Minister Plenipotentiary Henrietta Doran-York and staff recently hosted St. Maarten students studying in the Netherlands at St. Maarten House in The Hague for an end-of-year “unification.”
The majority of the students are unable to return home for the holidays, said the Minister. The event was her way of giving them the chance to unite with especially their peers. The event also served as an encouragement for in particular the first-year students. “This is a very difficult time of year, where they oftentimes can become discouraged due to missing their family that they recently left,” she said.
