Only two months into 2020 and already my life has taken a significant turn. Ever since I published the Perseverance-issue and volunteered in refugee camps on Lesvos, I started re-evaluating what I’ve been doing in the past couple of years. This resulted in me procrastinating a fair bit when it came to starting new projects, like a new issue of Let’s Explore Magazine. More on that later. But it also gave me the time to seriously look at what I’ve managed to create so far and in which direction my journey is heading. It’s time to break the silence, these are my goals and plans for the near and distant future. Things are going to change, that’s for sure.

The first week of July is almost here, which means I will be volunteering in a refugee camp on Lesvos. I'll be going with a humanitarian organization called Because We Carry, whose slogan is (loosely translated from Dutch): there’s no time to dick around, make a difference by doing. This means handing out food, build shelter for those who don’t have any, and basically be a human being and connect with other human beings on a humane level. 

Let’s Explore Magazine as a project is pretty much a reflection of who I am and what makes me tick. Over the course of making the Perseverance issue, contributions evolved into more socially aware type of stories and, besides that, my own interests and intentions started to shift as well. This has lead me to look for more depth in both my work and my passion project that is this magazine.
