Netherlands Netherlands 2015


Currently in her final year at Amsterdam University College as a psychology and anthropology major, Anne finds herself fascinated by the workings of the human mind on a daily basis. To release whatever creative tension ensues from these academic considerations, Anne has participated in several creative writing programs at Oxford University as well as other institutions. The semester she spent at the African Studies faculty of McGill University in Montreal, Canada left her determined to study the manifestations of Africanist thinking in Western popular rhetoric, which resulted in a thesis on representations of Africa in contemporary Dutch children's books. In the future, Anne aspires to work as a policy maker to contribute to altering the status quo of children’s literature in her home country, the Netherlands.
