Dear members of the K.N.P.S.V.,
We are the 2nd Activity Committee of the K.N.P.S.V. called ‘AbraCadabra’. This committee, with 6 people, is (almost) entirely based in Groningen. It is up to us to support the K.N.P.S.V. party in October and Pharmaceutical Industry Day (also known as NIA Day) in March! Let us introduce ourselves to you.
Golshan Akbari is the secretary. Golshan is 20 years old and is currently in her final year of Bachelor of Pharmacy. Golshan is originally from Iran and is therefore busy learning the Dutch language! In her spare time, she enjoys shopping with friends or watching Netflix.
Our lovely treasurer is Valentine Julien. Valentine is 20 years old and is currently in the final year of the Bachelor of Pharmacy. As she is born and raised in France, Valentine enjoys introducing the committee to the French culture. Valentine provides lots of fun in the committee with her enthusiasm and cooking skills. In her spare time, Valentine can often be found in the kitchen, but she also enjoys fitness.
Haijo Molema is our Commissioner I. He is 24 years old and is currently in the second year of the master’s degree in Pharmacy. Together with Anne and myself, he is one of the oldest of this committee, but that is certainly not noticeable since Haijo can still be found quite often in the city centre. Haijo is also a member of the Gronings Phrmaceutisch Mannen Dispuut Snoeihard. He also regularly plays football and supports FC Groningen.
Jesse Postel is our Commissioner II. He is 20 years old, making him one of the youngest of our committee. He is currently in his final year of the Bachelor of Pharmacy, together with Valentine and Golshan. In addition to this committee, Jesse is still active at the rowing club Gyas and athletics club Vitalis. He also likes to play football with friends and supports FC Twente.
Anne van de Loo is our Commissioner III. Anne is 24 years old and is currently doing a K.N.P.S.V. board year, and therefore she is the only one from Utrecht. Despite the distance, she can still be found regularly at our committee evenings in Groningen! In her spare time, Anne swims regularly at the swimming club Het Zinkstuk.
Furthermore, I, Ellen Kok, am President of this committee. I am 23 years old and I am currently in my last year of the Master Pharmacy. Although I am one of the oldest of the committee, I often still go to the city centre for a drink with the AC or my year club. I also like to play squash and to play tennis with friends and I will never miss a match of the Dutch national football team.
We are really looking forward to meeting you this year during (our) K.N.P.S.V. activities and together we will make something great out of it!
On behalf of the Activity Committee 2022-2023 ‘AbraCabra’,
Anne van de Loo
