We proudly announce the board of Student Party Stimulus 2022/2023. Here you can read all about our members visions and ideas for the coming year.
MSc Social and Behavioral Sciences (Social Psychology)
Hi everyone! My name is Luca. I am and I am doing a Research Master's in Social and Behavioral Sciences. I am doing a board year at Stimulus because I would like to give back to TSB by improving its educational quality.
I advocate improving education. No one should face educational disadvantages due to circumstances outside their control. Every TSB student regardless of their student association, cultural background, or political preference has a shared goal: we all study here to obtain an education. Therefore, as an educational institution, Tilburg University should make as many accommodations as possible to foster this goal.
Why I stand with Stimulus. I understand that everyone differs from each other and that these differences must be accommodated in education for equal educational opportunities, no matter how large or small these differences may be. This is why I chose to do a board year at Stimulus, because Stimulus represents all TSB students.
Joshua van Bokhoven
Vice Chairman & Educational Resource Coordinator & Treasurer
Hello! ;] My name is Joshua, am 23 years old, and currently a third year psychology student. I am doing the ‘Psychological Methods and Data Analysis’ major.
I am currently within the Educational Committee of the Bachelor Psychology. Next year, I will do a board year at Stimulus! I decided to do a board year at Stimulus, so I can help my peers better. While doing a board year, I have more options and opportunities to address comments and complaints from my fellow students.
My focus points will be student well-being and mental health. Stimulus is currently working on a big structural project to increase student mental health, called @ease. This is a collaboration between other student parties and external parties, such as the municipality of Tilburg and GGD HvB Tilburg.
External Relation Coordinator
Hi, my name is Gabi, and I am a third year Bachelor Psychology student. I am a bookworm that also surprisingly enjoys playing various sports, despite usually being terrible at them. I also enjoy listening to music, sometimes on its own and sometimes while doing something more creative like drawing or writing.
I wanted to become a member for Stimulus because I feel like it can be a great opportunity for me to learn new skills while also doing something useful for the student community.
My focus points that I would want to achieve during my time in the council are, firstly, bring the possibility of open book exams into the daily light for more courses (outside the SPPS exams).
Secondly, I also want to improve the situation of early morning and late evening lectures, perhaps by making it possible to follow them also online outside the campus.
Hey there! I’m Ianis and I’m thrilled to introduce myself as one of the five new members of the Stimulus board! 💞💖
I'm a 19-year-old student from Romania, currently in my second year of Bachelor's in Psychology. In my spare time, I am a music nerd. I’m totally the kind of person who is excited to blend sounds and textures, exploring new genres and styles whenever I can.
I joined Stimulus because I want to continue what I started back in high school - helping my peers and making a difference in the lives of those around me. I'm a big believer in the power of networking and creating connections, which is why I'm excited to focus on enhancing contact between students and teachers as part of my role here.
One of my personal goals is to continue the podcast my peers from the previous year started. It is truly a dream-come-true to incorporate another hobby of mine through Stimulus and actually present topics relevant for students and teachers of our faculty. Sharing my ideas, insights, and experiences with all of you seems like something exciting and I can't wait to see what we can accomplish together! 😼💓
BSc Human Resource Studies
Hello there! My name is Arezoo Rezapour, but my friends call me Zoei. I'm a 27-year-old third-year student studying Human Resource Studies. When I'm not busy with schoolwork, I love attending concerts and exploring new music. Feel free to hit me up for some music recommendations anytime!
As an international student, I understand how challenging it can be to navigate everyday life while also studying in a foreign country. That's why I decided to join Stimulus this year to help find solutions to some of the common challenges faced by international students. My main focus will be on the issues of internationalization and the unique challenges it presents.
For instance, even something as seemingly minor as a poorly translated exam can add an extra layer of stress to an already difficult situation. That's where I come in! As a member of Stimulus, I hope to be a strong advocate for international students like myself, ensuring that our voices are heard and our needs are met. Let's work together to make the most of our educational experiences!
