Soete Meertens, Bachelor Biology

Hi! I’m Soete, I’m 21 years old, and I am currently in my third year of my bachelor’s in Biology. Science Park is a beautiful place to study, but during my first year I realized that studying is not that easy - especially when you, like me, are in a wheelchair all day. Every student deserves some kind of personal guidance, for whatever reason this may be. I noticed at Utrecht University that there certainly are provisions for students with a disability, but that it wasn’t always clear as to whom you could reach for questions and possible issues. As soon as I heard about a platform being created to facilitate students with a disability, I knew I had to join! I hope to contribute to supporting students like me, so that everyone with a disability can still study without limitations!
