Presenting the committees: IRP

This is the third in a series of articles in which we present all new committees that started in February. We asked everyone to tell something about themselves and to answer two of our 'nice' questions and two of our 'awkard questions'. The IRP Committee will organise next year's International Research Project.

Eveline Mathol (Chairman)

My most common awkard moment is reacting on Facebook posts from random strangers

Hi everyone!

My name is Eveline, I am 20 years old and a third year Bachelor student. I am the chairman of the IRP Committee of 2016-2017! It is an honour to organise the most amazing project of FAECTOR, the International Research Project. Together with my committee we are going to make it an unforgettable experience.

In my free time I like to play hockey or tennis, watch series or cook. I am a secret fan of appelmoes, I eat it with all kinds of food. I can also really enjoy watching the MTV series Ex on the Beach and Geordie Shore. This year, I am most looking forward to the summer vacation. I will be going on a trip to a faraway destination, probably Malaysia. The biggest failure in my university career is forgetting to register for my exams and having to pay 150 euros for administrative charges (and then failing for two of the three exams). I often have awkward moments, the most common one is accidentally reacting on a Facebook post of a random stranger.

Kauther Yahya (supervisor from the board)

Hi everybody, my name is Kauther Yahya and I am the supervisor of the most amazing committee there is, the IRP Committee of course. My favourite karaoke song is Dancing Queen by ABBA. I mostly am looking forward to the IRP trip of this year to Dubai, Tanzania, and Cape Town (jealous yet?). Who is the most sexy FAECTOR member? That's an easy one! Bob Muijs off course! Biggest failure of my life? Not wearing green every day…

Corjan Overbeeke

So you want to know more about me? Well my name is Corjan, I’m a second year student and a proud member of FAECTOR and the IRP Committee. In my free time I play some guitar and listen a lot of music.

What is your favourite karaoke song?

I guess this song.

Who are you secretly a fan of?

This guy.

What was the most awkward moment in your life?

I smashed a piece of one’s teeth at a party with a bottle, not completely my fault, but I get the blame.

Who is the sexiest FAECTOR member?

Rogier Blokland, because he is #kast.

Jovana Milanovic

I'm the best twerker you have ever seen

Hi, my name is Jovana, 21 years old and a second year econometrics student. Dancing is my passion and in my free time I like to dance, shop and drink vodka and sometimes I twerk with Edward. I’m a secret fan of Justin Bieber, that’s why Bas and I are such good friends. I also love Beyoncé, I would die for her. My only hidden talent is that I can drink vodka without getting drunk (originally I’m from eastern Europe, so that’s not really a talent, but more a habit).

I also would like to mention that Edward is the most sexy FAECTOR member and also the best twerker you have ever seen. If you want to try to get a oostblokker drunk, try to give me tequila but not that much because otherwise I will get a ‘worst drunk story’ and I don’t want to get one. I have already embarrassed myself twerking with Edward on the Ski Trip and that was embarrassing enough. Last but not least, don't forget to congratulate me on Facebook if you haven’t done it already (Mitch and Jeroen especially).

Roy Verbaan

Good day fellow FAECTOR members, some of you may know me as Roy Verbaan, a second year Bachelor student in the Dutch econometrics programme. I’m currently 19 years old, although by the time the Estimator Committee posts our introductions, I might already be 20, as they were too busy watching Dumpert Reeten (not looking at you Mitch). This year I’m co-responsible for organising FAECTOR’s greatest project: the International Research Project. We will try our best to make this project even more amazing than previous years. For those of you who are second year students wanting to do an internship, be sure to apply for the IRP! I’m looking forward to the coming one and a half years to see what our project brings. See you soon at a FAECTOR event!

What is your favourite karaoke song?

Either 'Take me home' or 'Live is Life', covered by the Hermes House Band. Both of these remind me of (après)skiing in Austria, which I love doing. I won’t attempt singing either of them however, as one could say I don’t quite have the X-FAECTOR.

What is your hidden talent?

Good one, guess it’s still hiding from me too.

What was the most awkward moment in your life?

Okay, there was this one moment like 4 years ago when I was playing football with a friend of me in the local park. I kicked the ball, missing the target, sending it into the park. However, at that moment, a disabled person was walking his dog in his scootmobiel. The dog got excited about the ball coming towards it and started running at it. The problem was, the dog was lined up, so it dragged the disabled person with it, making the scooter fall over. So there the man was. Lying on the ground. Trying to hold his dog back whilst still sitting on the scootmobiel that was lying on its side. It was quite awkward to say the least. (It wasn’t a completely disabled person though if that makes things anything better, he was able to get back on his scootmobiel again easily.)
