Within Solid I'm the link between the social projects abroad and the Belgian office. My role is to guide, inspire and monitor them as well as broaden their international networks. I’m also the one that puts all the volunteers within our organisation on the right track. All the stories I encounter about our social impact, I integrate in our Communications.
I like: travelling, smiling people, happy plants and working with the social teams towards new possibilities.
My favorite quote: "Why stay in your comfort zone when there's a lot more to do out there."
With a small team not all tasks can be covered, but together with a team of freelancers we can get the job done!
All the work could not be done, without the amazing people that help us voluntarily behind the scenes!
