Internal Commissioner

Hi everyone!


My name is Wies van Beek. I am from a small village called Wilnis, half an hour from Amsterdam. For this masters program, I moved to Venlo and I am enjoying it a lot so far. Because the group of HFIM is small we became close friends and we try to make the most out of our study in Venlo. I did my bachelors Health and Life Sciences at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. As part of this, I also studied a year abroad at the University of East Anglia in Norwich. After this it was clear for me that I did not necessarily want to do a research focussed masters and when I visited the open day in Maastricht I came across this study.


During this academic year I will be the head of all committees of ISA Umami, given the function of Internal Commissioner. It basically means that I keep an eye on all the activities that are organized by our four committees. During my bachelors I joined a lot of committees of my study association and this gives me the opportunity to use this experience in my role as Internal Commissioner.


I am very excited for the upcoming year and I can promise, together with the other board members, I will do my best to make this a great year for all our students and I am sure we will have a lot of fun this year. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the study program or Umami.


See you soon!
