As a Social Designer I like to transform societal complexities into multi stakeholder collaborations, bringing practice into policy and vice versa. In this position I am able to do what I like most: searching for synergy; forming a strategy; creating value exchange and above all - enjoy what I’m doing.
I dive into the context of a project with a bottom-up approach to find out the needs, demands and wishes of involved stakeholders. I seek for the question behind the question and translate these findings into opportunties.
I like to co-design and collaborate in a multistakeholder context, preferably as the spider in the web. In this process I strive to empower my stakeholders by creating a feeling of ownership of the process.
I am constantly looking for collaborations that benefit the greater good. I get a lot of energy from organizing events that bring value to all involved parties; the so called win-win(-win-win-..) situation.
I am a 24 year old curious busy bee. Born and raised under the smoke of Amsterdam, now living in Eindhoven and studying Industrial Design at the TU/e.
Often I am described as social, ambitious, responsible and flexible. But above all, I am an enthusiastic person who is always looking for a challenge. Backpacking, teaching teenagers, contacting clients: it excites me and therefore I do it.
I am convinced the world would be a better place if everyone would live along the principles of Social Design: take time for each other, listen, be sincerely interested, find opportunities, be creative and work together towards a higher goal. I try to contribute to this ideal by researching the impact of Social Design on society, both during my studies and my work as an independent designer.
