SPECIAL SKILLS/ UNIQUE CONTRIBUTIONS:
As a person of different nationality, I speak (read&write) several languages: Dutch,
Flemish, French, German, and English. (a little Spanish too). This helps me to be able
to bring extra versatility from a cultural perspective.
I also bring unique experiences with me because of my background and life
experiences such as homelessness, judiciary troubles, severe dependency of legal
and illegal substances, and other experiences.
I possess a talent to be able to adapt and overcome with whatever is in front of me,
or in my immediate surroundings: a quality to be competent to “make a silk purse
out of a sow’s ear”.
Maybe the quality I like the most about myself is the willingness to “get my hands
dirty” alongside my colleagues and clients to accomplish and learn the task at hand.
I love music, I play guitar and I recently started getting my feet wet with building
and repairing acoustic and electric guitars.
I like watching movies (all kinds) and I enjoy reusing old “stuff” and find uses for it.
Since 2008, I have enjoyed an increasing interest in psychodrama as an extra
pathway to personal healing and a means to help others.
Life and a searching for inner peace.
