Degree Subject: European Law
Graduation Year: 2020
About Manuela: I am a first year European Law student at Maastricht University which is situated in a beautiful city on the southern tip of the Netherlands. Currently I am a member of the Permanent Delegation of the United Nations Student Association at my university. I speak German, Spanish and English at native level, I am currently learning Dutch and I will be taking an intensive Mandarin course in Beijing this summer.
I enjoy taking part in challenging events, recently I competed in a Hackathon in collaboration with The Hague Institute for Innovation of Law. Guided by the belief that justice should be accessible to everyone, we delivered a pitch to empower women in the rural areas of Zimbabwe by creating a support system for those seeking microfinancing to build their business.
After my Bachelor I will go on to complete the GDL and hopefully begin my path towards becoming a solicitor in a commercial law firm.
Favourite thing about Bright Network: My favourite thing about Bright Network is the amazing opportunity it gives students to explore all the information they need in one platform. It is an invaluable tool that caters to individual needs and creates a supportive environment.
