‘The best of both world’ is a good way to describe me. Born in Kenya, raised in the Netherlands. I have always found it a privilege to grow up with the influences of 2 different cultures. I had all the comforts of the modern world combined with Kenyan hospitality.

Up till my 20’s Kenya was great place to just spend the holidays. Visiting family for a couple of weeks, enjoying the nice weather. In 2006 I decided to head to Kenya for an internship at legal non-profit organization. Those 6 months I spent in Kenya changed my life completely. The years following the trips to Kenya became more frequent and it made me see that  I could have a future in this country.

This country makes you stronger, makes you fight for what you stand for. Anytime I’d accomplish something, which I thought would never happen, I would get this adrenaline rush that made me feel like I was really alive.

Now I want to help you meet ‘my’ Kenya. This country should be on anyones bucket list. An adventure that you’ll remember the rest of you life and you’ll never get enough thinking and talking about that amazing trip.
