|Lieke Meijer (Windesheim)
My name is Lieke Meijer and I am 19 years old. When I was 6 years old I started with ballets and I loved it! When I was 8 years old I also started playing volleyball. Unfortunately I had to quit with ballets because at secondary education it was a bit too much to sport five times a week. I played volleyball until last year, but had to quit, again because of my education. I had to travel three hours every day and couldn’t make the trainings on time. I still like to watch volleyballmatches and would love to start again after my study.
Since I moved to Zwolle last summer, I live on my own. Every weekend I go home to my parents to work at a supermarket and relax a bit. When I’m in Zwolle I love to have dinner with friends, or just go for a cup of tea together. I think it’s very nice to decide by myself for example what I’m doing when, where and with who. One of the benefits of living on my own! I don’t have a lot of spare time, but in my free time I also love reading, walking with the dog, dancing and watching movies with a nice glass of wine. I’m very excited to participate in this program this summer and I’m looking forward to it!

Every day I am going to Nijmegen by bike, bus and train. It’s about three quarters of an hour.Three times a week, I play korfball. I’m a korfball teacher of little children. I really like to do that. I also play tennis. In my free time I also love watching movies, reading and talking with friends.I really like psychomotoric therapy. The combination of sports and helping people with their problems is lovely.In Denmark, I hope to learn from the people I’ll meet and the things I’ll see. I’m already very excited to go to Denmark! See you in August!|
|Martine Geerts (Windesheim)
My name is Martine Geerts and I’m 22 years old. Since I’ve started studying psychomotor therapy I moved to Zwolle. I live there for 3 years now. I grew up in a small village in the north of Holland. In the weekend you can mostly find me there. Before I moved to Zwolle I had two favorite sports. Ice speed skating and cycling. The first I did for like 13 years but unfortunally I don’t have the time to practice a lot and I made the choice to focus on my study instead of my sport. I miss practicing sports in my free time so I’m happy that my study gives me the chance to still enjoy sports but in another way. Interacting with people while taking advantage of sports and the things you see in the movement of people motivates me. It motivates me to get to know the story behind the person.I’m looking forward to the program in Denmark and meeting all new people. I agree with Linda in having a great time! See you all in August!
|Michael Taen (HAN)
Hello! As you can see my name is Michael. I live in Nijmegen for 21 years now. That’s my whole life. In these years I have practiced many sports like basketball, rugby, soccer and fitness. But while practicing these sports I have always been interested in martial arts, so I do kraf maga and kung fu for 2 years and jiu-jitsu for 10 years. I also train children in jiu-jitsu from the age of 8 to 14 years old every Friday night. Other hobby’s of mine are partying and traveling, but mostly partying. I’m in my second year of PMT (Psycho-motoric therapy) and I still like it very much. The fact that I keep developing myself as a person and can help others doing the same , is a great motivation! Well I’m looking forward to our little trip and I’m exited to meet all the other participants.
|Linda Peters (Windesheim)
My name is Linda Peters, 20 years old. Beside my study I’ve been a very enterprising person. I’m a volleyball teacher of children at an age of 10 going 13 years old. It’s interesting to learn them more things about the volleyball techniques. I’d played volleyball for 10 years but because of my study it wasn’t possible anymore. I also work with a handicapped girl. I learn her how to travel from Zwolle to Leiden so she can travel on her own in the future. I really enjoy working with people who are mentally and/or physically disabled and I believe sports and movement is very important for development. But also the awareness is very important. The little things are so important to see; the way people look at you, the smile on there face when you help them. I’d really like to recognised these little things I caused. I’m looking forward seeing you in Denmark!We are going to have a great time
|Rienk Jager (Windesheim)
My name is Rienk Jager and I’m 22 years old. For many years I played soccer, but two years ago I had to make a difficult decision to quit because of school and work. Lucky for me I can compensate the exercises on school. In my first year we did al lot of sports, but during this Second year it decreased. Soccer is my number one sport to play, but to be honest. I like to play every kind of team sport. For example basketbal, volleyal and baseball. Every Thursday and Saturday I work in a clothing shop called WE fashion. My first priority is to help somebody with a suit. Besides that I have to make sure that the shop looks nice and tidy. I do this for a year now and I love the interaction between the people. Because you’re not done in a couple of minutes we spend some time together to find the perfect suit.
I live in Zwolle now for two years and I love the life of being a student. Once a week some classmates come together and meet in a bar to drink and chat. Besides that I love to make my one decisions when it comes to what I eat for dinner or my daily schedule after school.My family consist of my father, my mother and my brother who is 20 years of age.

|Ivana Nagtegaal (HAN)
My name is Ivana Nagtegaal and I am 22 years of age (when I will be in Denmark after July). I live in the Netherlands, where I grew up in a small town in the South of the country. Nowadays, I study in Nijmegen, in this town I live on my own.
After secondary school, I joined the junior college CIOS (sport academy) with a specialization in special education and tennis. After graduation, I continued in Nijmegen the study “psychomotor therapy”. Last year I completed my first year, I am now in second grade. Caracteristic for myself; I am athletic, independent, enthusiastic and I am eager to learn. My hobbies are tennis, soccer and lacrosse. Every year, I go skiing as well.
I got the opportunity to come to Denmark which seems to me a unique chance to not only expand my network and knowledge but also learn more about this country and the different views on PMT of the countries of this educational initiative, an experience I will be able to use during school in the future and will always carry with me in my future work. See you all in Denmark!!
|Geertje van ValkenburgMy name is Geertje van Valkenburg and I’m 23 years old. I hope to finish my study in psychomotor therapy very soon. I’m in the fourth year now! I spent my youth in a middle-sized place called Houten. Houten is near the city Utrecht in the middle of the Netherlands. Since a year I’m living in Utrecht, together with two friends of mine. In the third year of the study I did a 10 month internship in an institution for mentally handicapped people with highly disturbed behaviour and psychotic disorders, a very complex subject group. Examples of the psychoses that I encountered included: schizophrenia, personality disorders, depression, autism and impulse-control disorders. I had a very fulfilling experience at this institution as I learned so much about working as a psychomotor therapist and about myself. I really like the subject group I worked with during my internship because those people are so pure! I would like to work with this subject group in future! And than something about my interests. I like to spent time with my family and friends! For example having a drink with them or watching movies. I have played volleyball for years and y also like walking and cycling. I’m looking forward to the Accession Workshop Denmark! The theme of the Accession workshop, rehabilitation, has not had so much attention during my studies, so I’m very curious. See you there!|
