Meet Myrthe

Here we could tell you about our professional and academic background. For example we could state that Myrthe finished a Bachelor in International Relations & Organisations and that she has designed learning experiences for the Centre for Innovation at the University of Leiden. We could say that Myrthe is chair of the Meet Kate Foundation, that she started a blog called THIS IS HAPPENING and that she works as a freelance graphic designer.

We could also share that Kiymet has a bachelor in Child and Adolescent Development Psychology and that she graduated with a Research Master International Development Studies. We could mention that she works at the University of Amsterdam where she helped managing a two-year research project on the role of Education in Peacebuilding in collaboration with UNICEF. We could share that she is board member of the Meet Kate foundation, where she and Myrthe met in 2012.

But, we feel society is far too focused on what we do, rather than on who we are. Therefore, we prefer to share that we are happiest surrounded by good energy, exploring new places and meeting others who inspire us. We love exchanging knowledge, experiences and laughter with curious open minds, especially with young people.

Myrthe’s Sun

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15″][vc_column_text]

As a little girl Myrthe was always creating, imagining and initiating. Not that much has changed ever since. Her Sun is designing experiences through which people can connect to themselves, with each other and to the world around them. Myrthe strongly believes that if we are free to be whoever we want to be, we can create a world we love.

Kiymet’s Sun

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15″][vc_column_text]

Kiymet loves people. The moments she feels most alive are filled with connection, love, adventure and joy. Her Sun? Creating awareness about everyone’s unique talents and powers and using this confidence to increase the amount of trust people have in the world, in each other – and most importantly – in themselves.
