Introducing Lisa

Hi! My name is Lisa and I am from the Netherlands!

I studied History at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, with a focus area of International Relations. As part of this course, I did my Erasmus in Münster (Germany). I recently graduated, but I was always looking for a way to broaden my horizon further than just studying history. After encountering the GLOCAL programme, I was immediately excited because of the interesting courses and opportunities the different universities have to offer. The combination of history, business, politics, science and technology makes it a great addition to the foundation laid by my previous studies.

Besides that, I wanted to be surrounded by people from all corners of the world and share their culture and ways of thinking. I am very grateful to be a part of such a diverse, talented and creative group of people. Each day we get new opportunities to share knowledge and ideas with each other, inspiring me to develop myself further. During this Masters’ I am on my way to truly finding my interests and future aspirations, while undertaking consultancy projects and internships. I think GLOCAL will provide me with a solid foundation for my future career.

To tell you something about myself:

  • Coffee-addict
  • Cat lover
  • Strong passion for re-watching the same Netflix series and movies over and over again
  • Possessing a talent of winning Kahoot quizzes (no matter what the topic is)
  • On my way to becoming fluent in Spanish (thanks to my classmates)
  • Loves to study and explore the world
  • Listens to the broadest range of music (from techno to Glee)

While being in Glasgow (and falling in love with this city) I’ve developed a new addiction for Indian food and Latin music. I am looking forward to all the new experiences, challenges and opportunities that living in three global cities will provide. So far it has been a wonderful and surprising experience, definitely exceeding all my expectations!
