Hi, my name is Yannick Pichardo, I am currently the External Affairs Officer of the 33d VESTING board. I’m 22 years old and am originally from the United States and lived 13 years in Mexico. Currently following the Master of Econometrics and Operations Research, in my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and playing soccer on Sundays. Lijst Calimero focuses on future-oriented education. It challenges academic education that is linked to academic research, but also stimulates the development of skills and prepares students for the labour market. Students must be stimulated to follow their own interests so that they can get the most out of their student time. During my years in Groningen, I noticed that a higher level of flexibility within your study time is something that most students want. This is precisely the reason why I stand behind Lijst Calimero.
