"We should be proud because we fucking invented falafel!"
"Later when I went to study French literature I was exposed to writers such as Sartre, Proust, Beauvoir, and Camus. I loved philosophy, and especially existentialism; the concept of choice always resonated with me. Engaging with community and writing gave me the means to make the world a better place. During my studies, I applied for an internship at VICE. I felt an urge to bring a certain perspective to the Dutch mainstream media, because LGBTQ+ issues and women’s rights were portrayed through a Western lense. Once I got going, I basically haven’t stopped."
