Jiska Fokkert has joined the Foundation Academy of Amsterdam as a volunteer. She will assist FAA in writing newsletters and will keep our friends, students, employees, and sponsors up to date on FAA's newest developments. Jiska describes herself as follows:
"My name is Jiska Fokkert, I am 38 years old and I live in Utrecht. I moved here 18 years ago to study psychology at Utrecht University, where I got my Masters degree.
I also go to church here in Utrecht. Someone at church told me about the Foundation Academy of Asmterdam, the work that they do and that they were looking for someone to write the Newsletter. So, here I am, volunteering to write the Newsletter! I am excited to start doing this, to get to know the Academy, it’s teachers and students. And I hope to be a valuable part of the work that is being done at and through the Academy in peoples lives. I enjoy hearing peoples stories and writing them down to share them with others. I have always had an interest in the individual person and what drives someone. I hope that through sharing these stories more people will get involved with the Foundation Academy and more people will benefit from it’s work. And enjoy studying as much as I did, and still do."
