Hi! My name is Esther, 23 years old and I am a graphic design graduate. Right now,I am taking a sabbatical with the intention to travel a lot. What I like most about travelling is to discover other cultures. Also, I love to explore nature to give myself a break from the Belgian city life. I am in love with breathtaking, infinite landscapes and sunsets. In my free time I like to do sports - I practice kick boxing at the moment - attend concerts and festivals and work on creative diy projects.
The last 5 years, I’ve been studying communication, cultural studies and graphic design. In my third year of my communication degree, I went on an exchange and studies in Montreal, Canada. I’ve always been a traveler but after this experience I discovered the beauty of getting to know other cultures.
A year later, when I was studying cultural studies, I had to organise an exhibition from scratch with four other students. I loved this experience and think it represents my organisational skills. Last year, I volunteered in an orphanage in Kenya. I helped the kids in their daily activities, helped cooking, sewing their uniforms, etc. These experiences also improved my language skills (French in Montreal, English in Kenya and while coworking with international students for the exhibition). Because of my degree in graphic design, I know how to use the Adobe programs Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop. I also love to take photos, especially from nature.
The last 2,5 years, I worked in a clothing shop as a student, where I learnt how to be customer oriented and improved my interpersonal and communicative skills. Before this job, I worked in the event and catering sector.
