I create stories

In the most broad sense of the word.

One of my defining principles is my passion for equality, diversity and inclusivity. Through my work, my mission is to work towards a more equal, diverse and inclusive society. I'm a freelance communications professional telling stories of brands, projects and women around the globe. I create content, I coordinate projects and I build communities. In case you are convinced to work with me already...

 

Female Founders Force

My most recent and significant project is the #FemaleFoundersForce program, an initiative I've organized and coordinated for The Next Women. With this 7th global edition of the pitch program, we’re supporting female entrepreneurship worldwide in collaboration with a variety of Embassies of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, EY, Hearst Netherlands, KLM and StartupAmsterdam. The program has elevated women-led startups in Argentina (Buenos Aires), Portugal (Lisbon), Israel (Tel Aviv) and the Netherlands (Amsterdam) to success.

 

With The Next Women pitch program, women invest in women; offering a podium to women-led startups. In my role of projectmanager I was responsible for the organization of the annual pitch program in Paris, London and Amsterdam (2018) - Buenos Aires, Lisbon, Tel Aviv and Amsterdam (2019) in collaboration with a variation of Dutch Embassies.

Marie Claire NL

Crowning my work for She Matters, my first print article featuring (founder and CEO of the foundation) Christina Moreno's career path and lifestyle, appeared in Marie Claire's August issue. The article was written, reviewed and edited by me. A great way to combine my love for writing with the PR for the foundation. Publication: July 2019.

The Next Women

The Next Women is the community for women entrepreneurs, professionals and investors. A network on the one hand, a crowd fund of female angel investors on the other. In my role as communications manager I was responsible for all communications: podcast series, e-mailmarketing, social content, webinars and innovative projects to spread the mission worldwide.

She Matters

She Matters is a social enterprise recruitment agency with a mission to empower refugee women to build their social and economic capital, boost their self-confidence and become leaders in their homes, businesses and communities. As freelance communications specialist I was responsible for the coordination of all communications to strengthen the brand and mission.

For the worldwide Female Founders Force program I was interviewed for the January issue of Harper's Bazaar NL, as Hearst Publishers was one of the main partners of the initiative. A magazine for women with a well-dressed mind, inevitably linked to the mission and vision of the female-focused program. Publication: December 2019.

Hustle & Heart Consultancy is a mindset, business and branding consultancy for starters, start-ups and scale-ups, with a focus on female entrepreneurs. In order to shine light on the "good things come to those who hustle" masterclass, I managed all social media channels with the goal to sell out the event.

In the role of content editor I wrote online articles for the online magazine Girls Who on a regular basis. The magazine is focused on the young & vibrant woman in the city. My role within the team is the further deepening of the platform, in particular when it comes to empowerment and entrepreneurship. My most recent project is the interview I did with Otegha Uwagba, author of Sunday Times Bestseller Little Black Book.

Creative Women Collective is a community that connects creatives: online with themselves, offline with each other. After graduating at the University of Amsterdam, I dreamt of publishing my master's thesis on Female blackness through the sounds of music. CWC made that dream come true: I transformed my thesis into a weekly research project that appeared on their website. And so my story - and that of telling others - began.

MMousse is a creative branding agency with two locations in Amsterdam. Their Canal House, Church and Future House are known for their soothing and relaxing atmosphere and are therefore described as "city oases". I'm hosting MMousse events on a freelance basis for clients such as LINDA.Meiden, Marie Claire NL, Booking.com, Facebook and Gemeente Amsterdam.

Are you a brand, organization or entrepreneur that can use a little help with creative...

Communications

In my work, I've been the lead of several communications projects. Translating the mission and vision of an organization, foundation or entrepreneur to a specific target audience is where my heart (and experience) is.

Communities

Through my (freelance) roles I've learnt that building, coordinating and managing your community, is at the heart of a brand. Need support with the management of your community or the attraction of new fans? I'm your person.

Campaigns

Creating innovative and creative campaigns to bring your mission to the people, is what I love to work on. With a focus on the themes diversity, inclusivity and equality, l'd be happy to support you and create magic together.

Content

We're living in a digital age and creative content has never been this essential. From social media content to on- and offline articles. I'll create a coherent and refreshing brand with and for you through all content.
