Yesss! Marie Claire magazine has been published! Here is the long awaited interview (in Dutch).
12 April 2018
Today I had the photoshoot of Marie Claire Fashion Magazine! Thanks to the great team consisting of fashion photographer Suzanne Rensink, producer Gina Pesulima, make up artist Maaike Beijer and stylist Famke Mesman, it was a wonderful day. These four ladies are not only excellent professionals, but they also have very nice and warm personalities. For these reasons, they immediately made me feel at home so the shoot was a wrap in no time. Unfortunately, I had to give back the beautiful offwhite suit. Luckily, I decided to buy it a few days later :-). I was not so sad to hand over the shoes as I was not able to walk on them …(the evidence of which you can probably see in one of the pictures below). Mid May, the magazine will be in stores with the article about four strong women (next to me, they have portraits of a lawyer, judge and vice detective). I’ll be back on this topic!

Regional newspaper De Limburger has published my piece entitled ‘Attention is the new gold’. Many readers let me know that they recognize this subject – the (impending) lack of personal connection in our digital age – very well.

Just had an interview with magazine Marie Claire about my former job as a public prosecutor and my carreerswitch in order to become a writer for an article called ‘Law & Order’ about women working in law enforcement. The article will be published in April or May, so you’ll have to be patiënt :-).

Because the iconic magazine Harper’s Bazaar ‘enormously admires me on account of the carreerpath that I have taken’, in the spring of 2015 I was chosen to be ‘Woman of the Week’, the start-up phase for the election of ‘Woman of the Year 2015’. With this election, Harper’s Bazaar pays hommage to women who have accomplished something special within their field of expertise. ‘Harper’s Bazaar honours and crowns national and international luminaries: Women who show vision, courage, engagement and style’. Very noble characteristics indeed!
With ten out of fifty nominees there was a trailer recorded on the backseat of a very nice Mercedes and I was one of the happy few. Editor-in-chief Cécile Narinx interviewed me about careerchoices and everything regarding my work as a prosecutor (for the trailer, please click on play below or click on this link:

Unfortunately, on December 14th 2015 I did not win the Award for Harper’s Bazaar Woman of the Year 2015. I admit that my ego found this somewhat of a shame because when you’ve come that far, you also want to win. But I had to concede to the winner, actress Sophie Hilbrand for her tv-show ‘Sophie’s Wrinkles’ (‘Sophie in de Kreukels’). She is a justified winner!
It was very special to be able to have such a great Night. Festively decorated location (Posthoornkerk), Royal Visitor (Princess Marilène), Famous Dutch People (actress Marjolein Keuning, comedian Sanne Wallis de Vries, the legendary talkshow host Sonja Barend – who also got the Lifetime Achievement Award), presenter Sylvana Simons and artist Ans Marcus, to name a few), delicious food, nice company and a wonderful and touching musical performance of singer Wende Snijders (who did a fantastic David Bowie cover of ‘We could be heroes’) and harp player Lavinia Meijer (the last two were also nominees).
Great was the fact that Cécile Narinx showed the public a compilatie of the recorded interviews:
Knowing that I was chosen by Harper’s Bazaar as a nominee together with world famous athlete Dafne Schippers, actresses Birgit and Katja Schuurman, actress and musical star Chantal Janzen, fashion icon Nikkie Plessen, actress Hanna Verboom, politician for animal rights Marianne Thieme and world class actress Carice van Houten, I went back home with pride and my head held high.
So thank you very much, editor-in-chief Cécile Narinx of Harper’s Bazaar for this great honour and the unforgettable night. It was a real pleasure!
