UNITECH 2006, Delft University of Technology
" During my Unitech years, I met some of the most talented, bright and kind people in my network whom I still keep in touch with, cherish and call my dear friends. Even after 13 years since I finished the program. To me, Unitech is a big global family, where you are embraced for your unique talents, background and culture, and where you are challenged to bring out the best version of you. They say that your network is your net worth (not just financially, but in all senses of the word) and I cannot agree more.
After organising the GA in 2013 as an AP and later contributing as a speaker at various Symposiums in the past years, I'm delighted that I can now give back to our community in the role of UAA President. Our vision is to connect and provide value to alumni from all generations, so we truly engineer a network of professional possibilities. Let's get it on and bring it to the next level!"

"From the moment I started my Unitech experience, I simply and absolutely loved it! I loved it because it was intense, challenging in many expected and unexpected ways and because it was a lot of fun. I also loved it because it gave me a unique chance to exchange ideas, theories and dreams with an incredible number of inspiring people, with whom I was sharing an unbelievable energy.I came to think of this energy as the "Unitech spirit“ and it was always clear to me that I wanted to do my part to keep this spirit alive also after my graduation. And what better way to do this than to dedicate some of my own energy to Unitech!As Vice President of the UAA I will do my best to keep the spirit up by contributing to the UAA in general and especially by helping to turn our vision of Unitech as a strong professional network into reality."

"My UNITECH experience started in 2017 in Lyon, and has been full of experiences. As the Media Representative of our year, I was able to bring to reality projects which I believed that made UNITECH stronger. The case with Buhler in Milano and the internship with Hilti in Liechtenstein allowed me to grow personal and professionally, as well as the interaction with the other participants and the whole UNITECH network. UNITECH has brought many valuable experiences to me, and taking on the Communication Officer of the UAA is a way to give back.Making the UAA stronger, enabling meaningful interactions across our diverse network, in a constantly evolving world, is a challenge that I am excited to take on. I look forward to work with the rest of the UAA council and the Local & Regional chapter Coordinators to keep the UAA members engaged!"

"As a UNITECH student I have been able to meet very talented people, gain international experience and create unforgettable memories. UNITECH has broadened my world, played a key role in creating unique learning opportunities and paved the way for my job at a corporate partner. The UAA enables members to stay engaged and keep the UNITECH mindset, even after finalizing the programme. This is only possible due to dedication of time and effort. Therefore, I decided to run for the position of financial officer, to actively contribute to sustaining and growing the network. As a financial officer, I want to enable members of the UAA to organise meetings and events, locally and globally, to increase the value that we get out of the UNITECH network. I look forward to working with you! "

"My UNITECH journey began in 2014 and I’m happy to say it hasn’t finished yet. During my exchange at ETH, my Internships in Germany and Austria and the whole UNITECH year, not only I had the great chance of developing but also I got in touch with some of the brightest and inspiring people I have ever met."
It’s the UNITECH people that motivated me to not let the UNITECH Journey finish: this is why I decided to engage first as Local Chapter Coordinator in Milano and now as Local Unitech Chapter Coordination Officer (LUCCO). As LUCCO I work together with Local UNITECH Chapters as well as Regional Groups all around the world.
By supporting and catalyzing the communication among UNITECH alumni, I want to strengthen the bonds within the network and make interactions as easy as possible to keep the UNITECH spirit alive!"

"The unitech experience was an incredible one for me and I believe there is so much potential in the alumni association network. Through working at Bühler, I experienced how powerful and useful this network can be in supporting, guiding and just being great friends in a new place. The highlight of the UAA, for me, is that it brings people together, physically and digitally, to exchange ideas and spark new innovations. I have found it so inspiring to meet alumni from a variety of different years, through different events and I want to ensure I continue that, particularly through the annual symposium. I am very excited to be working with the UAA council and everyone in the network to continue to make the alumni experience as enjoyable, inspiring and impactful as possible and I look forward to taking on board your ideas this year. See you at the symposium! "
