The only male student in the YTP@Work team and 4th-year Tourism student specialized in Tour Operating. In my spare time I play several musical instruments, I like to go out for dinner and love a good pint of beer. The languages I speak are German, English, and a little bit of French, Spanish, and Chinese. However, I am at my best when I speak my regional dialect. After I graduate I really want to go to Australia. The Deals I am looking for at MIYO-Deals are all about food and goodies.
My name is Vivian Bouwmans, 4th-year International Tourism Management Consultancy student. I do not have a favourite holiday destination because I think that every country is unique in its own way. However, I would really love to make a road trip through Africa, because I have never been to this continent before. The deals I am looking for at MIYO-Deals are food, activities, and gadgets.
Fabiën van Deijne
4th-year student Tourism Management. I am 21 years old, so probably the youngest in the team. In my spare time, I like to drink beer and be my crazy self. Aruba is the destination where I picked up my crazy lifestyle. I’m looking for makeup and food deals, especially sushi deals!
4th-year Tourism student specialized as Travel Trade Manager. I like good food, spending time with my friends and traveling. Learning foreign languages is something I’m really interested in. Therefore learning Italian is on my bucket list. I fell in love with Australia during my road trip, so this is my favorite destination. The deals I am looking for at MIYO-Deals are mostly city trips and food.
I am currently working at the Academy for Tourism, teaching tour operating and communication. I am also the coordinator of YTP@Work of which MIYO-Deals is a part. The deals I am focusing on are activities, food, and wellness. Also, the gadgets are very interesting because quite often they are very useful but I’ve never heard of them before. The price makes the deals very tempting to buy, but a good deal gives a good feeling, so why not? I hope you find something nice at MIYO-Deals that will give you a good feeling as well.
Maike van Breda
Supervisor at YTP@Work. In my spare time, I like to walk my dog with my family in the woods, I like to cook with friends and go to the movies. I love traveling, but I also enjoy the beautiful spots in The Netherlands and Belgium. The MIYO-Deals I usually buy are deals in Breda, activities, and food. I already discovered a few nice lunch spots!
Teacher concept- and product development and marketing communication. I really love traveling, and when I am not on holiday I enjoy going to museums and playing tennis. I love to cook and to enjoy good food. I think the gadgets are the most interesting category at MIYO-Deals.
With ten years of marketing experience in the accommodation sector (Center Parcs), I am specialized in database marketing and E-business. During my spare time, I sing in a choir and on Sunday mornings I like to ride my mountain bike or go for a jog. In the summer I like to go to the Pyrenees, where I have worked as a tourist guide for many years. Furthermore, I enjoy city trips to Valencia, Berlin of Paris.
Lecturer Online Marketing / E-business, supervisor for YTP@Work and MIYO-Deals. My passion for travel has brought me all over the world, but there’s still plenty on my to-do-list. Thanks to MIYO-Deals I have managed to expand my travel gadgets collection with all sorts of travel.
After various commercial management positions at small and large international tourism companies, education appealed a lot to me. I have been working at NHTV as a teacher for more than 10 years now. My focus is on the use of (social) media and the digitalization of the travel industry. Creating experiences and selling them. After doing a Master in Media Innovation I now also work on business development, research and innovation at our Academy for Digital Entertainment where I am mostly busy with setting up projects in the field of Virtual Reality and Gaming. This nice combination allows me to bring research, education and business togetheras a supervisor at YTP@Work. I like to have a drink with friends, visit a city, try new things and I love tennis, running and skiing.
