Hyun Visser

I am Hyun Visser and elite sports coordinator of the Faculty of Applied Social Science and Law. After having completed the programme social work and services myself, I have been working within the social work programme as a teacher and student counselor since 2013. As a child I was always involved with football. In the end I played amateur football at VVSB in the second highest amateur league. After that I was a football coach at the youth academy.

Because of my social interests I then set up a foundation in Indonesia (COP Indonesia). Students do minor development work in the inland of Indonesia where I see time and again how sport can be a means of connecting with each other. Sport makes it easier for people to make contact, learn to work together and deal with hierarchy and discipline. Nowadays I do fitness and kickboxing for sports myself.

Sport quote

“In the end, it's extra effort that separates the winner from second place. It takes desire, determination, discipline and self-sacrifice. Put all these together, and even if you don't win, how can you lose?"
