My name is Lieke de Brouwer, I’m 19 years old and I was born in Waalwijk, a city in Brabant. When I was younger, I always said that I wanted to become an animal caretaker, and certainly not a vet, because I love animals but I was (and still am) really afraid of needles. That is why I chose to study Animal Sciences and I’m still very happy with that choice.
Next to studying, I like to do fun things with my friends, like watch movies or make and eat food. Since the beginning of my first year as a Veeteler, I have enjoyed attending parties and activities. That's why I really enjoyed being in the Freshmencie and the Akcie. Now I can proudly call myself Education Commissioner I of the board of “De Veetelers”. I believe that everyone should be able to get as much enjoyment out of their studies as possible, so I would like to improve education where possible to achieve that.
