The achievement I am most proud of during my university studies is actually an extracurricular one. With the founding of VFSO (Vlaams Farmaceutisch Studenten Overleg), a student association comprising all 3000+ pharmaceutical students in Flanders, I was finally able to give something of importance to my fellow students. Something they don't teach at the universities, something that helps to develop and keep a critical mindset. Something to push our boundaries and enables us to grow as a person.
At the start of 2017, I proudly defended my Master thesis. When I came home, I had this strange feeling: I did it. Okay, great! And now? What shall I do next? For so many years, I was just a student. I really enjoyed building a social network, going out with friends, exploring new hobbies and other cultures. I have learned a great deal and always tried to give something back as well. I spent 5 great years in the UFKA praesidium, including one of them as the president. I eventually founded VFSO and found the courage to apply for a position in the international students association called EPSA, of which I attended 5 international congresses.
During the last couple of years, I've been busy. I enjoy being busy, having at least one project or upcoming challenge in view. Friends have often described ma as a person who can get things done. I indeed believe I am a reliable, energetic and positive person. I like being part of a team, getting another perspective on things whilst still being responsible for my own work, goals and deadlines.
I am now looking for a new experience, preferably a position in the Regulatory Affairs environment. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you have an interesting offer for me.
