The audit committee is responsible for checking the financial statements of the association! Think of things like going over the books, annual report or financial policy. At the end of every year, we’ll bring out a report on last year that tells the members how the board did financially. We work in independently of the board, this way the members of FAM can get an unbiased view.
Digital Business & Innovation
I am an adventurous traveler and foodie who has a passion for emerging technologies.
Languages: Dutch, English, Javanese, Sranan Tongo & Arabic.
I am one of the Founders of FAM. My parents were not able to attend University due to economical reasons, so I had nobody in my circle who could really tell me about how to cope with University in terms of knowing how to study and knowing the importance of extracurricular activities 📚💼👨💼. Luckily, I met other senior first-generation students who had experienced the same struggle and who shared their trips & tricks with me on how to navigate through University 🚗. Together, we supported each other and they became my academic family at University 👨👩👧👦! This is where my inspiration of FAM came from: to build a community of support & to make everybody feel at home at University so we could all make the best of our academic careers! 👨👩👧👦🏡

Law and Politics of International Security
In my free time I like being outside and am a gym enthousiast.
I grew up in Almere, but I’ve been living in Amsterdam for a while now. If you’re asking about my cultural background? I’m half Moroccan and half Dutch.
– i speak dutch, english, french. Unfortunately my darija (moroccan-arabic) skills are terrible.
Salam! Halllooo! My name is Maxim, and I am taking an active role in FAM as the newsletter editor 🖋️ and part of the audit committee 💶. I’m half Moroccan 🇲🇦 and half-Dutch 🇳🇱. I’m the proud owner of a bachelor’s degree in law and a master’s degree in Law and Politics of International Security. You must be thinking: ”Why the hell is this guy active at FAM”. Well.. at the moment, I’m working on getting a second master’s degree. 🤓 Almost everybody in my circle is from a different cultural background. I feel blessed that I grew up in a diverse environment and am excited to commit myself to a similarly open, diverse and loving environment for everybody at the VU and life in general… That’s why I chose to be a part of FAM!
