Could you tell us something about your work at the department?
I am part of the education team of our department. I give lectures and I’m the new internship coordinator. I work from Wednesday till Friday.
Could you describe yourself in a few words:
I am originally a technical physician who likes education, a fulltime mother of my beautiful 8 months old daughter Ayse Humeyra and amateur league football player at RKSV Margriet. I’m the kind of person that wakes up with a smile in the morning, but just can’t stay awake after 23:00. I love to watch movies and I’m a huge fan of anime!
What do you normally do in the weekends?
We have quite a routine in the weekends. My husband goes to cross-fit every Saturday morning while I have breakfast with my daughter. In the afternoon we get groceries and in the evening we visit family or friends.
On Sunday mornings I’m playing football. My husband and daughter cheer me on. Afterwards we spend time together, just the three of us, play games with our daughter, go to a petting zoo or just take a long walk together.
What are your hobbies and can you tell us something about your favorite one?
My hobbies are drawing, traveling, hiking and football. I can’t really choose a favorite one but I have to say that I’m quite good at drawing, I already have planned 3 vacations till the Christmas holidays, can hike for hours with my daughter on my back and you can always come watch our football match every Sunday around 12:00!
Oh but if I have to choose my favorite hobby it would be: spending time with my little monster (fresh mother cliché).
Could you describe your best holiday?
My best holiday would be my holiday to the Czech Republic with my husband. It was autumn and it was so beautiful. We did a lot of mountain biking in the north of the Czech Republic and I fell in love with the nature.
What is your dream for the future?
Travel the whole wide world
The picture below is taken in Turkey. We were travelling back to the Netherlands and needed to get on a ferry. Our daughter didn’t like it so much. She hated the warm wind in her face, so we just were ‘sad’ with her. Afterwards we went inside and she immediately cheered up!
