Hi, I’m Inge. At the moment I’m enrolled in the master’s Social Policy and Public Health. I lived in Groningen before this and, despite my disabilities, I managed to enjoy a student life where I finished my bachelor’s in Social Work at the university of applied sciences. This was partially achieved by lending hands that wanted to aid me when I struggled with my physical disabilities. I have compromised health because my medications. Even though I am pretty assertive, I know it can be difficult to find the right kind of help.

Additionally, it is not always easy to feel ‘different’ and to fight for yourself. This is why the Platform is so important. Because of my degree, I like to think of ways to improve social policies. Inclusivity is a theme that really speaks to me. I also find it important to help others. Combined with my own experiences I really enjoy devoting myself to helping students with a disability feel like a full-fledged student!
