This is Boukje. A Lekkernassûh’er since 2021
“I’m Boukje, I’m 45 years old and my child hood hero is Pippi Langkous . In fact she still is my hero: independent, funny, brave, smart, adventurous, creative and her own authority. I was first trained as a building engineer at TU Delft, after a big world trip of 15 months I decided I’d rather work with people and got a degree in and became a Maths teacher. While teaching Math I was missing the arts and later on in life studied at different art academies, finishing Fine Arts at KABK in 2019, where I was lucky enough to do part of my graduation at Oerol festival. The best festival I know!
I’m with Lekernassûh since about two months. One day I walked passed the gymzaal on Wednesday afternoon and, since I already heard about it from friends, I decided to see if they needed volunteers. Since I don’t work anymore as a teacher, because I became too tired to handle big classes of teenagers due to my MS, with which I got diagnosed about 3 years ago, I was looking for some volunteer work. Even more so now that the Filmhuis is closed and I can’t volunteer there either.
I applied and was very happy to find vacancies on the bike transport team, so since February 17th I’m a happy biker and a happy consumer . I really like the rich taste of the fresh and locally produced organic veggies and cheeses and I’m discovering all kind of veggies I didn’t even know before, getting handy recipes from very friendly fellow volunteers.”
