Job summary/responsibilities                                    

My main responsibilities include the implementation of campaigns and monitoring of data to ensure that said campaigns deliver value to our clients. In order to do so effectively, I need to make sure that I understand what clients want to attain with their campaigns and understand how our software and programmed work to a t.

General introduction/background                           

I am Dutch but never quite felt like it. Hence, I wanted to explore and understand different cultures and learn to speak other languages, leading me to study in three different countries: the Netherlands, the USA, and the UK.

By having experienced the value of international studies and making lifelong friends, I ultimately wanted to contribute to a cause that enables other to gain similar experiences. I am also a firm believer that most of the world’s problems could be solved if people are better educated and have a better understanding of different cultures.

Key challenge

Understanding how students look at the information on our portals and what information could be added to the webpages so as to ensure that they are appealing. Bridging the gap between what universities want to say and what students need to know.

Favorite activities         

My favorite activities include reading, travelling, playing video- and board games, and watching films/shows.

Personal Goal

In essence, I want to make sure that I leave the world in a better state than it is today. I believe that the key to this is education and intercultural understanding; working for Studyportals enables me to contribute to this whilst developing myself.
