In 2016, she successfully auditioned for the bachelor studies at the Royal Conservatoire with Theodora Geraets. In the time when she studied in Rotterdam, she joined the Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands for a couple of years. Later on, when she started in The Hague, she also joined the National Youth Orchestra of the Netherlands, for a couple of years.
