I was born on 12 November 2001 in Groningen, Groningen. Ever since I can remember, sports have had a fondness for me.

I have practiced various sports of Judo and hockey. In March 2013, my father signed up for the Veneboerloop, Drachten. This was the deciding factor and I had found my passion.

When I started with athletics I trained twice a week, in 2014 we slowly increased the training work to four times a week. At the moment I train five to six times a week.

My specialties are the 3000, 5000 and 10000 meters.
