Ruby De Witte

My name is Ruby, 19 years old, born in Tilburg and raised in Oisterwijk. In high school I chose to follow bilingual education which gave me the opportunity to travel and experience new cultures and feel comfortable with the English language. Studying International Business has been built on this and has thus far, proven successful. I moved to Maastricht to live on my own at 17 years old which has made me more independent and ready to take on more responsibility.

I joined SCOPE during the first recruitment period in my first year, so I've been in SCOPE almost as long as I've been in Maastricht. The first year I was part of the internal committee of the M&M pillar. Apart from co-organizing social events I was also really involved in the other social aspects of the association. I'm a regular at the weekly Preuv nights and the SCOPE parties.

In my first year SCOPE has played an important role in my social development and has truly brought me out of my shell. I was super motivated to join SCOPE for a second year, and I was ready to take on more responsibility which is why I joined for pillar board. As a social internal for the M&M pillar I had to deal with both very familiar, but also a lot of new situations. Leading a committee has turned out to be very successful in my opinion, and I think together we organized some great events on an even greater scale!

So next up is a full-time board year. I'm very excited to take on even bigger events, more colleagues, and more responsibility. We've had some amazing parties already and it's going to be a fun challenge to come up with even more creative and crazy ideas to improve what we have. It will also be important for SCOPE to improve our Alumni database. We acknowledge they are very valuable to us and we would like to incorporate them more into SCOPE. I'm looking forward to an exciting year with lots of amazing events, teachable moments, and fun!
