**Why do I work at EUC?**
After 2,5 years in the USA, I returned to the Netherlands to continue working as a researcher. To be able to apply my passion for teaching also, I started tutoring at EUC in January 2017. Why EUC? Because it’s in my home town and it fits my interdisciplinary background and affection for multicultural environments. Therefore, I am happy that I can fully focus on teaching now, as a lecturer and tutor for the Life Sciences department of EUC.
