Hi there! Let me introduce myself! My name is Isabella van der Gaag, a Rotterdam based Arts enthusiast and graduated student with a BA degree in Arts and Culture Studies. I have worked as an Online Marketing Manager at Bertus Distribution (Music Distributor). I was responsible for the online marketing strategy of the record label Butler Records, the web design for the record label as well as the design of information sheets about new releases (among others). The last couple of years, I have spent some time as a volunteer at multiple Dutch Festival organizations as well. I love working in the Arts and Culture sector!

I also love to travel. I have already been on Erasmus exchange to KU Leuven Belgium as part of my BA Arts and Culture degree. During this period I traveled a lot through Europe, I have been for example to Denmark, Luxembourg, France, and Portugal. My last trip was going to Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, Panama, Cuba, Mexico, The United States, and Canada. You are able to follow my (travel) adventures on my blog.

Because of my passion for arts, cultures, and traveling I want to improve my intercultural communications skills. Therefore, I am currently a master student in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology in Leiden, The Netherlands. My personal goal is to make this world a better place for everyone around me.
