#2: What to do with a Master’s Degree? A Deep Dive into Kickboxing with Merlijn Broersma

What would you do when you graduate your master’s degree Cum Laude?

I guess it wouldn’t be what Merlin did; get a part-time job and prepare for a kickbox fight.

A remarkable contrarian decision that is a signature behavior of Merlin. Well-thought, philosophical, intelligent, and always on the lookout to bend life to his image.

Where I traveled around the world to create life the way I wanted it to be, he did it at home.
