Creating lollipop moments since 1991
Marjanne Luinstra is a University Innovation Fellow at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. As a Master student Healthcare Technology & Management (a specialty within Industrial Engineering and Management), she is grasping the foundations of data analysis, innovations in healthcare, machine learning & neural networks and uses her imagination and curiosity to create connections between reality and opportunity.
The University of Twente is located in Enschede, the Netherlands, and during her Bachelor in Technical Medicine she has been president of her study association and the umbrella organization of all study associations. Marjanne has a seat in the supervisory board of the independent newspaper of the University. Next to that, she has taken a seat in multiple boards of advice and was a volunteer for the Dutch (Stemcell) Donor Association. At the moment, she is working for the summerschool CuriousU and is a DreamTeam member in the DesignLab.
Last year she had the unique opportunity to become friends with students from all over the world during the Healthcare Leadership Summerschool in South Africa. She learned that every individual you encounter has a unique and amazing story to tell, and all stories are worth our attention. Learning one's story can open your eyes and enrich you in ways you could never imagine, and the art of storytelling can be learned by anyone. This way she learned that the choices that are regretted most, are the ones provoked by fear. But as Marianne Wilkinson once said: "It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us." So let's start shining!
