Nikki van de Rijdt
Taking on this one and a half year adventure with our team and together achieve our ultimate goal: winning the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. This is, in a nutshell, why I wanted to participate in Solar Team Twente. My name is Nikki van de Rijdt, 22 years old and originally from the province of Brabant, from a town called Maarheeze. After completing my bachelor Chemical Science and Engineering at the University of Twente, I wanted to further develop myself and my interests. I wanted to use my passion for durability and technology and combine this with event organization. Which is why I will coordinate all events this edition for Solar Team Twente from my position within the communication team. Furthermore my goal is to get Solar Team Twente integrated in the education programmes in all layers of education, to be able to create enthusiasm for durability and technology amongst the next generation. I am part of a fantastic team and I am extremely excited to tackle the challenges we will face together this edition!
