  • Description

    Dear fellow explorers,

    Let me introduce myself shortly to you:

    My name is Jakob. I was born in Belgium in 1996 and I have lived there for the last 25 years. After enjoying my time in primary and secondary school in my hometown, I moved to Ghent to start studying business economics in 2014. The next four years were truly amazing. I got the opportunity to live on my own, discover this beautiful city, go abroad for a semester to Germany and finish my bachelor's and master's degree. I decided to stay in Ghent after finishing my studies and I started working as a (digital) marketing consultant in a start-up company. While having learnt a lot from all the experts at this company, I decided to take some time off in my professional life at the end of 2020 to discover more about myself.

    At this moment in time, I'm still enjoying my time throwing myself into new experiences every day, meeting people from all over the world and just having this feeling of freedom and independence. I really took the time to take a pause and reflect on myself to truly understand what drives me and how I want to live. Of course this is an ongoing process and meeting new people has been the most influential aspect during this search.

    This is why I want to ask you to get in touch with me, so we can have a great talk, arrange an exciting meeting and just connect with each other. We can just grab a coffee, walk around the city, go for a hike, drink some beers and have fun while we're at it. Please hit me up with other ideas as well, that's always exciting!

    The people around me would describe me as a passionate person that - once settled in - does everything to make others laugh and fee

    In short, hit me up! I would love to hear about your stories and plans! Maybe we could even travel together for some time, as I will be travelling by car. So if you need a ride, let me know!
