Although it has not always been the case, sport became part of my lifestyle once I noticed how it really helped me feel more energetic and focused throughout the day. I’ve tried a lot of sports before I came to this realization: tennis, water polo, handball, rowing, running and survival.
In 2010, I started to play rugby in Delft. The moment I played my first match, I knew this was different than all the other sports I’ve ever played. It is remarkable how a sport can teach you valuable traits, like resilience, discipline and respect, and help form one’s character. The action photos however taught me I have some serious work to do on my photogenic-skills.
The rugby-club also gave me the chance to broaden my skills even further by offering me the chance to be part of the board in 2011. During this year, I acted as the secretary of the club.
