About Athlete

I’m a driven, positive, experienced, highly motivated team player both on and off the pitch. Being able to play and study in such an amazing country has always been a dream. I have always strived to achieve the highest possible level in athletics and academics in any situation. Throughout the years I achieved many athletic and academic rewards, including 3 High Honor Certificates and multiple Field Hockey rewards on the Dutch Championship.

Personal Best


What makes you different?

Character: I’m an open minded, hard working, sweet, really open person. People tell me that I am friendly and always open to help people. That is one of the reasons I worked for 3 years in an elderly home as a volunteer. Furthermore, I’m a motivated team player, serious but with a sense of humor. I’ve always been really focused. The last few years I combined 5 days of school on the highest level with 5 days of goalkeeping, 3 days a week working in an elderly home and other activities for school and with friends.

Why do you want to compete in college?

One of the things that made me really interested in college sports is the level of professionalism that is maintained at universities. I prefer to work at high intensity and I think that college sport is the perfect opportunity for this. Furthermore, I am looking forward to attending college sports because it's like a little community. Without sports I wouldn’t be able to study in the USA.

College Goals?

I wish to graduate University (Master) and to compete at the highest level.
