In 'Welcommitees!' we present all new committees that started in September. We asked everyone to tell something about themselves and to answer three questions about their committee members. When they are not taking their time in snapchatting or winning the committee battles, the Marketing Committee is responsible for all the behind the scenes editing and designing of promotional material, gadgets and merchandise. Also, a big head start is being made in designing the yearly Almanac, which will be even better than the year before. But, who are these creative masterminds?
Suddenly he started talking to me, at least that’s what I thought. So I replied and he looks at me really confused, that’s when I realized he was actually on the phone
My name is Meiyee (I can already hear you struggling to pronounce it, no worries you’re not the only one.), I’m 18 years old and a happy member of the MarCo. In my spare time I like to go out with my friends, watch (a lot of) Netflix and sing along to high school musical. But don’t be fooled, I’m can also be really serious. This year so far has been amazing and I’m sure it’ll become even better. We’re going to work very hard to provide you amazing, green, very FAECTOR gadgets and a beautiful Almanac. And most importantly have a lot of fun while doing it.
The most embarrassing thing I ever experienced? I probably already banned it out of my memory, but I do have another story for you. So I was listening to music while I was waiting for my bus at the bus stop and some guy sat down next to me. Suddenly he started talking to me, at least that’s what I thought. So I replied and he looks at me really confused, that’s when I realized he was actually on the phone. The bus arrived after 3 minutes, the longest 3 minutes of my life.
Well, I appreciate you took the time to read this. Have a nice day!
(...) like that time when I went all the way to Brussels to attend the Imagine Dragons concert, and fell asleep halfway through. Oops
The name is An, Ankie An. I am a second year econometrics student and I am a member of the great Marketing Committee! I am confident that it is going to be a hell of a year, filled with laughter and regret. I have the tendency to fall asleep somewhere everywhere, like that time when I went all the way to Brussels to attend the Imagine Dragons concert, and fell asleep halfway through. Oops. I was a member of the Freshmen Committee last year, and since I wrote down that I could have introduced myself as James Bond, I thought I would do it this year. Consistency is key after all.
Edit: I PROMISED DAAN NO SUCH THING.
Hasta la vista, baby!
Hi Everyone! My name is Sophia Hummelman and this year I was lucky enough to make it into the greatest, juiciest, cutest, funniest, spiciest, prettiest,… a.k.a. the BEST committee of FAECTOR. This year we’ll put our creative little minds together and make lots of fun merchandise for you and fulfill everyone’s craziest poster dreams.
Once you get to know me a little better you will notice I’m very passionate about chicken nuggets (I must really like you if I share one with you)
Once you get to know me a little better you will notice I’m very passionate about chicken nuggets (I must really like you if I share one with you), actually just food in general. I also have a secret love for Latin music, which is why I go to Zumba every Monday evening.
It was hard to pick an embarrassing story…(this pretty much sums up my whole life). But one time at the end of a party I was looking for my bike and couldn’t find it anywhere. I was convinced I had looked everywhere and that it was stolen(my bike is white and pretty hard to miss), I got home about 5 hours later. Next day my dad came to visit and after having dinner we drove past the place of the party. You’ll never guess what we found there… I’ve never heard my dad laugh so hard.
Dear beloved FAECTORians, my name is Martijn, most of the time abbreviated to just Erp. I’m a first years econometrics student and part of the most awesomest committee of FAECTOR, MarCo. Next to FAECTOR I’m also a member at Skadi, but although my heart is ‘korenblauw’, CMYK 220.127.116.11 is my favourite colour. I like my ice creams consisting of 3 scoops with 2 different tastes, 2 scoops of chocolate and 1 arbitrary scoop.

I want this MarCo to become the most legendary MarCo to have ever existed. We are already planning a concert in the Ziggo Dome where MarCo Borsato will perform his famous song ‘Today is green’. We’re also going to make sure that everything you can think of will be available in green with our beautiful logo on it (did anyone say laser-engraved banana’s?).
I’d already forgotten most of it the next day, but my floorpizza the night after our analysis exam was quite embarrassing judging from what I heard. I’m already looking forward to receiving a bucket or a trash can for my birthday (it better be green).
That concludes this exercise.
Hi, I am Daan, and I currently study Econometrics and Operations Research at Erasmus University Rotterdam. On top of that I am part of the best committee of FAECTOR, MarCo. My favorite animal is not a husky. My favorite color was blue and it still is, but I also love green. My bodyspell is: The key to killing two birds with one stone is using a large stone and small birds.

Winning the committee battles will be fun, so I can’t wait for that. Furthermore, I would like to improve my Photoshop and InDesign skills to be able to create better quality memes of our lecturers. Lastly, I can’t wait for the atje for the sfeer that Ankie promised me.
First of all, I have a story about the PENGUIN weekend. There was this weird guy who started to barf, and as I was the only one around, I had to help him. It was really nasty, so we gave him a trashcan for his birthday to help him the next time he barfs. I hope he learned from his mistakes, but I heard he actually has a reputation as barfking. This brings me to my next story. We have a wannabe gangster in our committee who also has a little reputation of creating a straatplakaat, and he chose the floor of the student hotel. The only thing I have to say to him is that you must not yell me.
Thanks for reading, and have a nice day.
Dear members of the beloved Faculty Association of Econometrics & Operations Research,
Most of you might know me, some of you might not. My name is Mateusz and I am the IT & Marketing Officer of the 51st board this year. I come from the south of Netherlands, Noord-Brabant, from a nice vibrant city called Bergen op Zoom or Krabbegat during carnaval (this year from 25-28 februari). Next to all my busy board tasks I am also the supervisor of the ‘Marketing Committee’ during the year.
There they left, leaving me standing there with my High-Five hand hanging and nobody near to give it back
Last year I was the chairman of the first Marketing Committee and that is why I am very excited to see if we can make even greater and more merchandise and gadgets this year, design shinier posters, flyers, booklets and other promotional material than ever before, promote FAECTOR better than ever and even have time left to be responsible for the greatest publication of FAECTOR: The Almanac. Of course last year’s edition can’t be topped, but we will try our best at making such an amazing piece again this year.
I have enough embarrassing stories to tell, but this one popped into my mind first: Once I was walking from Kralingse Zoom to the C-building for a lecture or something, when at the entrance of the EUR a guy came walking towards me and calling for me (at least that is what I heard). He asked me how I am and how ‘the project’ was going, however I could not remember the guy or any project I needed to work on. So I told him that everything was good and the project was ok, whilst walking up to him and wanting to give a hand, only to find out that he was talking to the guy who stood behind me. There they left, leaving me standing there with my High-Five hand hanging and nobody near to give it back.
Who is the cutest freshman?
Who is the barfking?
