Writing

Ever since I can remember I have loved writing, capturing, playing with words and gathering more in the treasure chest. I made copious notes during trips, life events. It started as diaries and fun, action packed letters to friends, then In Africa I had the chance to do two Creative Writing Modules (University of Lancaster and Open University. 2003-2004) and since then I write and write.

 

My passion: Capturing to remember and to share
My purpose: to entertain and inform
My dream: to combine my love of travel and my genuine curiosity of people.

 

These are the services I offer:
Reporting (Magazine articles)
Chronicling (Events)
Writing YOUR story

I wrote the new corporate brochure for the International Institute of Social Studies the Hague (ISS), aligning it with their vision developed over the past 60 years, yet very mich in our actual world.

It was such a pleasure to work with Julie on our brand new corporate brochure. With her meaningful questions, an out-of-the-box way of looking at things and her cheerful approach, she added an important personal touch to the publication. We love the result.”
Sandra Nijhof, communication and marketing manager ISS, The Hague

I have had the pleasure of experiencing Julie’s presentation and public speaking talent on many occasions. She always comes across as very professional, confident and talks with passion especially about matters that mean a lot to her. Not only that, Julie is a very warm person and I’m very happy to know her and be a member of her network.

I would like to recommend Julie for her English lessons! For 2 years she playfully tutored my nine year old daughter and three of her friends in feeling comfortable and improving their English! She did this through exercises and games and walks and they looked forward to their Friday session. She has an eye for making her pupils feel at ease and every lesson is an adventure. They are now well prepared for English at school. I can highly recommend Julie!

Julie was my saviour in time of need. She is very enthusiastic in teaching. She liked helping me and she also liked the exercises I had to make (she liked them more than me!That’s why I dared to ask everything. I decided what we were going to do in the lessons and she prepared the texts I had sent to her. She is a professional and explained everything until it’s clear to me (100 times if she had to). Before I had Julie I saw the stuff I had to learn as a mountain that was too high to climb, but by doing it together with Julie I didn’t dread making the exercises anymore. It wasn’t just my English that has improved, but she gave me more self-confidence. She taught me to be proud of myself. Julie taught me two years until I finished Highschool (VWO) and I got the highest Mark I had ever had in English. My English is not flawless, but I’m not afraid of making mistakes anymore. Julie is a true person who takes you very serious. I would really recommend her.

I can recommend Julie as an English teacher. She has taught me to feel confident with English again. With her weekly lesson she has prepared me for my new job where English was needed too. We had a lot of social talks, so I got the chance to speak in a relaxed way. She is a very enthousiastic and intelligent person so she is capable to inspire you very well.
