      “You’re about to graduate from your masters, any plans for next year?”
      “I’m going to start my PhD in Economics at Stanford University in September. Before I started my studies, I had never considered academia as a possible career path, yet here I am. Throughout the past years, my passion for statistics and its applications to economic problems has grown and when people ask me about my motivation for pursuing a PhD, I often like to quote Greeta Iyengar: “Knowledge has a beginning, but no end.” There is so much more out there in the field that I am eager to learn about, which cannot possibly be taught in a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree. So I’m really excited about the upcoming years and I’m looking forward to some sunny Californian weather, even though I will miss Maastricht and my friends here a lot.”
