About me:

My name is Marith van Dijk, originally from Gouda (yes, from the cheese) but am currently living in The Hague. I am a highly-motivated student who firmly believes that there are learning opportunities with each new day. I am open-minded and like to challenge myself and others. Loyalty and a deeply-rooted sense of responsibility are at the core of who I am.

I enjoy traveling and exploring new countries and cultures, like to play tennis and love music ( I play the harp and piano).

Why I participate:

The New Business Challenge gives me the opportunity to develop my entrepreneurial skills, but most of all to contribute to address important societal challenges. I believe that cooperating in diverse groups is key to a successful approach towards intercultural and interdisciplinary issues. The New Business Challenge is great opportunity to do so.


I hope that me and my team can find a concrete and realistic solution to our business case which will contribute to furthering the goals of Closing the Loop and has positive impact on the Ghanaian society. I wish to learn more about the Ghanaian culture and make friendships that last forever. Most of all, I hope we will have a great time and will look back at a unique and amazing experience which we will cherish for the rest of our lives.
