I started a company, Trades of Hope, when I was just 15 years old that empowers women around the world out of poverty. I believe in the power of sustainable business to end poverty and create equality for women to become leaders!
I was born in the Netherlands and have been traveling the world since I was 2. Traveling has allowed me to have a wide world view and appreciate diversity. (I have a goal to see all the wonders of the world by 30!)
My love for expression has lead me to earn a Bachelors in Journalism/PR and a Masters in Communications for Social Change. I've had writing nationally published and became an accomplished designer, creative director, and marketer.
