My name is Stijn Engelen and I have the honour of being your competition commissioner for this academic year. I’m 21 years old and I am doing my second year of biomedical sciences. I was born in Panningen, a little village near Venlo.
Before my Uros career started I played soccer for almost twelve years. It was kind of hard to quit soccer because I enjoyed the matches a lot and I was quite good at it, but I couldn’t keep doing it because of my study. At the moment I am trying to do both long distances and sprinting, so you will see me hopping back and forth from the running group to the technical group. Besides my study I try to work as much as I can at Draagkracht. We carry coffins with dead people at funerals.
I will also be part of the Competition Committee, Uros Magazine Committee and the Alumni committee. So if you’d like to join just let me know!
