"It pushed me out of my comfort zone week after week."

“The challenging program of United Netherlands pushed me out of my comfort zone week after week. I learned a lot about diplomacy and geopolitics, but most of all I learned a lot about myself. Even though we were the COVID-delegation and had to do some parts online, it was the greatest experience with a group full of people that I will follow for the rest of my life.” – Janneke Hillenaar

The story of Krystal-Marie Benjamins – Delegation 2018|2019

Work hard, play harder. That is how I would summarize my semester as a member of the 16th United Netherlands Delegation.
