Hello everyone, my name is Elke Gehoel, I am eighteen years old and as per September the 10th, I will be the new Chairwoman of the Ipso Facto Board. At this moment I am in my second year of Communication and Life Science. I was born and raised in a small village close to Eindhoven. That automatically menas that I am also a huge fan of carnaval which I haven’t missed once these past eighteen years. In my free time I love to go horseriding, traveling to other countries or chilling with my friends. Moving to Wageningen was a pretty big step for me since I had never lived all by myself. The transition became a lot easier thanks to my great roommates who will always dance with me while doing the dishes and my awesome friends, whom I can talk to anytime. I go to my hometown every weekend to go see my parents, boyfriend and friends, and to work in a restaurant as a waitress. Last year, I joined a committee called the Congrescie! We organised an educational congress for students. I loved doing something besides my study and contributing to the study association and its members. That was when I decided to apply for a function on the board. While operating in my new function, my ultimate goal is to improve our beautiful study association. I hope to see you around!
