I was born with a cyanotic congenital heart disease: univentricle heart/tricuspid atresia with pulmonary stenosis. This basically means that the right ventricle was not developed. Also the great vessels pulmonary artery & aorta arise from the incorrect ventricle. I have had three open heart surgeries and many catheterizations. I went to a normal school and studied human resource management.
I work as a communication specialist for the Heartcentre at Amsterdam UMC, I am a columnist for ICT&Health magazine and I am Co Founder & Owner of Heart4Research.
