Below you can see the members of the 66th board behind our Study Association 

President - Gert van Leeuwen

Hey! My name is Gert van Leeuwen and I am the President in the CODON board. I am in my second year of biotechnology.

Being active in the committees was a really nice way for me to spend my time. Because of this I wanted to commit myself more to CODON. That is why I joined the board. I joined the board last may as a secretary. I make sure everything is running smoothly and all the tasks are done. I am ready to assist everyone in the board when they need the support. Next to being a board member of CODON, I also like to play football and run a bit through Wageningen. In the rest of my free time I like to listen to music and to watch movies.
