The Ability Battle Hackathon 2018 is a perfect opportunity for me to enjoy the experience of being active in the roll of chairperson of an organizational committee. I love to try to truly be myself in this process and I feel free to do so with the support of my fellow students and my professors. I would like to inspire students from all of Europe to follow their dreams and to be the best they can during this amazing experience in the beautiful city of Groningen. Feel welcome to join our initiative and let the battle begin!
Hello, I am Barbara Haverkamp and I will be the vice chair of the daily board. I am responsible for the PR committee and I will keep the overview, together with the other daily board members, of all things that should be done in the upcoming months. I am excited to be part of this committee that will organize an international event specially for students who are interested in human movement, rehabilitation and technological innovations or equipment.
My name is Lonneke and I am 22 years old. This year, I started the Master Human Movement Sciences at the University of Groningen. Before moving to Groningen, I lived in Maastricht were I finished the bachelor Biomedical Sciences with specialization Human Movement Sciences. After four years in the beautiful Maastricht, I thought it was time for something new and ended up in Groningen. Through fellow students I heard about the Ability Battle Hackathon 2018 and went to the first meeting to see what is was about. The idea of bringing international students to Groningen and let them taste the student life in Groningen, convinced me to be involved in the project.
My name is Marlissa Becker and I am 22 years old. I recently started as a master student in Human Movement Sciences. I am mainly interested in the different and complex components of rehabilitation, which is my main specialization. For the Ability Battle Hackathon 2018 I’m part of the daily board in the function of treasurer. I am a big fan of multidisciplinary collaboration and actually quite curious what we can contribute to science if we can all work together.
