I grew up on a base -and softball field as both my parents played the sport and I was always on the field during the weekends. Naturally I wanted to play Softball as well. I started when I was 6 years old.

Pitching was something I loved to do and it became my favorite position. I am a RHP who feels absolutely comfortable in the circle. I played many (European) tournaments and in the top youth leagues in The Netherlands. In 2021 I got the opportunity to enter to the Talent Team NL program in Amserterdam, leaving home at the age of 16 was a big but exciting step for me.

This summer I had the honor to play for my country in the European U18 Championship. Currently I play with Twins Oosterhout in the 2nd division.
