In 2006 I came in contact with Roots&Routes, I then participated in Summerscool Rotterdam as a dancer. The project meant a lot to me. It was that summer I decided to chase my dream and apply for the dance academy.
In 2007 I started at the dance academy in Rotterdam, a dream came through. But life never turns out the way you plan and the same year I had to stop because of personal problems. It wasn’t the right time for me...
For a long period I couldn’t dance at all. I had to find another way to express myself and that’s when I started making short films.
The past four years I did a lot of different things. I won the Kunstbende finale in 2009 in the category film & animation. I wrote a lot, for myself and for a youth film redaction called Moviezone. I’ve followed a program at the art academy, worked at an open art studio, participated at a youth jury at a film festival and helped out at cultural festivals as a volunteer.
At this time I’m hoping to start a new study again next school year, I’m hoping for film academy.
My interests vary from dance, writing, film: moving images, reading, theatre, art: and how to combine all those things. I see art as a way to make people conscience. To experiment, to investigate. Or to make people come together, to re-unit. To understand our self and each other.
