My name is Marlies and for the rest of the summer, you can find me at the WE LIKE YOU office! Ready to get to know me? Let’s go!
How would you describe yourself? I would describe myself the same way as most people would; Véry talkative and always happy! My motto in life is to live each day like it’s your last and to follow your heart and instincts. I strongly believe in gut feeling and I am always shooting for the stars. Aim for the best!
What’s the most interesting thing about you that we wouldn’t learn from your resume alone? One of the many things that made me into the person I am today is the fact that I live alone and have been living alone since the day I turned 18. Besides trying my best to obtain my degree, I also work my ass off! Some call me a workaholic, as I work 4 jobs a week, yet there is ALWAYS time for fun!
What inspires you? Justin Bieber! JK (yet I used to be the biggest ‘belieber’ ever, no joke!) But really, anybody that is ambitious and chases their dreams!
What’s the best piece of advice someone has given to you? ‘Think about yourself and stop caring what other people think!’ For the most part of my life, I was so fed up trying to please everyone, trying to be liked… but at some point, someone very dear to me made me realize that, at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is your own happiness!
What made you choose WE LIKE YOU for your internship? The first thing that drew me to WE LIKE YOU is the fact that it is a very young and openminded team! Their task list really offered me the chance to learn and thus be prepared for my 6-month international internship (I know, sad right? Not at WE LIKE YOU… 😟)
Your first day as a #WLYIntern. In one word, how do you feel? STRESSSSSS! Yet as soon as I entered, the team made me very feel welcome and briefed me well enough to know how to get started.
Are you a Social Media fanatic? “Marlies, do you ever NOT have your phone by your side?” Whoops… The first thing I do when I wake up I grab my phone and from that moment on it does not leave my side! Even when social media is dead and I’ve seen all the content, I’m continuously scrolling through it!
How much time do you spend on social media? A lot… Too much even…
Who or which brand do you like the most on Instagram? Anything with cute babies or nice clothes!
What do you think about the future of social media? Social media is constantly changing. You really have to jump on the train, if not you will stay behind! A lot is yet to come!
What gets you up in the mornings? Nothing, I loooooove to sleep!
Current song on repeat? Hoe het danst – Marco Borsato! I know… 🤦🏼♀️
How would you describe you having a good time? Friends, food, wine, cocktails, music, and dancing! Oh, and not to forget, sunshine!
What are your favorite apps? Instagram, definitely! And to spill and absorb all of the tea, twitter!
What is your favorite TV-show? Lucifer! A hot guy in a suit, what else?
What is your favorite place to visit in the world? My favorite place to visit in the world where I’ve already been? Florida! My potential favorite place in the world? Anywhere in Australia or Lapland, for sure! Oh, and not to forget, my bed! Love paying it visits! 😍
Which kind of music genre do you ‘dig’? Rock/ Pop Rock/ Alt Rock! And to get the party started? Schlagerhits or throwback 80 s’/ 90 s’ songs!
Last but not least, how do people recognise you? Mostly because I am loud and annoying. Ha! Whoops!
