Who we are

Let us introduce who we are! We are your mymaastricht team, and we’re here to help you get settled in the city. The current team consists of:

Thomas

Thomas here, a passionate advocate of transparent information and functional digital systems. In 2014 I was given the opportunity to combine my passion with helping students by starting the mymaastricht project as part of my work at Maastricht University. By now, I am working as head of the department of StudentenStad, providing solutions to various issues that students face in Maastricht. In my free time, I enjoy doing sports such as riding my bike through the beautiful surroundings of Maastricht or work on complex challenges, but likewise enjoy a good beer. I always fancy a good debate on topics ranging from politics to the meaning of our existence and try to find joy in the little things in life.

Kees

Kees is the developer of mymaastricht. His job is to make sure the site keeps up and running and deliver the best user experience for you. Kees has been involved in this project since late 2014 and has evolved the platform to how it looks like right now. Next to seeing coding as a fun hobby, Kees also utilizes his hands on the keyboard in a musical way. In his spare time, he likes to smash a good ball on a tennis field if it doesn’t go over the fence or against the net.

 

Isabel

Isabel Camps is a Dutch graphic designer based in Maastricht with a passion for graphic design and illustration. Sheis responsible for the visual aspect for My Maastricht, making sure that everything fits beautifully within the corporate identity, and creating everything from logos to birthday cards. Her work is gorgeously colourful, fun and playful and represents a kind of “open minded-ness”. In her spare time she loves to decorate her own life whether its interior, fashion or photography. She can’t get enough of plants, cats and cheese. To see more of her work you can see her website https://www.isabelcamps.nl

María

María is our new Promotion Coordinator and also a Law student at Maastricht University! Her curious and insightful ideas will be shaping all of Mymaastricht social media. She loves exploring new places and, when a little homesick, cooking some Spanish recipes!
You can always count on her when trying to settle down in Maastricht and cope with new beginnings, since she is also behind our DMs and WhatsApp.
Lastly, if you are a TikTok user, stay tuned for her future steps!

Ronja

I’m Ronja, the content coordinator of mymaastricht.nl. I originally come from Finland but have spent a good deal of my life living all over the world. As the content coordinator I write content onto the website and answer all the questions you may have about life in Maastricht. You might also see me at some of our events.

Besides working at MyMaastricht, I study medicine and international business and work as a group fitness instructor at UM Sports. My free time is spent doing a lot of sports from lacrosse to running and travelling on every chance I get. You can most likely find me at UM Sports or chilling at one of the cozy cafés of Maastricht.

Orla

I’m Orla, I’m the social media manager for mymaastricht. As well as managing the social media, I will be the person replying to your messages on Instagram and WhatsApp! I’m an Irish Master’s student studying Media Studies: Digital Cultures.

Outside of mymaastricht, I love playing music, travelling and reading. I also love Irish history so if you ever want to learn an unreasonable amount of trivia on Ireland’s history, let me know!
