The coming year it will be my honour to be the treasurer in the XXXIInd board of the ESV. My name is Merijn van der Leeuw and I will be a third year’s bachelor student this year. I follow the track of International Economics & Business. I am currently 19 years old, and I am originally from Ede. However, now I live in Nijmegen, where I have got a room in the middle of the city.
I have been an active member of the ESV from my first year on. In my first year I was a member of the economics committee, where you organise activities for international students. Furthermore, I also was a part of the editorial committee, for which I wrote articles that were published on the website. In my second year I did both these committees again, only this time I was the chairman of the economics committee. From this experience I learnt how much fun it can be to organise activities.
As treasurer of the ESV I am responsible for the finances of the association. I manage all of the expenses and invoices, and it is my task to keep the association financially alive. This means that you may not always notice what I do for the ESV, but please do not hesitate to start a conversation with me! The upcoming year will be different for all of us, but still I hope to have a great year with everyone!
