Tell us a little something about your Country ?
The town I grew up in, Emmen, is a small town in the province of Drenthe which is in the northeast of Holland close to the German border. Drenthe is famous for its nature; many older couples move to Emmen to retire. The Dutch Queen regularly visits Drenthe to horseback ride.
Future ambitions ?
Gain a VWO Degree and Bachelor in Cultural Anthropology at the University of Utrecht. Next year, I would like to study Spanish as well.
I am a very easy going girl. I love sports and I like to have fun with my friends. Another thing that describes me is the fact I am stubborn and cannot stand injustice (which fits my interest for culture).
Whatever you think, always consider the opposite too.
Favourite food ?
My favourite food is not a typical Drenthe or Dutch dish but a sandwich with bakkeljauw which is a family recipe from Suriname made from codfish. Delicious!
Favourite Music / Books ?
I like different kinds of music: soul, R&B and Latin therefore I don’t really have a favourite singer, but lots of singers. I really like Bruno Mars who is very popular in the Netherlands. I like enjoy listening to folk music, soul and blues singer Jusic Nozuka who is of Canadian/Japanese descent.
Do you have any pets?
In my old house I owned many pets: two dogs, two cats and horse, but, now I live in an apartment where I live solely with my cat, Moos. My horse just gave birth to a foal. I adore animals so I really like to be surrounded by them.
What is the proudest moment of your life or most memorable day?
I am proud of myself when I am challenged with an adventure which is expected to be difficult and I manage to accomplish it. So that is not one moment or one memorable day, but many. I am looking forward to travelling to Spain, alone, for two months. I hope to add it to my list of proudest moments.
Any other interesting facts ?
I am interested in horseback riding, dancing, snowboarding, watching movies and going out with friends.
