Confidants (Vertrouwenspersonen)

In order to ensure that our association is a safe and comfortable space for all of our members, we have two confidants who are available for members to talk to. These people are no health professionals and as such they act as a first point of contact. You can approach them with any and all questions and issues, both Albion related and not, and, of course, everything you talk about will remain strictly confidential.


These are the confidants of academic year 2022-2023:

Wobke Ballast

Hi everyone,
My name is Wobke and I am a third year student at ELC. Many of you know me from my function as the Commissioner of Internal Affairs of board XXXI. As I thoroughly enjoyed the amount of contact I had with our members, I decided to apply for the position of confidant to further develop my connection with our members. I would love to be a safe space for people in case they need someone to talk to. If you have any questions for me personally, feel free to reach out! My email is:


Kas Suikerbuik

My name is Kas, I’m 19 years old, and I’m going into my second year of English. Joining this studies has been a great choice, mainly because of the amazing people that I got to meet. It feels good to be surrounded by other language nerds.

I will be one of the confidants of Albion, which means you will always be welcome to talk to me about your struggles, whether it be personal or study related. Even if you’re just looking for someone to talk to your day about, I will be there to listen. Everything will stay between the two of us.

Some things that I like doing in my free time are playing the guitar and acting. I’m super excited to be part of the SUDS board (Students of Utrecht Drama Society) next year.

If you have any questions, you can always e-mail me:

Okay bye!
