I'm Yasmina Mahali and I am a 23 year old second year Security Studies student. I am originally from Belgium but have lived abroad for most of my life. Being this year's president was a step out of my comfort zone but very quickly I realized that this was one of the best decisions i've made. Looking forward to meet all of our members and continue to provide the best experience for our members!
Hi there! My name is Michelle and I am a 24 year old, third year student of Security studies from Rijnsburg. The past years I have learned a lot when I was part of the committees and met some great people at Custodia. Therefore I am pretty excited to be Secretary this year.
I am Marnix Tissing, 24 years old and 2nd Year Treasurer at L.S.A. Custodia, currently studying MSc Crisis & Security Management. I oversee the financial operations at the association, in addition supporting my fellow board members in day to day operations.
