"I am eager to contribute a fresh perspective to the board. I am fully committed to this new chapter with UMAMI and eagerly anticipate the activities and the valuable moments spent with fellow members."
I am Divine-Charlotte Kabeya, a 23-year-old Belgian native raised in a Congolese family. Currently, I am embarking on my first year as a master's student in HFIM, following a background in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Liege, Belgium.
My fascination with the profound impact of food on our health and well-being steered me towards this master's program. Delving into the mechanisms behind how various ingredients and products influence our health and how our dietary choices mold our well-being deeply intrigues me.
My approach involves intertwining various courses, facilitating connections between nutrition and other tangible concepts, thereby enriching my academic pursuit.
In this academic year, I am honored to serve as an ambassador for the faculty. Simultaneously, I am embracing the role of treasurer on the board of ISA UMAMI. Managing finances is a relatively new challenge for me, especially within a team of new faces, but I approach it with enthusiasm and a thirst for acquiring new skills.
As the treasurer, I am entrusted with budget management, ensuring sufficient funds for planned activities, meticulously recording financial transactions, and overseeing reimbursements and payments.
I am genuinely excited to have been chosen as a board member. Confident in my previous experiences, I am eager to contribute a fresh perspective to the board. I am fully committed to this new chapter with UMAMI and eagerly anticipate the activities and the valuable moments spent with fellow members.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.
