Hi! I’m Nikki.

I live in Hoofddorp, the Netherlands. I have just finished secondary school, bilingual pre-university education. Next year I will start my bachelor’s degree ‘Biomedical science’ at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam.

I enjoy being creative, I like to paint, draw and make music. I also love to be active, whether that is by going for a walk outside or just skateboard around, when Dutch weather allows it, or doing an indoor workout. I also play soccer, which allows me to clear my head after a busy day. 

Tell us what the water concern in your country is!

The Netherlands is below sea level, so far they have successfully kept the sea at bay. But because of the melting ice caps and warming seawater the sea level rises. The rising of the Sea level is a concern because how will the Netherlands cope with this extra water.
