Today I have been informed that I have been accepted to the Medical Anthropology and Sociology Masters program at the University of Amsterdam. This makes me quite happy since it has been a long road to get here and there is a long but exciting road ahead.
After completing my degree in physiotherapy I realized that I wanted to head in another direction. I took a year off and after this year started looking into my options. One thing I realized along the way was that one of my biggest interests is the LBGTIQ community. This is why I plan to conduct my research in this direction and hope to be able to focus it on the LGBTIQ of the (dutch) caribbean. This is a group that sadly is virtually invisible in research in health.
It will be nice to share my journey on my blog the coming year.
