Born and raised in rural Kansas with immigrant parents from the Netherlands has ensured an upbringing unlike any other. It has created an open-minded, ambitious, independent and determined girl. I have been privileged to see many parts of the world because family is far away - and that is what sparked my love for foreign adventures. International business and economics is therefore an appealing a major that I am pursuing at Fort Hays State University in the U.S. After three years of college athletics I decided to get out of the gym and onto a plane to Linz, Austria.
