I have a Bachelor of Science in Water Management from the Netherlands and I am currently in the first year of an international master’s in marine biological resources and conservation from Spain, Italy, and Belgium. I have taken part in an exchange opportunity in Finland, where I was able to deeply study coastal management and ecology, which is today a great passion of mine.
