The podcast committee is a new start-up by our association! It entails podcasts, short interviews, editing and creating visual and audio content to stress the importance of the key topics that FAM discuss.
Odi Odi 👋🏾, my name is Maryse Vorm I'm 20 years old and recently joined the FAM association as part of the Podcast . I'm currently in my third year of the bachelor Pharmaceutical Sciences 💉🧪👩🏾🔬at the VU.
I am of Surinamese 🇸🇷descent and lived in the amazingly beautiful city Paramaribo (SU tek yu big up 🇸🇷❤️) from my 9th till my 18th, up to when I moved back to NL to study in Amsterdam.
When I just moved back to NL I made lots of friends outside of school, but I was really longing for friends and a warm nest at uni. That’s why I decided to join FAM where I’ve found friends I could also relate to academically, because we all know the struggle is very real!📚🥸 I also think that dutch uni’s have lots of work to do when it comes to Diversity & Inclusivity, and within FAM I will also be committed to making that highly necessary change!🤎✊🏾

I joined FAM because I loved the idea of being part of a family. I think one of the hardest steps for me when I chose to study abroad was the fact that I had to be away from my family. Homesickness was something that gave me some panic attacks in the past. When I heard about the FAM association’s goal to support students and create mini families in order to have someone to motivate and be near you, I knew that this is the type of association that I would like to be in. What’s more, FAM is the type of association that doesn’t make you feel strange or feel that you don’t belong in a group just because you are different.
