Felix Quarnström, Student Ambassadeur Kunst, Literatuur en Samenleving

Felix Quarnström is from Finland, he has a bachelor’s degree in Art, Literature & Culture, specialisation Arts and Culture from Maastricht University and decided to come back to Maastricht for the master’s programme in Art, Literature and Society. “After my bachelor’s degree I took a gap year and moved to Berlin, like many of my fellow students. I tried to find a job but when that didn’t work out, I went back to Finland and worked a while as a radio host. I always knew that I wanted to do a master’s programme, the question was which one. I looked at semiotics, one of my favourite topics, and film-related studies. Considered other universities as well, but in the end I found I missed Maastricht. I’d really enjoyed my bachelor’s study here, so I figured I would definitely like this master’s programme as well, if not more. And I do! So far, it’s been great. I’m definitely not done with studying yet and might take up a second master’s after this year.”

The person who guesses the right amount (or close to it) will win an amazingly sweet Sinterklaas surprise!! May the best man or woman win! The winner will be announced on Tuesday 5 December.

      Lift Off: The Sky Is Not the Limit, It Is Only the Beginning.
      In 2016, his Harvard Graduate School of Education convocation address “Lift Off” went viral, reaching over thirteen million views and prompting Hillary Clinton to praise, “It’s young graduates like Livingston who make it clear that America’s best days are still ahead.” Since his pivotal speech, Donovan Livingston has been featured on CNN, NPR, BBC, Good Morning America, and in news outlets across Europe, Australia, India, and South Africa. And now he is coming to Maastricht University to spread his empowering message!
