  • “Jouw presentatie was plezierig en vermakelijk om naar te luisteren en te kijken. Een keer geen zielig verhaal over Afrika. Een combinatie van dromen, onbevangenheid, doen en leren. Jouw verhaal was een mooi begin van het nieuwe jaar en was daarnaast een hele goede opstart voor onze nieuwjaarsreceptie in een gemoedelijke sfeer.”
