Clelia Venturin

President

Hello everyone! I’m Clelia, an Italian third year focusing on biomedicine. As president of the AUCSA board, my role would include keeping an eye on the goals and well-being of the association, as well as the internal dynamics of the board. Moreover, I will be working along side the Diversity Commission to strive to create an environment where everyone has the opportunity to live to the fullest their time at AUC. Apart from my AUCSA life, I love spending quality time with my friends, dancing and talking to people, so feel free to approach me at any time. For AUCSA related question, you can reach me here:  clelia.venturin@aucsa.nl 

Ankita Brahmachari

Secretary 

Hello! I’m Ankita, I‘m currently in my third year at AUC, following the Biomedicine track. I am originally from India, but I was born in Singapore and grew up in Bangkok. My role is mainly making sure that you get all the information needed to participate in community life, as well as assuring that the administration part of the AUCSA and the Board goes as smoothly as possible. I‘m also going to be working alongside the Acquisitions Commission this year, which helps the AUCSA to build its network outside the bubble. Apart from AUCSA life, you will find me out with my friends, cooking or watching tv. Even though most of the time I will be typing away or sending emails, I‘m always happy to chat, so feel free to approach me whenever! You can also shoot me a message (and make me smile) here: ankita.brahmachari@aucsa.nl.

Rein Bernard 

Treasurer

Hello everybody, my name is Rein. I’m in my third year of studying phyics and sustainable development here at AUC. I will also be your treasurer for the year, meaning I will make sure that all our committees, commissions and teams have enough money to organise events for all students to enjoy. I am also part of our Sustainability Commission and the Campus Commission, which looks after our dorms. Winter Formal is also on my agenda, and I plan to make it amazing. Since I am Dutch I’m also tall, so my sport of choice is basketball. Other than that I love cooking and having a nice chat with some friends. If i’m not lost in the AUCSA budget you will find me during office hours or somewhere around the dorms. I’m always approachable, either in person or on rein.bernard@aucsa.nl 

Oliver West

Hey everyone! I am Oli, a second year from the UK. I am a social sciences major currently focusing on combining economics and sustainability. As one of your CAOs, I try my best to support all the events and initiatives of my 10 committees. This year I really hope to engage the community and make sure there is something for everyone to enjoy. I am also Vice-President, which involves helping Clelia, and the representative for the association on the Social Committee of the UCSRN. Together with Sarah, I will also be organising this year’s Dormfest which I am very excited about! Outside of the AUCSA, you would probably find me out with friends, playing sports or eating. I can’t wait to get to know everyone as life re-ignites at AUC so please feel free to approach me in the AB or on the street or shoot me a message at oliver.west@aucsa.nl.
