Stefan Knapen, the author

My name is Stefan Knapen, I am 24 years old and I live in Groningen, the Netherlands.

  • At the age of 18 I graduated high school with an 8 (on the scale of 1-10) average, which brought me straight away in med school
  • At the age of 18 I got into Medical School at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands
  • At the end of my high school experience I started to write my thoughts down on StudySuccessful
  • At the age of 19 I write for 3 different blogs now (including the Dutch version of Lifehacker) and keep developing my internet experience
  • At the age of 20 I organized one of the biggest student conferences on medical sciences
  • At the age of 21 I received my Bachelor of Science in Medicine.
  • At the age of 22 (current age) I keep rocking my on- and offline life!
  • At the age of 23 I started a combination track in which I combine my last couple of years of Med School with a PhD-program (called the ‘MD/PhD track‘).

I keep having fun with this little thing called the world wide web. And I keep having fun at the University.
