"I believe the innovation of food presents us both a great challenge and simultaneously a great opportunity, to contribute to the improvement of public health."
My name is Ole Valkenet. I am a 23-years old Dutch student of the HFIM master program and I will fulfill the role of external commissioner of ISA Umami for the upcoming year. Before starting this master program, I completed my Bachelor’s in Health sciences at Maastricht University. During my Bachelor’s I also lived in Maastricht, however, I have just moved to Venlo.
I chose this master program because it combines some fields that interest me, such as nutrition and health, while also integrating aspects of business and consumer sciences. I believe the innovation of food presents us both a great challenge and simultaneously a great opportunity, to contribute to the improvement of public health.
As the new external commissioner, it will be my responsibility to maintain, promote and improve the relationships with ISA Umami’s current sponsors, alumni, other student associations in Venlo and the Campus Venlo staff. Also, I will explore possibilities in regard to obtaining new sponsors for our association.
I am honored to have been chosen as a board member and will try my best to fulfill my role to my best ability, while also supporting my fellow board members when necessary. I am looking forward to a year of learning experiences, social- and educational activities and fun for all members!
Let’s together make this a great year!
