My name is Lisa Bakker, I’m 20 years old and I’m a third year aquatic ecotechnology student at the HZ University of Applied Sciences in Vlissingen. When I was at school, I received an email from my academy, that informed all the students about the wetskills organisation and about the coming event in China. When reading about it, I suddenly got really excited! When I finished reading the email, I didn’t hesitate and immediately started writing my motivation, which was very easy.
I really like learning about water, nature, and also about different cultures. So this event would be great for me, since this is the combination of my top interests! And even better, since I’m a really big fan of Asia, seeing that the event is going to be held in China made it perfect!
When I am there, I would really love to learn from different people and different cultures. I would like to gain experience by working with people who have their own way of thinking, and learning from that. This is why I am really looking forward to be working in a team to do the water challenges.
I would also like to see what China is doing with their water, since the most things I have learned at my study is about the Netherlands. I am looking forward to learn and experience new things. I already know this trip is going to be truly amazing! An event that’s all about my interests, and visiting China that’s on top of my bucket list. I am really looking forward to it and I can’t wait!
