Marieke van Asten Author | Founder | Speaker
Marieke van Asten, born in the Netherlands, lives on the beautiful Caribbean Island of Dominica, where she founded the NGO Breadfruit House of Dominica Foundation.
Marieke’s trip to Costa Rica in 2010 was life-changing. Volunteering in a small city in the mountains marks the beginning of the life she lives now.
Working with children in the small rural school sparked so much joy; she knew this would be her future. The future would tell her how and where.
