While I was studying, preparing for my career wasn’t much on my mind. I focussed on passing classes I enjoyed, chilling with friends for hours on end and of course going out. Looking back, I wish I would have prepared slightly more - which would’ve saved me...

When I started my studies at the University of Groningen, little did I know that barely two years later, I’d find myself living, studying and travelling in Canada. But there I was, and going on exchange to Montreal turned out to be one of the best decisions...

Over the years I’ve studied at the UG, I’ve taken and passed tons of exams, I’ve written as many essays and I’ve read thousand of pages of textbooks. I’ve walked and cycled the streets of Groningen countless times, tried every store in the city and I’ve been...
