Photographer Marie Cecile Thijs portrayed thirty alumni for the alumni platform EUR Connect. Shai Rambaran is one of them. After his medicine degree, he became a cosmetic doctor. His advice to students: 'You always need to be the best you can be.'

What are your fondest memories of your student days? 
'I got to know a lot of new people who I’m still in touch with. I remember the tension and nerves before the exams, and then the happiness when passing the exams or sadness when failing some. 
The university was also really important in my own development as a person. I entered the university as a young, inexperienced boy, and I left with knowledge, self-confidence, and maturity.'

What does your typical workday look like? 
'Aesthetic medicine has always interested me: I like to make people prettier. I see patients every day, and my goal is to improve their appearance. It could concern a surgical treatment, an injectable or skin treatment. I try to make the results naturally pretty, so that people feel better about their appearance.'

'The university has made me ready for the world'

How has your degree at EUR contributed to realising these dreams?

'Enjoy your student life and make sure that you make the most of the opportunities you get.'
