    The Student Life Podcast #23 - Pronouns (Béla)

    The Student Life Podcast #23 - Pronouns (Béla)

    This Student Life Podcast we will talk about pronouns! Wat are pronouns? Why is it important to use pronouns? And is it important to mention them?

    Together with Béla (they/them) I discover why it is important that we use pronouns and what we still need to do to create a society in which using pronouns is normalized. Béla also gives us a beautiful insight on how using pronouns can have a positive impact on society and life around university. They also share with us how damaging it can be if this normalization does not happen.

    Be sure to also follow Béla and their podcast "Queering the Perspective". You can find the podcast on you favorite platform, and find Béla on IG: @bela.belissima_

    The Student Life Podcast #22 - Dyslexia (Pietro)

    The Student Life Podcast #22 - Dyslexia (Pietro)

    This Student Life Podcast we will talk about Dyslexia! What challenges do students with Dyslexia have to deal with? How does a dyslectic mind work? And is it actually a super power?



    With me to talk about Dyslexia is student entrepreneur Pietro, who is als Dyslectic. He got diagnosed as a young child and by now he knows all there is to know about how to survive life as a dyslectic person. Even more so he can tell us why he loves being Dyslectic more than anyhing! "My dyslexia gave me my creativity, entrepreneurial mind and freedom."



    We know there is stil a lot of stigma's happening around being dyslectic, and within the educational system there is much more that could be done for dyslectic students and dyslexia awareness. With this podcast episode we hope to take another step in this, to support all dyslectic students around.



    Because we are still in a lockdown this episode was recorded online, from the safety of our own homes. This means that the quality is not up to the standart that you are used to, but we made it work! Special thanks to Sachit Ajmani (IG: @sach.aj), who helped putting the background noises to a minimum, so they don't disturb the episode as much as they did during the recording.



    If you want to know more about Pietro and his journey as an entrepreneur, check him our on IG: @thetruepeter, LinkedIn: @Pietro Ferracini, and be sure to listen to his podcast The Italianpreneur! IG: @the_italianpreneur FB:@The Italianpreneur. Also check out his newest business @pausa_cbd.
