Mirte van Balen

Hellooo, nu name is Mirte and I am chairwoman of the LustrumCie. I am in my first year of my masters biology and I am currently in my internship at Vroege Vogels. I didn't know much about birds yet, but know I can distinguish between a pigeon and a coal tit. Usually I am a happy person and I love rainbows and unicorns (and beer). My favorite color is so glitter, cause ad you know: you wanna be fitter? Everybody gets happy from glitter!

Dominique Kemps

Hello fellow biologist, I’m Dominique, secretary of the Lustrumcie. I’m a 4th year biologist, 22 years old and I like Wageningen so much that I will stick around for another while! I’m not an ecologists, instead I focus on genetics and genetic manipulations in microorganisms. In my leisure, I like to be outside to go for a walk or to practice my longboarding skills. Otherwise, you can find me in the gym or in the swimming pool of the Bongerd (especially for the fun waterslide!). The spare time left is quickly filled with cozy evenings with roommates, my extra study as Personal Trainer and besides I take good care of my many room plants and my tree. Hope to see you soon!

Hedwig van de Kamp

My name is Hedwig and I’m the treasurer of the LustrumCie 2022! I am a fifth-year student in biology, and in the second year of my master. I joined the LustrumCie because I enjoyed the bits I saw from the previous Lustrum and because I want to give you all a lustrum worthy of the title. I live in Wageningen with my Gecko Guac and enjoy this a lot. You have probably seen me at several activities of Biologica, as I do a lot in the association. And now the lustrum as well, I hope to see you all there!

Ilja van Lierop

Hey everyone, My name is Ilja van Lierop and together with Diana I will acquisition sponsorship for upcoming Lustrum! I’m currently in the fourth year of my bachelor and I just started my masters. I chose major A and I’m interested in plants. You could possibly have seen me around already, since I am a member of a number of committees and I was once in the board of the association.

I’m 21 years old and I’m from Nuenen, which is located near Eindhoven, so I am always in for some ‘Brabantse gezelligheid’. I live in a studio located on the Marijkeweg, which I’m very grateful for, together with my plants. I always enjoy meeting with friends and having a great time at parties. Furthermore, I have a lot of hobbies, including drawing, painting with acrylics or watercolours, sewing stuffed animals or just general arts and crafts. I also enjoy travelling and hope to see even more of the world.

I hope that we will organise a fun Lustrum full with activities, I’m looking forward to it! Regards, Ilja
