The Admiral (31) – President
Having previously lived in different cities, came to the Hague recently to work. Enjoying creative hobbies from photography to the theatre. Became a member of Rotaract because it seems as an active young group who put themselves for the good of the area.
Pierpaolo (31) – Treasurer
I come from Rome, where I lived and finished my studies in Business. After my graduation in 2016 I decided to move abroad looking for a new opportunity and I ended up in Den Haag, selling Dutch vegetables all around the world.
With Rotaract Club Scheveningen I can give my contribution to the local community and receive every time new input and ideas about a very different topic, thanks to the multicultural environment of the club.
Een gesprek begint vaak met de vraag: wat doe je? Naar mijn idee is het eerder relevant te vertellen waar je vandaan komt en waar je naartoe wilt. Ik ben geboren en getogen in Den Haag. Na mijn studie kunstgeschiedenis in Leiden en verschillende periodes in het buitenland te hebben gewoond, ben ik teruggekeerd naar mijn geboortestad. Ik ben lid geworden van Rotaract omdat ik samen met andere young professionals wil bijdragen aan een samenleving waarin mensen zich met elkaar verbonden voelen. De bijeenkomsten zijn gezellig en vol inspiratie; het is interessant om nieuwe mensen vanuit diverse achtergronden en beroepsgroepen te ontmoeten en gezamenlijk te werken aan mooie projecten.
My name is Angeliki and I am from Greece. I am excited to introduce myself as a member of Rotaract club. I have a BSc in Psychology from Leiden University and I will start my MSc in Applied Cognitive Psychology. My grandfather, a member of Rotary Club himself, has been an inspiration to me. It was him who taught me that volunteering gives you the chance to vote every day about the kind of community and world you want to live in and the opportunity to be part of something bigger than yourself.
As I lived in different countries before, I relocated to Den Haag in 2018 due to my work and fell in love with the city and the country. I’m an automotive engineer working in information security. Following my continuous volunteering journey, I have joined Rotaract club to be able to participate in projects I am passionate about, contribute to the local communities and meet like-minded people.
Born and raised in Turku, Finland. Moved to the Netherlands in 2019 to get into new adventures and see how it is to live in another country. Currently working as an interior engineer in the yacht building industry. As I was looking for like-minded people in my new hometown, Den Haag, I came across Rotaract Club Scheveningen, decided to join their events and meetings, and in the end became a full member. It’s so much fun to be part of this club, while helping others and making the earth a better place to live!
Dutchman with an international mindset. I did my studies in Leiden and now working as a consultant in international transport policy. Learned about Rotaract in 2019 and I am motivated to contribute to local and other goals. An aspect that I think deserves attention as well is doing a part in decreasing distance between the international community and local community in the Hague and in the Netherlands. In to sailing, jiu jitsu (except during lockdown), discussions, cooking and many more.
Born and raised in India, I moved to the Netherlands around an year ago for my work as a software engineer. As I was new in the town and searching for some volunteer activities, I came across Rotaract Scheveningen and ever since there has been no looking back. Being a member not only gives me an opportunity to contribute towards the betterment of the society, but also an opportunity to connect with young like-minded individuals.
Born and raised in Nijmegen. When I was younger I worked as a volunteer in a pop stage where I came into contact with many different people. During the first lockdown, I came into contact with Rotaract through zoom parties. And after the second party. Via de World of Rotaract zoom I came into contact with people from all over the world. In a short time I helped with some international events and this made me want more!
I was born and raised in Minas Gerais, Brazil, where I completed my bachelor’s degree in Tourism. I lived in Cape Verde, Portugal and I am living in the Netherlands since 2014. I am PhD researcher at Erasmus University. Being a Rotaract member is an opportunity to be part of a committed team, doing the best for charity projects worldwide, sustainability awareness and social interaction.
Originally from Romania, I moved to the Netherlands 5 years ago for continuing my studies. I have a BSc in Aeronautical Engineering and currently, I am doing my MSc in Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft. During my high-school years, I was part of Interact in my town and I felt like now it is the time to take a step forward and join Rotaract. As one of my mottos is: “Be the change you want to see in the world!”, I believe that we all together can make an improvement in our community through all the projects we implement.
I’m from a multi-culture background but was born and raised in the Netherlands. After my BCs in Chemistry, I decided to move to another city which was the Hague. I wanted to explore more about the city and be more active in the local community, so my friend introduced me to Rotaract. Being a member gave me the opportunity to help others through various projects, listen to each other’s stories, and most of all have fun!
Coming from a small city in Romania, I moved to the Netherlands pretty recently to continue my studies. I have a bachelor’s in BA Criminology from DMU in Leicester, UK and currently, I am doing an MSc in Comparative Criminal Justice at Leiden University. I became a member of Rotaract to give back to the community, and take part in charitable projects, and it is a great way to meet like-minded people.
Originally from Croatia, came to the Netherlands in 2019 to do Master’s in Strategic Management at Tilburg University. Upon finishing, I wanted to move to another city and I fell in love with the Hague. Currently working in financial planning and analysis in EV industry and like to do kickboxing, photography, and volunteering. As I wanted to connect with like-minded people, contribute to society and work on a lot of fun projects, I decided to join Rotaract!
Born and raised in Bulgaria, I started traveling in my early 20s. I received an LLB at Maastricht University and an LLM at Leiden University. I like to dedicate my spare time to volunteering. Continuing with this passion I started activities with Rotaract immediately after I came to den Haag in 2021. In 2022 I officially became a member. The organization has given me the possibility to be a part of a positive change in the community, as well as to help shape the future of tomorrow.
Born and raised in Suriname 🇸🇷 where during my formative years I received a strong influence from my Indian background as well as influence from Surinamese inclusiveness. In Suriname I have also been an active Rotaractor, at the Rotaract Club or F.R.E.S.H.
In 2020 I moved to the Netherlands 🇳🇱
I also studied Human Resource Management and Management of the Public Sector.
I think the best thing about Rotaract/Rotary is that despite the great variety in background of the members as well as the different cities/countries in which we are active, we all have the same goal.
We work together to make the world a better place.
I am proud to be part of the Rotaract Club Scheveningen.
We are a dynamic, progressive and above all sustainable club!
My name is Bertrand U. born in Burundi (Bujumbura) East Africa but, grew up in different countries.
I’ve always been passionate about social and political development. For this reason I travelled a lot, and work with different organizations in the world in, supporting and promoting democracy on the local, national, and European level.
I joined the Rotaract because I believe we can all make sure we step by step work in building a society where everyone feels at home, and where everyone feels the responsibility and duty of to uplift those in need.
