My name is Fleur, and I am the competition commissioner this school year 2021-2022. I’m very excited to meet all the new people who will join Uros this year and hopefully we can go to lots of competition together and improve many of our times and cheer each other on. Last year was my first year studying in Maastricht and joining Uros. Although the pandemic was making it more difficult to do lots of fun activities, partying and meeting new people, I’m still enjoyed the year a lot and my studies as well so far.
I am 19 years old and will be going into my second year studying health sciences (gezondheidswetenschappen). Originally, I’m from a small town called Haastrecht, near Gouda, in The Netherlands but I’ve lived abroad for most of my life. I have also lived in Nigeria, Romania, Russia and Brazil. I’m so grateful that I have made so many new experiences and great friends from these countries. I really enjoy traveling the world, seeing different places, trying the food, learning the language, and getting to know the culture. I think it’s really one of my passions. This is one of the reasons why I love Maastricht so much; there is a nice combination between both Dutch and international students.
In my free time I like to be active. I’ve done track and field for about 3 years now. My favorite events are the 200m, 400m and 800m. Before track and field, I swam competitively for 10 years. My favorite stroke was breaststroke. I also enjoy going to the gym or joining one of the many fitness classes that UM sports has to offer like spinning, HITT workouts or Clubpower.
I have one older sister called Maaike. She is 22 years old and lives in Rotterdam. I also have a 10-year-old dog called Kaduna and I love to go on walks and cuddle with him.
Besides sports, I also really enjoy hanging out with my friends, going to restaurants and parties. I also love going to festivals, I think they are so fun listening to different types of artists and just the whole atmosphere. I’m very spontaneous and always up for a good time! If there’s good music and nice people, I will be there. Friendships are also super important to me, and I am always down to meet new people.
og genoeg wedstrijden in de tweede helft van het jaar, waar we Uros kunnen vertegenwoordigen met zoveel mogelijk fanatieke leden.
