After travelling the world, I returned to my home town Alkmaar in the Netherlands where I’m living now with my son Oscar (2013) and our two cats. We enjoy our days off at the beach or love to go to a concert in the park on Sundays.

After becoming a mother, I realized how important it is for a child to grow up in a safe and secure environment. This is one of the reason why I started volunteering in refugee camps in Greece. 

Sometimes it can be quite a challenge to find some time to breath in-between translating, volunteering and having quality time with my son, but thanks to practicing yoga and meditation on a regular basis I can still have a life beautiful life without too much stress.
