Kevin Eustatia - Palm
Hey everyone! My name is Kevin and I'm a 1st-year IPM student. I was born in Curaçao and lived in the Caribbean for all my life. The diversity of IPM is one of the things I enjoy the most. Not only the diversity of ethnicity, language, and culture, but also the diversity of opinions, ideologies, and world views. The fact that we can all come together in a safe space to discuss our differences is a key part of IPM. The Hague University has opened many doors for me in my first year, and I look forward to many more open doors during my next 2 years at IPM!Ask Kevin your question
