Chair

Terrarium workgroup

Master committee 

Hi everybody!

 

My name is Aimee Sardijo-Brouwer and I have the honour of being chair of Archeopteryx this year. I am very excited to be the face of the association. In addition, I will ensure that all meetings go smoothly and I am responsible for the board. This year I will also take on the terra working group and masters committee, I'm really looking forward to doing this!

I am currently in the waiting period and I can start the masters in September. Alongside my job, I have a lot of time to organize all kinds of cool things for the association! My passion lies with exotic animals, I was able to discover this by doing an internship at the AAP foundation. Cuddling with meerkats in Africa, swimming with sea lions and shark cage diving, when it comes to animals, nothing's too crazy. Thats why I'm always up for an adventure. But I also think it's fantastic to deliver sheep or to lie on the couch with a cat. Anyway, this probably applies to all of us, just give me an animal and I'll have fun.

I'm also a fan of crazy animal facts, so if you know something nice, don't hesitate to contact me! Hope to see you soon at our activities!

Vice President

Wildlife working group

CS committee

Hi! 

 

My name is Marleen Wolters and I am already in my third year of the bachelor. Next year I will take on the position of Vice-Chairman, which means that I will be responsible for the sponsors and collaborations of Archeopteryx. 

I'm also known as the 'monkey girl': all you have to do is mention one thing about monkeys and I'll be all over the place. My interest in wildlife started with a documentary about Jane Goodall and that fascination has lingered ever since. I think it's very cool that my position gives me a glimpse into various organizations that are involved in wildlife conservation and other aspects of the world of birds and exotic animals. In addition, I am a massive chatterbox: I'm very good at chatting about my passions and therefore I expect that calls with sponsors won't be a problem.

Outside of Archeopteryx I dance at STUdance and I am also a member of the Lustrum Committee there. If you talk to me, I might just do a happy dance. In addition to being vice-chairman next year, I will take on the Wildlife Working Group and CS committee, which I am really looking forward to!

Come and have a chat with me or dance with me at one of our drinks!

secretary

Bird working group

 Symposium committee

Hello all!

 

My name is Sophie Klopper. This year I am a secondyear bachelor student. Next year I will be the secretary of Archeopteryx. So I will be the written word of our association. You can always contact me if you have any questions. 

I went into the introduction last year as a little duckling. I immediately registered with the bird working group. I find birds and exotic animals very interesting and I hope to be able to do something with them in the future. That is why I quickly became active within the association. A year later I can proudly say that I will become the chairman of the bird working group. In addition, I will also be taking on the symposium committee. I will make sure that we organize an exciting and educational event.

On the weekends you can often find me with my friends in a cafe in De Pijp. I am also a lover of art and I like to photograph and paint.

I'm really looking forward to this year and so don't hesitate to approach me if you want to chat or if you have any questions. You can reach me via secretaris@archaeopteryx-online.com

Treasurer

Aquafauna working group

Leisure committee

Hi everybody!

 

My name is Linde Majoor and I am currently in my third year of the bachelor. This year I will be treasurer of Archeopteryx, which means that I will be involved in all the finances of our beautiful association. 

I grew up abroad, in South Africa and Qatar, so I was able to see many different and special animals up close and personal. I've always had a love for animals and this really fuelled my passion for wildlife. So, I didn't have a typically Dutch childhood, but I can tell riveting stories about my experiences with cheetahs, sharks, rhinoceroses and camels. I am also a huge fan of the underwater world and the animals in it, which is why I am very happy to be chair of the aquafauna working group this year. This year I will also take up the chairmanship of the leisure committee and I will work with them to organize all kinds of fun activities! I also like photography and reading, and I really enjoy being outside in nature or meeting my friends. 

I'm truly looking forward to the coming year, so come by the loft sometime to have a chat with me! You can also reach me at penningmeester@archaeopteryx-online.com.

Editor

Info Market Commission

Career Market

BLE Commission

Hi everybody!

My name is Marlene Döring and I am now in my second year of the bachelor. I am very happy that I will be editor of Archy this year. This means that I will try to put out 5 very nice AV's this year and I will make all the posters. 

For as long as I can remember I've loved animals and I have always had a great interest in wild animals especially. For as Iong as I can remember I've loved watching series where you get to take a look behind the scenes of a zoo, I always thought it was impressive what those vets were able to do. I am ecstatic that Archy can give me a good look into the world of wildlife and that I get to learn a lot about this in the coming year.

Outside of Archy I like to socialize with friends and I enjoy traveling. So, it's amazing that I will be chairman of the BLE committee to plan the next great trip. Next year I will also be the chairman of the information market committee and the career market, I am very much looking forward to this! 

I hope to meet you soon at one of our many activities, so come by! If you want to reach me you can always do so via redacteur@archaeopteryx-online.com.

General Board Member

KKF working group

sandwich committee

Hey Hey!

My name is Sam van Zuijlen and I am in my third year of the bachelor. This year I am fortunate enough to be the general board member of Archy; a great position in which I will mainly be involved in the promotion of our great association and all its activities.

I've always been obsessed with practically all animals; my brother and I always managed to get rabbits, hamsters and a pygmy hedgehog for pets in addition to dogs. Moreover, I often went to help my grandfather with his birds and fish, or I went looking for worms and snails in the playground. However I do have the greatest love for small mammals, so I am very happy that I get to chair this working group. I will also take on the sandwich committee where we will build the tastiest sandwiches. Furthermore, I still work at a fruit-and-vegetable farm and I fill my time, among other things, with meeting friends, going to the gym, or simply watching series.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have great ideas for merch, sandwiches or whatever! You can also reach me at ab@archaeopteryx-online.com or through the socials which I manage.
