I studied biology. Not really the kind of education one would expect at a communications agency. Still, the career path I followed was not quite at random. At high school, I was captivated by the fascinating facts of nature. During my studies however I realised I wanted to keep a broad interest in things. For that reason, a master in science communication was a perfect mix. During my work at the Amsterdam Zoo I discovered that education is my real passion. Moving people with interesting stories and facts. That is also the reason why I feel like a fish in water at DST within the youth communication team.
