Berend Holwerda

My name is Berend Holwerda, I am 22 years old and I was born in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Over the past years I have studied Econometrics and Operations Research at Tilburg University and this year I am doing a board year as the chairman of MAK Mentorship System - Supported by Asset. I joined MAK in the summer of 2021 and in my first year at MAK I enjoyed being active in several committees. Next to that, I became part of an amazing group of friends with whom I am still creating great memories. Last September, I started my board year at MAK. As the chairman, I represent MAK to stakeholders like the University, Asset and other associations. Next to that, I am responsible for writing and executing the policy, to lead the organisation. All these tasks give me the possibility to develop myself on skills I did not learn during my studies. Next to professional skills, a board year is also a great opportunity to get to know more about yourself and to extend your network.

Fleur de Wolf

Hi! I am Fleur de Wolf and this year I am the Vice-Chairman of MAK! Before I started my board year at MAK I was studying International Business Administration. I started as an external board member, so I was not part of MAK until I joined the board. Once I joined the board I immediately integrated into this amazing group of friends! As the Vice-Chairman of MAK your main responsibilities lie with the PASS Mentoring Program of TiSEM and the introduction period. A close contact with the university comes along with these tasks. This contact is a very educational experience and gives you a chance to obtain matching skills! Besides PASS and the introduction period, I am responsible for the internal affairs of MAK. Coordinating a mix of informal and formal committee’s is one of the parts I enjoy most about being the Vice-Chairman of MAK! At last, as a Vice-Chairman you support the Chairman of MAK with writing policy and deciding on the long-term strategy of the organization.

Sebastiaan van die

Hi! My name is Sebastiaan van Die, I am 22 years old and I am from Arnhem. Before the start of my board year at MAK I was studying Economie & Bedrijfseconomie at Tilburg University. I also have been active at MAK for 2 years, working in different kind of committees that MAK provides. Last September, I started my board year as the Treasurer of MAK. This means I am responsible for all financial concerns of MAK. This includes determining budgets, maintaining the financial situation throughout the year and writing the annual report. Moreover, My fellow board members and I coordinate several committees who organize different activities, and we are responsible for the general policy of MAK. It goes without saying that being a MAK board member is very rewarding. A board year offers you the opportunities to develop yourself in a broad sense.

Jules strijtveen

Hi! My name is Jules Strijtveen and this year I am MAK’s Educational Affairs! After I graduated from the bachelor Business Economics, I decided it was time to develop myself outside the classes of Tilburg University in a more practical way. After becoming active in several committees of MAK it was clear to me that I could boost my personal development by doing a board year at this fantastic organization! The ‘work hard, play hard’ mentality with which you organise amazing events with a close group of friends is in my opinion unique for a student organisation. At the beginning of September, I started my board year as an Educational Affairs. This function encompasses a great variety of responsibilities, but the main focus is on Study Support. I try to help students who face difficulties with passing certain courses by providing tutorships taught by other students who have passed the same course with a high grade. This requires a lot of planning and organisation by doing interviews, scheduling, and promoting tutorships and improving the quality of our offerings. Moreover, I coordinate committees like the Student for a Day and the Introduction committee. Looking back on the past few months of my board year, I can only conclude that I have developed myself in various ways and that a board year at MAK in general is a boost for your learning curve and an extension of your network!
