I am a first year bachelor student of Human Movement Sciences at the University of Groningen. I am originally from The Netherlands, but I have lived in Sweden for 8 years and studied a year abroad in Scotland. Growing up, I have always been a very competitive football player and now have taken on a new challenge, triathlon. Challenging myself is one of the reasons I wanted to participate in organising the ABH 2018. Organising such a big, international event also allows me to gain experience in the field and work together with like-minded people. Furthermore, with my international background, it gives me the possibility to further develop my professional network.
I am Tom Panneman, 19 years old and a first year student Human Movement Sciences in Groningen. Since a couple of months I am living in Groningen as well. Moreover I like to sport and to play music. I want to participate in organizing the Ability Battle Hackathon 2018 event in order to broaden my horizon in terms of Human Movement Sciences. Furthermore, I would like to meet the other international students and talk about their experiences with the study. I am looking forward to it.
I was asked to help out in the organization of the Ability Battle Hackathon 2018 by one of the professors of Human Movements Sciences Groningen. I agreed to help out, but I had not thought of a function beforehand. We met up with an initial group of students. I signed to help out with PR, since I like to try new things. Since I have never done anything PR-related, I think this is a perfect opportunity to develop myself. I hope to see you all at the first Ability Battle Hackathon in Groningen!
