Anouk Stevens – Secretary 

Hello KNUSsers and other website readers! I was asked to write a short description of who I am – so, here we go!

My name is Anouk Stevens, I am 21 years old, and I will be the secretary of KNUS this year. Although I was born in Arnhem, I lived my entire life in Heteren – a small town that nobody knows and that is located close to the Rijn, perhaps you know the McDonalds next to it. To fully immerse myself in student culture and to make board life a bit easier I recently moved to Nijmegen.

During my first few weeks as secretary I found out that my fellow board member Daniela and I share a love for my favourite musician Hozier! Next to listening to his music I spend my time hiking, reading, drawing and painting. I recently picked up oil painting. Although this medium can be quite demanding, I love immersing myself when painting a portrait of someone or something. It might not come as a surprise that my favourite art discipline is visual arts. My favourite artists are John Singer Sargent, John William Waterhouse, Claude Monet and Gustav Klimt. The art meetings are one of my favourite KNUS activities because they push me to try new things together with other members!
