      “In my opinion, the cultural scene of Maastricht is still very unexposed to it's student population. While there are a lot of great non-profit initiatives, for example sustainable community projects and contemporary music events. I aim to put the creative minds behind these initiatives in the spotlight by interviewing them in my podcast series 'Maastricht Cultured'. Culture and creativity are also important to me as a future psychologist; I believe that experiencing art, in all its various forms, can help us better understand each other's and our own feelings.”
