Author Juliette Kwee
Born in the Netherlands, Juliette Kwee followed her passion for people by pursuing her master’s degree in Social & Organisational Psychology at the University of Leiden in order to become an instrumental member and advisor to numerous Netherlands-based commercial & non-governmental organizations with both local and international objectives.
Her most notable as well as most recent commitment involves representing Dutch NGO Filibata in the underdeveloped country of the Philippines where she actively engages in providing guidance and support to children from abusive environments.
What has created a lasting impression on Juliette most is peoples ability to overcome adversity – even in the most seemingly stifling and oppressive environments.
Through her active engagement with these communities, she has joyously discovered that the stimulation of hidden as well as obvious talents within individual community members has been noticeably more effective than by simply injecting alien resources – generating positive growth in confidence, independence, responsibility and energy. These results are the source of her joy and have set her off into perpetual motion.
Juliette understands that basic human needs transcend race, culture, religion and politics. And if a movement to bring people one step closer to achieving their goals exists, she wants to be a part of it.
