Hi! I’m Hannah, the chair of the organizing committee of 2018. Currently I’m in my third year of medicine in Groningen. During the Summer School Ageing Brain last year, I was responsible for the Social Programme. This has been one of the best experiences of my time as a student in Groningen, it made me proud of our University and the beautiful city we live in. I’m looking forward to show this to you all in the summer of 2018! Next to this committee I am an active member of the medical study association where I will be organizing the abroad trip for students. Furthermore, I like to play field hockey and party with my friends. I hope to see you all in Groningen this summer so we can show you the best student city of the Netherlands!
