Author Bio

I was born and raised in the Netherlands, where I attended Dutch and bilingual schools, and eventually graduated from the International School of Amsterdam. I am currently a first year at Wellesley College where I am yet to declare a major. I have an older brother, Ruben, who is also a blogger for StudyAdvantage so you can read about his life too! When I’m not focusing on academics, I’m most likely to be found on the golf course or socializing with friends (probably over food). With most of my college career ahead of me, I can’t wait to find out what the future brings and I am very excited to share these experiences with my readers.
