I create - I take risks - I live my passion

Striving for excellence - with passion, commitment and discipline - and aspiring for entrepreneurial performance is what drives me forward.

In the 2014 European Mise en Place Cup I had the honour to be part of the IUBH team that managed to claim first prize for the IUBH in an exciting competition about the hospitality industry of the future. Competing with 24 other universities we launched a huge social media campaign as a call for action for a sustainable future of our industry and we are proud that this effort did not go unnoticed.
The EMCup is aimed at ‘I-do-dare students', those who stand out from the crowd and show courage and entrepreneurship with a great level of commitment. The annual competition offers students the chance to make a difference with their vision and ideas.

To commit myself to the cause of student representation at the IUBH as student senate member as well as project manager, co-founder and first president of the Student Common Room - a student run organisation now representing well over 1000 students on and off campus - provided me with the opportunity to put a lot of myself into the initiative. The early achievements and success of this organisation leaves me with the satisfying certainty of having changed something for the good of all students at the IUBH. For me the SCR is a young dynamic organisation that will outlast many generations of students for the benefit of all.

The choice to stand up to the challenge, to commit myself to the greater good of the student community and to have chosen this way for my education makes me proud and happy. I will continue to live up to all challenges that lie ahead.
