Hi everyone! My name is Merel Bruinsma and I will be your Commissioner of Internal Affairs this year! I am currently in my third year of Communication & Life Sciences. This first semester I'm following courses on Infectious Diseases, a life science minor at the WUR. It's very fun and quite challenging! In my free time I enjoy climbing, cooking, reading and crochet and I like to spend time with my friends. In my board year, I will be the link between all of Ipso's committees and the board, and I will help facilitating the committees. I want to make sure that the committees communicate well and that they can turn to each other for help whenever necessary. If you need help, please contact me! I want to make sure you will enjoy Ipso as much as I do, and I look forward to meeting you all this year!
