Hi there, my name is Lorain Damian!  I am currently doing a master's degree in Air Transport Management. I was born and raised on the tiny island of Aruba located in the Caribbean. I have learned to interact with people from different backgrounds, nationalities, and ethnicities and because of this, I am running as your next Equality and Diversity Officer. 

During my internship at Lufthansa Group, which consisted of a team from different nationalities and ethnicities, I learned to work together, value and respect each and everyone’s opinion and way of thinking to achieve the same goal. This experience will definitely help me interact with students and make sure their voices are heard. 

I believe in creating an environment where equal opportunities are available for everyone regardless of race, ability, gender, religion, or sexuality. For that reason, I want to create more awareness and opportunities for certain groups that are less heard and feel underrepresented within the University’s community. Also, I want to increase the participation of students within the union and provide a range of activities where everyone can be part off.  

My main goal to make sure that students at the Union and the University feel at home and included.
