I arrived in China in 2002 for an internship. These few months in Beijing changed my life. After graduating in Law and Politics in 2004 I returned to China and co-founded Hutong School. Since then, I am devoted to developing an organization driven by human values and offering young people from all over the world an experience that will impact their life durably.

I´m from Belgium. I spent 6 years of my life in China studying Chinese, traveling around, meeting new people from all over the world, doing an internship in Beijing, and finally setting up the Hutong School in 2005, which later acquired Internship Network Asia. I find it extremely rewarding to see young people from all over the world, who are curious about China but often know nothing more than stereotypes and clichés, discover actual life in China thanks to our programs. In addition, it´s great to see how a stay of a few months gives a great boost to the personal development and self-confidence of our participants and prepares them much better for life in the 21st century, the Chinese century in a truly globalized world.
