At the age of 10, the realisation suddenly struck me that I could simply not become a doctor or a lawyer. How could I if was always busy daydreaming about other worlds, making up stories? I knew then that it has always been and that it will always be my ambition to create experiences. Years later, I found Attractions & Theme Parks Management! In theme parks, these fantasised worlds are brought to life. It was a match and without much doubt I enrolled in the program. My name is Daniëlle Maas and I will be writing about the second year.

Hello! My name is Chantal Kelders and I’m a 2nd year student at the Attraction and Theme park Management track at NHTV. As Mr. Walt Disney once said: “You can dream, create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world, but it requires people to make the dream a reality.” In the future, I want to be the person that can make dreams a reality for other little girls like I once was. For Discover ATPM I collect the stories from Alumni students and professionals from the industry.
