It’s time to meet our  event manager Aisha Weerts!

Tell us Aisha, what gets you out of bed in the morning?
The thought of learning something new every single day! My personal goal is to learn at least one new skill per year, I mean, how awesome is that? By the time you’re 60 you have this big toolbox of skills!

How would you describe yourself in three words?
Ambitious, autonomous, adventurous.

What’s your favourite part of being a TEDx Maastricht team member?
The blissful feeling on the day itself. You walk through the crowd and can hear the music and see the videos, lights, acts and speakers all come together for our audience. I’d love to think that by organising this event we contribute to changing someone’s way of thinking or provide them with different insights or perspectives. Those little lightbulb moments that can change someone’s life.

If you could have any superpower what would it be and why?
Easy; unlimited eating without gaining weight or getting ill. I love food.

You can wake me up for… My motorcycle lessons! I love riding and cannot wait to own my own bike. When talking about it, I notice a lot of women feel intimidated by (the thought of) taking up such a hobby, but I feel it’s empowering to master such a skill.
