I dose my energy with willpower and perseverance to meet current and future challenges. In addition to my medical studies, I came into contact with the theme ‘studying with a disability’ through the Descartes honors program. After I conducted a study into the accessibility of Utrecht University, I discovered the demand to form a group that is committed to the interests of other students with a disability. I founded Platform Onbeperkt Studeren (Studying without Limitations) in 2017 with the aim to assist students with a disability at Utrecht University. This award-winning initiative is primarily concerned with information provision, providing additional guidance, policymaking, and research. In 2019 I won the ECIO Frank award for my work within the Platform Unlimited Studying.

Nowadays, I mainly have coordinating tasks within the Platform and I am tasked with embedding of the Platform within Utrecht University. After several years working on the theme ‘studying with a disability’, I am now preparing myself to continue within the medical field with the ambition to become a pediatrician.
