The VIth board of U.L.S.V. Amino, under the motto “Sicut Nemo Umquam Fuit“, was constituted as follows;

Auke Heerdink

Hey, I’m Auke and I’m currently a third-year MLS student and I am the chair of our beautiful association U.L.S.V. Amino this year. I have been living in Utrecht since the beginning of this year, but I am originally from Ermelo, a village in the Veluwe. We’re currently very busy making the backyard summer-proof so that we can chill there too. In my spare time I like to sail, cook, read or hang out with friends. In the past year I have discovered my love for pool so don’t hesitate to hit me up for a game of pool. I’m also a member of the Almanac taskforce where we’re currently working very hard on a beautiful book of our first lustrum year (which is this year).


Andressa Pelster José

Hi everyone, I am Andressa, and I am the secretary for the VIth board of U.L.S.V Amino! I am 22 years old and I am currently half way through my Bachelor as I am in my third year of MLS. I am originally from Brasil, but I am glad I came all the way to the Netherlands to find the best study and association that there is, where it feels like home. A little bit of info about myself is that I play volleyball, I like to cook and bake and I am a bookworm, but feel free to ask me anything else you would like to know. I am really enthusiastic about this year and what is to come for Amino!


Lucas Siero

Hello there, my name is Lucas and I am treasurer for the VIth board of U.L.S.V. Amino. I am already in my fifth year of MLS at 22 years old and for over four years long enjoyed my time at amino. Overvecht is where I live now, but I am born and raised in Maarssen. Outside of the study I am the part of the TraktaCie and Almanac Taskforce and like to spend my free time on fencing, writing, chess, cycling, my fishes, my vinyl records and last, but definitely not least, my friends. I must also inform you of my unhealthy love for anything prehistoric that sometimes gets rivalled by my love for this beautiful study association.


Vice chair and commissioner of educational affairs
Linde Lanting

Hi! My name is Linde and I am the vice chair and the commissioner of educational affairs of the VIth board of U.L.S.V. Amino. I am 20 years old and currently a third year MLS student. Before I came to study in Utrecht, I lived in Enschede. I like to spend my free time with friends, go out, cook, and see new places. Once a week I try to do gymnastics, but unfortunately I can only train about once a month instead. Together with my fellow board members, I am often found on PoeMonday, come find me there (or on an average day in the Aminoroom 😉 )!


Vice secretary and commissioner internal affairs
Maira Kim

Hi!! My name is Maira, I’m 21 years old and I’m in my third year of MLS. I am vice-secretary and commissioner of internal affairs (also mamamino) of the VIth board of U.L.S.V. Amino. My home-home is in Haarlem but in the summer of 2022 I’ve moved to the Cambridgelaan in Utrecht. Next to the study, i like to sew, paint and crochet, but I’m also always down for a drink with friends. I can’t wait to see what next year has in store for us!!


Vice treasurer and commissioner external affairs
Max van Baalen

Hey there, my name is Max and I am vice treasurer and commissioner of external affairs for the VIth board of U.L.S.V. Amino. Last year I finished my bachelor MLS and I am now attending the Master Neuroscience and Cognition. The way proteins and molecules eventually are responsible for higher cognitive functions of the brain intrigues me most.

I live in Utrecht for over 2 years now, and I am originally from Zeewolde. My hobbies are making music, doing sports, sailing and having a good time with my friends. I like to meet new people so if you see me around, let’s drink a beer together!
