Joy: Hi, I’m Joy, 20 years old and born and raised in Amsterdam, centre of the world trade in the 17th century. While Amsterdam was world leader in trading goods and spices at sea during that time, I made it my duty to trade drinks and snacks at the VSPVU this year. As the chairman and captain of this ship, called the Bar Committee, my goal is to let everybody socialize in a fun way!

Babette: My name is Babette van Rhee and I’m very excited to be a part of the BarCo this year! I’m a third-year psychology student and I am the vice-chairman of the BarCo, which means that I’m our chairman, Joy’s right hand. It’s similar to him being the captain and me being the first mate on a VOC ship!

Adinda: Hi, my name is Adinda and I’m 20 years old. Leiden is the place that I call my hometown, which I’m very proud of because it is an important city during the golden age! I’m the general member of the Barco this year and I joined the committee because I love to have a laugh and get to know new people!

Maxime: Hey, I am Maxime, 19 years old and I live in Castricum, which is close to the sea. In the Golden Age the Netherlands sailed across the ocean to trade. You might know me as the annoying girl who is way to hysterical with typing on her laptop during the lectures, and that’s why I am the secretary of the Barco, I probably type faster than you can talk :D!

Jimmy: Hi, I’m Jimmy. I’m 18 years old and I live in Hoorn, an important city for in the Golden Age! I’m the Barco’s treasurer, meaning I’m in charge of the finances and making sure we don’t go bankrupt ;) Looking forward seeing you at the borrels!

Dori: Hi guys! My name is Dori, promotion-coordinator of the Barco this year! I’m 20 years old and born and raised in the most breathtaking city of the world. Did you know our Amsterdam grew over 160.000 citizens in the Golden Age from 1600 to 1670 (a.d.)?! To celebrate this, and many other things ;), please come and have a drink with us at the Golden Age Borrel Wednesday the 21st of November in the VSPVU-room!
