He was previously a board member at student union ASVA and a member of the central student council at his university. Julia van der Haring (also 23) will become a general board member. She is also studying political science, but at Radboud University Nijmegen. This year, she worked at the union’s secretariat and was active for the PvdA’s youth organisation, the Young Socialists.
