hi!

My name is Ambre and I am a freelance copy editor and multilingual interpreter with a background in design. Through travel and by growing up between a multitude of cultures at home, I discovered a deeply rooted passion and love for languages, culture and connecting with people.

What are my strengths? I speak fluent Dutch, French, English and Spanish  (and love to use my A2 level Creole, Portugese and Japanese occasionally). My true power lies within my enthusiasm, creativity, commitment to service and familiarity with different cultural experiences. This makes me highly adaptable to any surrounding. I can effortlessly switch between different target groups and tone-of-voice, whilst always making sure the other party feels heard and seen.

work experience

I currently work for the Ministry of Foreign affairs as a consular advisor, where I inform customers worldwide about inquiries such as visa application, travel advice, legalisation, help abroad and nationality in Dutch, English, French and Spanish. The job requires a high level of empathy and cultural awareness.

I have also worked as a freelance interpreter in France, a copywriter for Rotterdam Photo Festival and Schiedam Fotofestival, an assistant English teacher in Santo Domingo and a main animator.

personal projects

In Between is a publication about home, belonging and identity from cross-cultural perspectives. A cross-cultural person has lived in — or and meaningfully interacted with two or more cultural environments for a significant period of time during their developmental years. The concept "cross-cultural" is an umbrella term for biracial, bicultural and multicultural children, but also  for children of expats, refugees, migrants and international adoptees.
