As a trainee my daily tasks consist of monitoring political as well as social developments to provide our advisors with suitable information. My enthusiasm for public affairs, and specifically the strategic influence of decision-making processes, first arose during my bachelor political science. I was particularly interested in the connection between private and public interests. In the past year, during my master’s degree in public sector management, I specialised in public affairs. Al together, this makes my traineeship at Public Matters the perfect opportunity to connect my theoretical knowledge with practice and to learn how the processes in The Hague work.
I live in Utrecht. In my spare time I like to go to the gym and read a good book every now and then. Preferably an exciting thriller. I listen to music a lot. When I’m with friends I like to play a competitive board game while enjoying a beer.
