During my degree I successfully combined my studies with work and other commitments showing myself to be self-motivated, organised and capable of working under pressure. I have a clear, logical mind with a practical approach to problem solving and a drive to see things through to completion. I enjoy working on my own initiative or in a team. In short, I am reliable, trustworthy, hardworking and eager to learn and have a genuine interest in events. I also have a sense of responsability due to my experiences in the youth mouvement and internships.


In my spare time I love going out with my friends, watch movies, listen to music and go on a vacation.

My hobby's are volleybal, since 1997, and youth mouvement since 1994.

The last 5 years, I was responsable for the organisation of our youth mouvement party, called Moonparty.
