When I heard about the possibility to become a member of the Board of directors, i decided that this was the one position I really wanted to get. I was elected for this position for three periods, and feel very honored to be selected for all these three periods.
Now looking back I remember how scary the first meeting was. New words, new faces, and people who knew much more than me.
The insight and expertise I am left with after several years as a board member in a large organization like Østfold University College, is for me as important that many of the subjects I took during my years as a student.
So in conclusion I would just encourage those who have the ability; take part in student politics, and enjoy the challenges and opportunities it will bring you.
