Promoting Wageningen

Today we did our best to promote Wageningen University. Together we went to Milton Peters College, one of the secondary school in Sint-Maarten.

We were invited in two biology classes to tell about our chikungunya study. In our presentation we included Wageningen University and our studies, since a lot of teenagers here are planning to study in The Netherlands. Of course, Rotterdam and Amsterdam are two cities the teenagers are familiar with. Unfortunately, Wageningen is not that famous. A lot of them didn’t know the place. The teenagers were very curious about studying in general and the teacher stimulated us to share our story and our experiences in the world of studying. It is so strange to conclude that my study period is almost over. I can still remember my first day. It was great to stimulate them to start their study in The Netherlands.
