— My husband and I are the owners of a riding school. We have been teaching riding for 30 years already.
We live in the countryside of Holland. Besides that I am a grey hair 50+ model. And I love travelling around the world for all kinds of modeling assignments. This combination suits me and makes me more than happy!!! The best of two different worlds.
— Enjoy life and keep discovering new things. It’s crucial to take good care of yourself, in good times and bad. Dream big and don’t delay!!!
— My long, grey hair is my best accessory! There are a lot of cosmetic options to stop ageing, but I prefer to do without them or use them as little as possible, because I want to stay as I am. In the Netherlands we are still modest about this, so I think it’s also matters where you live.
— The lack of confidence that we still matter. Right now we can show who we are and share our knowledge with the younger women to learn them to have confidence!!!
— I often have a hard time with ageing: the visible changes combined with the side-effects of the perimenopause are a struggle. I find comfort in the knowledge that I am not alone, women can really help each other, even just by listening to and inspriring each other. Make time to enjoy the things you like to do, be proud and stay positive. I dream big and still have a lot of plans, especially in my role as a model! I am ready to shine! It’s very important to look forward, because there is our future!!!
