My name is Anouk van Ool and upcoming year I will be the secretary of Uros. Currently I am 19 years old and I just started my second year in Health Sciences. I was born and raised in Echt, a small village about half an hour north of Maastricht. Last year I travelled back and forth, but since this year I have a room of my own.
When I was thee I started with gymnastics, up untill I was sixteen and when I turned nine I also started acrobatic gymnastics. I quit acrobatic gymnastics last August. Both sports I always did with great pleasure and I will cherish them forever.
When I started university last year I immediately knew I wanted to join a sport association. The only remaining question was which one. I had no experience with athletics at all, but I did wanted to try it for some time. So this was the perfect opportunity for me to do so. It was a complete new challenge, but when I look back now I am really happy I faced the challenge.
Next to the function of secretary I will be in two committees, namely the Uros magazine committee and de alumni committee. I am looking forward to this year and I hope you will come to all the practices and activities with just as much fun.
