University College Fryslân Foundation
In 2019, we started the University College Fryslân Foundation in order to provide everyone with access to UCF’s BSc ‘Global Responsibility & Leadership’, regardless of financial background. UCFF acquires funding opportunities to students from anywhere in the world.

Throughout my career and personal life, I’ve always attempted to put my organisational skills into practice for organisations that are creating social impact. I’m inspired by the ambition of the UCF Foundation to provide equal opportunities for students all over the world and to stimulate diversity in the classroom as a basis for inclusive leadership.

Inclusion and diversity have been driving forces in my professional and personal life. I feel proud of being part of this ambitious project, working together with inspiring women and contributing my expertise to achieve UCFF’s goal of providing access to education with a societal impact to young leaders around the world.
For the UCF Foundation, I manage the website and help organise events. I think raising money for scholarships is a beautiful purpose. As the youth has the future, we should try and make sure education is achievable for students from all layers of society and all parts of the world.
I truly believe that education should be accessible to all and that the UCF Foundation is a step in achieving this. It’s so important to create an education space that is welcoming for everyone with inclusion and diversity at its roots. For the UCF Foundation, I manage their Social Media and Website. Taking care that our engagement is constant and our information is up to date.
Since October 2019 I have been working as an intern with the UCF Foundation on the goal of making university education more accessible for everyone regardless of financial or geographical background. Being one of the pioneers of the bachelor program Global Responsibility and Leadership myself, I was eager and passionate to make my own study program more inclusive as well as providing more equal opportunities for students also for the Global South to participate in this unique study.
