So… my name is Jolanda, but for the past 6 years I went by the name Jade on the Internet because I got tired of the way people pronounce my name in other coutries. Eventually I got over it and started going by my own name again. I’m 100% Dutch, although my father’s family has roots in Hungary and France.
I studied Educational Psychology and graduated in July 2016, so I have a title (Master of Science) of which I’m very proud. Currently I’m working full time at a company that develops e-Learning for Syrian refugees and other foreigners, so that they can learn Dutch.
I’m that type of girl that usually likes some alone time with a good book, a Disney movie or TV series. Having some alone time is pretty hard with a fiancé around the house, but it’s lovely to spend time with him too of course. His name is Rick, we met in September 2015 and it was love at first sight. He is a mechanic, and just about the funniest and sweetest guy you will ever meet. A little hyperactive at times, but then again never boring. We got engaged on July 26, 2016, in Walt Disney World, Florida.
And oh yes, I’m probably the biggest ‘Disnerd’ (Disney nerd) you can think of. Movies, books, CD’s, even some clothes and two pairs of Mickey ears (purchased in the parks), I have it all and I’m never ashamed of it. I even have my own little section in the house filled with Disney stuff that Rick can’t touch, haha.
When it comes to music, I have a few artists and bands that I will always adore. Ayumi Hamasaki, Koda Kumi, Kalafina, and Michael Jackson are my absolute favorites. Depending on my mood, I also enjoy music by Imagine Dragons, Demi Lovato, Phil Collins, SHINee, 80s music, and general music you hear on the everyday radio.
