Nini Pieters: Internal organisation/Chair
“When I became involved in Right2Education in January 2016, the initiative had just come into existence. Therefore, the first few months of the project were challenging, sometimes chaotic, but also incredibly enriching. All board members had different and changing positions, such that at times I was the event manager, at other times the student coordinator, and often it was a true team-effort. The thing we have shared and kept at all times within the board was the great passion for this project, and I still have just as much passion in the current position of chair/ internal organization.
It is incredible to see how since the start of Right2Education, support within and outside of AUC has increased steadily, and how fast the project has grown to what it is now. My enthusiasm for the different aspects of Right2Education has grown with every day, just like the project itself did. Through Right2Education, I have learned a lot in terms of organizing and closely working together with an amazing team. But beyond that, Right2Education also teaches me about the values of education, culture, friendship, and about the value of a truly diverse community. It is all these things taken together that make me incredibly grateful to be part of Right2Education.“
