Bente Seijkens

President

Hello! My name is Bente Seijkens, I am 22 years old, a 3rd year student at Maastricht University and the current president of Luna-tik.

 I chose this university because of the PBL system, so that I could fill in my time the way I wanted to. Of course there are still some obligations such as the tutorials, but it’s still a whole lot more of freedom than at other universities in the Netherlands. 

I’m Dutch, but I grew up in Germany. Meaning that I only lived in Germany though, because I went to school and practiced my sports in the Netherlands. I lived in Selfkant which is very close to Sittard, thus close to Maastricht, but I still decided to come and live in Maastricht to enjoy the student life. 

Before I joined the board and became president, I was the president of the party committee last year. We organized all kinds of parties and had a lot of fun. Joining Luna-tik was one of the best decisions I made. Never did I expect to make so many new friends and feel so at home with Luna-tik. I really hope more people want to experience this feeling by joining a committee or just coming to our events. It might be cringe-worthy to say but for me it was life changing. 

In my free time I play water polo. love taking photo’s and ofcourse watch a shit ton of netflix. 

If you every feel like you have questions or just want to say hello, you can always come by at the Luna-tik desk, come to our events or send me an email on president@luna-tik.nl. You can also join our whatsapp group if you want to stay updated and have a chat with some members 

Good luck finishing this year and I hope to see you soon!

Best wishes,

Bente Seijkens

President
