A confidant is a trustworthy person within Storm that can be contacted at all times to seek help, in the first place when members experience problems within the association, but also for personal situations, if the member feels the need for this. The main tasks of a Confidant is to offer a listening ear to members and refer them to facilities that can provide aid and support. A confidant has a duty of confidentiality. Storm has two confidants: one board member and one member who is not in the board. They will receive training on how to fulfil the role of confidant. More information can be found in the Confidant’s Code of Ethics.

Current Confidants:


Tamara Luiken

I am Tamara, a fourth-year Stormer doing a year of university council. You might have seen me at a Storm event here or there, however, this year I am a bit less active at Storm. I enjoy listening to indie-soul or afrobeats, most often while dancing in my chair, taking pictures in nature and watching sci-fi. In any case, if you have a question or you want to report transgressive behaviour you can come to me or the other confidants


Samuel Tax

​​Hi, my name is Samuel and I am a fourth-year Stormer and I am currently finishing my bachelors. Besides Storm, I like to spend my spare time with friends, playing football and playing the piano. Moreover, I like to listen to hip hop, funk and jazz music. If you encounter any inconvenient or inappropriate situation with our association, you can always talk about it with me or the other confidants.
