Meet The Team

The board of 2021 – 2022, an official third generation of Ambrosia

Nikkie Mandigers

External Affairs (Chair Person)

My name is Nikkie from the Netherlands. I’m a student of the bachelor’s International Development Management with a major in Rural Development and Innovation. My ambition is to strive for a more inclusive world which suits my boardship at Ambrosia. I have a wide range of experience in studies, and during this journey I learned how important it is to experience a warm welcome. My passions include almost everything in nature, cooking and being active! So during my boardship, I aim to involve members of Ambrosia and external parties in different activities to experience different cultures and make life-long friendships.

Saeedulkheir Haiderbhai


Hey! I’m Saeed from Tanzania, a student of International Business in Food and Flowers in Van Hall Larenstein. I really like being social and make new friends. That is why I felt Ambrosia is a perfect platform that connects studies and social life. I decide to join not only to make new friends from all over the world but also to make it happen for all the students who come from different backgrounds. I’m looking forward to be a part of this family where I, along with my colleagues, could organize beautiful gatherings, events and parties where students have the best of their times and make memories to cherish forever! 

Maike Schnelle


My name is Maike and I’m from Germany. I study International Development Management, majoring in Rural Development for Innovation at Van Hall Larenstein. I love to travel, meeting new people from all over the world, and learning about their culture. In the first weeks after my arrival, I experienced what Ambrosia is doing to help international students to settle in easily and when I heard that they are looking for new board members, I decided to join them. By joining the board of Ambrosia I want to give other international students the chance of support and a community for their time here in the Netherlands.

Marvelous Adventure! That is what we are aiming for this year. Good study program, fun social life, etc...
