Rémi ter Haar

Rémi ter Haar

“Rémi is a master student in Public International Law, with a focus on climate and maritime law. Sustainability is therefore at the top of her agenda. In her spare time she is busy with giving old items a second life, repairing clothes for housemates or doing odd jobs around the house. She also has a background in French language, art and culture, and has lived for some time in France and Italy. After 6 years, she no longer experiences any real stress from studying: “Student debt? Well, that will work fine, hopefully then … ‘

Rémi is originally from the beautiful Achterhoek, but nowadays you will often find her on the football field at Olympos. In addition to studying, she also thinks it is important that the student is given every opportunity to develop as an individual. Consider, for example, internships and experiences abroad, but also especially sports, art and culture or other activities that are often only considered hobbies. Studying is so much more than just diving into the books; there must certainly be room for extra-curricular activities.

Moreover, studying should be for everyone. As a first generation student at university, she still sees a lot of inequality in opportunities: “Where I often worked several hours behind the cash register in the supermarket after lectures, others had the opportunity to do an internship; that’s where things already go wrong.”
