Jorein was born and raised in the Netherlands, but she has always had a strong desire to explore beyond its borders. She has travelled through rural areas of Thailand and Malaysia, currently lives in Paris and plans to move to Northern Italy soon. Speaking of going beyond borders, her academic background in law, political philosophy and international relations allows her to reflect critically on border-crossing issues such as human rights violations and climate change. She is particularly interested in the protection of children's rights, as she believes they hold the key to the future. Besides that, Jorein is passionate about creative writing, singing and botanical drawing. She dreams of combining her passion for creative writing with her academic knowledge, so that her words can become a voice for those who cannot voice their own needs.
