Message: Hello, I’m Jonathan, from Belgium. I am a bachelor student in Bioscience engineering majoring in Agronomics at the KULeuven. As a kid, I grew up in the middle of the fields. Since then my interest for agriculture grew and was fed by the proximity of those fields and
pastures. My other passions are dancing (rock ’n’ roll, waltz, folk, a bit of salsa…), singing, horse-riding, acting, trekking. I really enjoy a simple walk in the nature.
Since 2015 I am a member of IAAS. The most appealing things to me were the international and the agricultural side of the Association. After a first year as simple member, I became Local Treasurer of IAAS Leuven in 2016. This position allowed me to learn a lot on how to
get subsidies, how to make a budget for events, for a year. But as right-hand of the Local Director I also learned how to promote IAAS to different publics and how to represent IAAS in the different partnerships on local level. Having participated to various international events in my second year, it allowed me to start this year (as Local Director of IAAS Leuven) with a real knowledge of what IAAS was about. Since then I have been actively sharing this
knowledge and amazing feeling!
As Regional Finance Coordinator, my mission is to help committees improving their financial situation, giving the committees the opportunity to expand their activities. However, first, an overview of the financial situation of each country will be established through better communication with the National and Local teams. Among several projects I would support, I am glad to work on the global project for the Development Fund.

Message: Hello everyone! My name is Siti Vanessa Fransiska Makapuan or just Vanessa in short. I am happy to serve IAAS as the External Relation Coordinator for IAAS Asia Pacific. The first time I discovered IAAS was on 2013 during my first year in my college and placed in external department of my local committee in Indonesia. My activities in external department made me learn many things. One of them is that making a good relation with other institution, organizations, even potential sponsors is a key point of the growth of IAAS.

I've just finished my study in Veterinary Medicine Faculty of Bogor Agricultural University and having a final program to get the veterinarian authority to diagnose your pet. My major field is not reducing my curiosity and excitement through the agriculture updates. Moreover IAAS is a place full of positive vibes with remarkable students and I am really happy with the atmosphere.

I'm really looking forward to work with my team and develop the partnership of IAAS Asia Pacific! Good day!

Message: I've been an IAAS member since freshman, at first, the seniors explained well about the purpose and aims of IAAS in agriculture and related sciences.
Then, I knew that I'd found a new family that has the same goals with me. I was trained in the external department in my local comittee, then I challenged more myself by joining as a board member of communication in IAAS World. And now here I am, aim to enhance the communication within Asia-Pacific country members as Regional Communication Coordinator.

All Hail IAAS!

Message: Am a passionate agriculturalist. IAAS has opened doors for mW to meet like minded students and professionals from all over the world. It has opened avenues for leadership and other forums for interactions and communication that I never knew existed.
Since I joined IAAS in 2015, the journey has been awesome and am grateful for all the opportunities offered by the latter. My plan for IAAS is to see that each passionate young mind that is agriculturally ~biased gets the opportunity to meet same~minded individuals, interact and exchange ideas on how to attain their goals. I also want to see a better and strongly bonded student~led organisation recognised by even the furthest farmer in the villages up to even the senior most leader in any institution or organisation.
My hobbies include swimming, reading, travelling to new places, meeting new people and making friends, making others smile and charity/volunteering.
