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.
  3. 3. Page3. OTHER INTERESTS: 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.
