Passion for progress

After successfully completing her studies in Neuropsychology and Journalism and Media at the University of Amsterdam, Amber works as a presenter/journalist at BNNVARA. She is the face of the critical consumer programme Kassa. Together with director Hesdy Lonwijk (National Film Academy, Lichting 2007), she made a six-part documentary series 'Alles is famiri' on Suriname ; the country of her ancestors, for NPO2/BNNNVARA. In addition, as vice-chair of BNNVARA's Works Council, she makes a strong case for diversity & inclusion and sustainability. Her leadership is characterised by a positive and critical attitude combined with a passion for progress and social equality. For example, she is committed to young creators in the media world, because she sees that not everyone gets the same opportunities.
