Executive Director - SOLS 24/7 Education | Free online classes for the public
I enable people to develop their talent through providing access to free online education. Education is a human right and should be accessible to anyone. Through SOLS 24/7 Education, I work with donors, foundations, companies, ministries, and volunteer networks, to offer online classes for free, with a special focus on reaching out to the B40 community, school teachers, and students.
I have been working in the education sector in Malaysia since 2011. My Dutch roots, combined with my international experience, gives me a well-rounded perspective on education and human capital development. I have grown my skills in end-to-end project management, fundraising, and impact assessment, through having worked with a plethora of partners on large-scale education and training programmes.
I love the work I do and I have turned my passion into a career. I work daily on education programmes that help people to grow and become a better version of themselves. It gives me a great sense of fulfilment and satisfaction when this happens as I know how hard change can be at first. But when it happens, the results are mind-blowing. Education truly is the most powerful weapon to change the world – no matter what stage you are in life.
