After finishing the Bachelor European Studies and the Master Political Science/ International Relations, I have gained a broad understanding of what is happening in field of politics at an international level. However, during my studies we had never explicitly touched upon the Dutch political sphere. This has led me to be eager to learn more about national governance and politics. Doing a traineeship at Public Matters seemed the perfect opportunity for me to immerse myself in the Dutch political landscape and increase my knowledge. As a trainee I will support the consultants by monitoring the daily developments in the Dutch political sphere and various media.
In my spare time I prefer to be far away from the Netherlands, which unfortunately is not possible now. However, a lot during covid-19 and I prefer to do that while enjoying an audiobook or podcast and a good cappuccino. Furthermore I spend a lot of time with friends, I work-out, or I can be found on the couch binge-watching a series.
