Robin Hellmich (Treasurer)

Hello everyone! My name is Robin and I will be the treasurer of the 2020/21 student council. I am 22 years old, from Germany, and currently in my third year of Political Science. I am looking forward to working for the students at my faculty and with the other members of the student council. The areas I will be working on include finance, diversity, sexual harassment, and culture. I want the UvA to foster a tolerant and diverse environment, also in times of largely digital education. If you have any idea for improvements or questions, please contact me under


Kaleem Ullah (delegate to the CSR)

Hey hey hey!
I am Kaleem, the delegate to the Central Student Council and a second-year Psychology student. With great titles, comes great responsibility. Being a delegate means I am a part of both the FSR and the CSR and work on file related to both councils. I have two times as many meetings as a general council member and twice the work. Part of my responsibilities is to make sure the FSR and CSR can collaborate with ease and use my position to bring matters of significance from the FSR to the CSR. Most of my week is spent in meetings which along with my education means I don’t get as many free days, but I take pride in the fact that I am working to make UvA a better place!
Feel free to email me at if you have any questions.

Lieve Bastiaan (official secretary / ambtelijk secretaris)

Joshua Meijer (general council member)
Hi! My name is Joshua and this year I am happy to call myself a council member for the FMG. I am 24 years old and currently completing both my bachelors in Communication- and Political Science. This coming year my focus will be on digitalization and double bachelors/masters. Now that corona hasn’t left us yet, digital education is more important than ever. With the participation of students, my goal is to realize an optimal digital environment in which the quality of education is guaranteed. As an expert by experience, I also want to ensure that following two bachelors develops a student instead of hindering him or her, because that still happens too often. Do you have an idea for improving our faculty? Or you simply want to know more about the council? Feel free to email me at!
