About Me

At the moment I am traveling in Israel and Japan until the beginning of September!! :)

I have a big passion for psychology so I spend a good amount of time thinking/wondering/reading/talking about it. My father is from the Netherlands where I grew up and my mother is from Poland. I am very enthusiastic and I believe in positivity, that everybody has their own purpose in life and that we should find it and spread the message! I like to smile and be around people who motivate me, make me smile and show an teach me new things. I'm chaotic, enthusiastic, sometimes a little bit all over the place, in general very happy. I love reading, my favorite books are: Siddhartha and Ishmael, I also like to read about philosophy and politics. I love dancing, discovering cities, learning new things, just wondering around, discussing all kinds of topics and talking to people, hearing different point of views and opinions, I like to learn about different cultures.

At the moment I live in a small student house so there is not really space to host. If you want to meet for a tea/wandering around the city/ going to a museum, send me a message!!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was spending some weeks in the middle of the jungle in a self sustainable healing space in Mexico.. there I really learned what it is to be in peace with yourself, I saw life from a different perspective, one of those places that humble you

Teach, Learn, Share

Radiate positivity! Try not to talk bad about anyone, complain little, dance and smile, BE THANKFUL, be the change that you like to see in the world. It is my truth, if the meaning of life is to give your life meaning, I wish we all contribute in making the world a better place. I like to try to see as many perspective possible by talking to all different people, who teach me this, and reading books. Also I think that if we want to understand each other it's so important we speak each others language and we see that no language is 'better' or 'more important' than the other.
