Jan is human. Jan is Earthling. Jan is European and Dutch. Jan is also a second year European Studies student. At least, that’s what he tells everyone. For the most part he follows first year classes, sometimes even for a second time. Jan joined the Maastricht Diplomat a few months ago to improve his writing, meet new people and become part of the Maastricht international community. Jan’s wide variety of interests include European and international politics, Great Britain, britpop, blues, modern art and Love Island UK. He looks forward to writing articles for the MD.
