After graduating from University College (2017) in Maastricht, she decided to delve into the world of documentary filmmaking.

DIVERSION

March 2018 – August 2018 Internship

August 2018 - Jan. 2019 ​Project Employee (PE) Education for the

Mind Young Academy

 

During my internship at the development-team of Diversion I got the luxury to get to know many different facets of the organisation. Beside spotting new trends and gaining new communication skills, I was involved with developing different projects which could be implemented in the classroom.

 

As a PE I worked for the MIND Young Academy (MYA). The aim of the MYA is to break through the taboo on psychological health and to identify and prevent complaints at an early stage. The school year of 2018/2019 the program was being expanded and I was responsible for the recruitment of schools and marketing of the school program.
It was a great experience to work in such a hybrid, enthusiastic and young team who wants to make the world a better place.

 

EDUCATION

DOCUMENTARY KICKSTARTER
Aug. 2019 - Dec. 2019 Creatief met Film - Academy

UNIVERSITY COLLEGE MAASTRICHT(UCM)
2013 - 2017 Bachelor in Liberal Arts&Sciences

During my time at UCM I took a wide variety of courses and I realized that I enjoy an interdisciplinary concentration of Humanities and Social Sciences (SSC) with a focus on Contemporary Security Studies from a Cultural Perspective. I wrote my thesis on the integration of the Moroccan and Turkish third generation. At UCM I developed a way of combining research with reality and learned how to step outside of the bubble and form my own opinion. 

 

2016 Project: Undergraduate Research: The Documentary 

 

Beside directing and doing research my main task of the documentary was conducting the interviews. Since the topic is still taboo it was important to make the interviewees feel at ease. The group dynamic was very intense where we worked together for a long time and definitely finished our project all with proud. Creative- and solution thinking was also part of the job and is something I further developed in this time period.

2015 semester abroad at  AARHUS UNIVERSITY - Business & Social Science

Here I gained some new insights into the business field. Courses as Persuasion and Inter Cultural Communication were very refreshing and showed me how my SSC background can be applied in different fields. 

Beside the studies I was able to get special insight into the Danish culture, where I felt very much at home. Furthermore, I see this semester abroad as an unique experience where I got to know great new people. ​
