About me:

I am one of the first seven Europeans in the
position of Social Innovation Fellow at the US
State Department, and I design and execute social
projects as a Global Shaper for the World
Economic Forum. Next to that, I build and
activate a nationwide network to innovate
education in lower schools around the
Netherlands as a Kwartiermaker / Pioneer for
IMC Weekendschool, and I run my own social
platform AMS Connected, through which my
team and I connect 2.520 Amsterdam locals and
expats to each other and their communities by
hosting over 150 events per year. A couple times
a year, I advice the US Embassy in The Hague on
youth engagement.
