My Story

One Young World is a great platform for inspiring young leaders all around the world to go hard for their dreams. The Hague – and the whole Netherlands of course – has a great educational system. We are at the top of knowledge economy thanks to easy access to education. I developed, studied, and worked in The Hague, and I feel now it’s my turn to give back to the international society and other young leaders. Dreamcatcher is one of the projects I initiated in The Hague. It encourages and helps young people to be motivated and to stay in school by focusing on their dreams and specifically their dream job. Helping young people in The Hague to find their dream job is one of the ways I try to help build a better world. By being an Ambassador for One Young World The Hague I hope to help young people worldwide.
