Food Trend Reporter: Maaike van de Beek

Hi guys,

Just a little info on who I am!I am a sociable, open-minded, curious, and enthusiastic person. eager to learn and driven to find opportunities in life to develop myself. I enjoy being surrounded by positive people whom inspire and educate me to be a better person. I have developed my interest for digital marketing through the specializations I have followed. These specializations, Media Marketing and Digital Media Strategies, have given me insight on how creative you can be within this sector and what I could do in the future. I enjoy working in Marketing in the fashion industry. My internship at G-Star RAW has motivated me to develop and grow further within this industry in the near future. In my opinion, the industry is dynamic, modern, and inventive, which most fits my profile.

Aside of this, I like to follow current issues on living a healthy lifestyle and other similar subjects. This interest has developed due to my inspiring mother and sister, whom are both “food-nerds”. They have illustrated different cooking techniques and showed the fun side of it.

In the last few years I have developed a passion for writing too. Several courses at the Amsterdam University of Applied Science have taught me on how to express myself, be creative and use words to inspire others. Through this opportunity, I was selected to write a blog for The website is one of the biggest online platforms on online trends, tips and tricks. This experience has developed my creativity and has given me the energy to find more similar opportunities.

And I am very curious who is reading my stuff! So leave me a comment below saying where you’re from.

Sincerely, Maaike
