I am Robert Broers, 22 years old and originally from Roermond, located in the southern part of the Netherlands. I study business economics at the Avans University of Applied Sciences in 's Hertogenbosch, but have never left Tilburg since I originally started business economics at Tilburg University.
Since I was only 10 weeks old, our family has been travelling and living around the world. I was born in Ede, but moved to Mexico for my fathers work. We lived there for 6 years and my little brother was even born there. After our adventure in Mexico, it was time for a new challenge: France. I have had the opportunity to enjoy the French culture for two years, when our parents decided that they wanted to move back to the Netherlands, but even there I had international influences, as my mother is German from origin. Besides these experiences, I have always been travelling around the world for leisure. Canada, America, Australia, Indonesia, Thailand and Burma (Myanmar) are just a few of the countries I have been lucky enough to visit. I guess you can say that travelling is one of my passions.
During upcoming year, I wish to further professionalize ESN the Netherlands and ESN AISBL. Big steps have been taken last year, but there is room for even more improvement. Also, I would like to see a financially stable ESN the Netherlands in combination with successful national events, like ESNow and our newly set up national activity, the Erasmus Sound Festival.
