing music; and being in nature.
There is a lot of nature and calm spaces to escape from the city chaos. I live near Den Haag central and having a huge park next to it, feeling safe outside, having access to basic services puts me in a privileged position.
I wish there were more local businesses near the center of the Hague and more association between people in the neighborhood.
I expected it to be very practical, especially for me as an international student, since I had accommodation within the university and in the center of The Hague with many facilities nearby. However, I wish I could have some contact with people in the neighborhood as I expected to get more in touch with the Dutch culture. So obtaining more information on local activities, volunteering, would be a great solution for me and other students.
I have knowledge in working in groups, organizing activities, such as the LUC debating committee I am currently running.
I see my role as a connection between universities and community projects. It could be useful to gather volunteers, organize events, inform or promote.
