From a young age on Mirte has been fascinated by people and their stories. Due to her curious nature she is interested in exploring why people behave the way they do. Studying anthropology therefore suited her well. During her studies she was challenged to see from different perspectives and she further developed her critical thinking skills and sense of empathy. Mirte thinks empathy is key to understanding and tolerance, and she thinks these are very necessary to live together harmoniously in a diverse society. She enjoys working on projects with social impact and discovered that building on an inclusive society is what she is most passionate about. As a connector, Mirte likes to use her creativity, enthusiasm and hands-on mentality to contribute to a society where everybody can participate and has a sense of belonging.
