The internship at the Dutch Government during my Bachelor European Studies has resulted in my active membership of the political youth organisation the Liberal Democrats (‘Young Democrats’ – D66). Ever since, national and international politics have been on top of my mind. However, I would love to learn more about how one can influence politics effectively for societal purpose. Therefore, I am happy to be a trainee at Public Matters to learn this and dive into the world of Public Affairs. My main tasks are to monitor all developments in The Hague and Brussels, and assist all advisors with their daily tasks.
In my free time I love to cook and started crossfit to balance the love for food. I like to listen to different kinds of music and love to visit al sorts of festivals. I am interested to learn more about different cultures and try to travel to new places every year.
