Author Bio

Hi everyone! I am a multicultural 20 year old who is currently studying psychology in London. I was born in Leiden and went to a Dutch primary school. When I was 9 years old, I moved to Rome with my family and found myself finishing high school back in the Netherlands 4 years later. Over the years my interest in humans and why they do what they do has grown and it is one of the many reasons I chose to study psychology. I consider myself an enthusiastic, optimistic and ambitious person, who loves to explore and meet new people. I can’t wait to see what new adventures StudyAdvantage will send my way!
