Being on the board was a unique experience. Although it's definitely hard work, you'll get to know your board better than you ever imagined and it will bond you for life. It is very rewarding accomplishing your goals together - whether it be sponsorship contracts, playing a role in university politics, fun activities or organising national events such as the LIMO. I hope to one day find such a sense of achievement in my professional career. The board year offers you the opportunity to find out what your strengths and weaknesses are and to experiment with different responsibilities to see what is your personal preference; something very valuable for your further career.”
My favorite part of being board was making welcome first-years feel welcome. Things can be scary for new students, especially for internationals. Just being the person to keep the room open, the coffee warm and the mood welcoming was the board role which I enjoyed most.”
