Who am I?
I am Pieter Populaire, a student in Medicine at the KU Leuven. I started studying Medicine after passing the entrance examination in 2013. In June 2016, I graduated from my Bachelor's degree in Medicine, cum laude. Currently, I am enrolled in the first year of the Master's degree in Medicine. At my university I am an active member in the student community called Medica. This community brings together students in Medicine and Biomedical Sciences for both leisure and academic-related activities. Besides this I am a member of the youth service club Rotaract North-Limburg, the youth devision of the extensive Rotary International network. As part of this service club, I love to help in charity.
Two passions of mine which I would love to highlight in this brief introduction are both multimedia and travelling. I love spending time behind a (computer) screen, solving (logical) problems in the most diverse manners. For that reason, I am currently the webmaster in both of my main extra-curricular activities: student community Medica and non-profit organization Rotaract North-Limburg. The second passion to highlight is that I love travelling in order to learn about different cultures and habits. Nowadays, the world is to be considered so small, thats why my motto is 'Why not explore it?’, both on an academic level and for leisure.
