Author Bio

I was born and raised in the Netherlands. As a rising senior in high school, I had the amazing opportunity to study on Harvard’s campus as part of the Harvard Secondary School Program (SSP). This turned out to be a life-changing decision - when I came back home from Cambridge in August that summer, I knew that I wanted to study in the US for my bachelor’s degree. I put my heart and soul into the application process, and I really haven’t looked back much ever since.
