Synty joined TEDXCapeTown in January 2020, just after she graduated with a BBA in Tourism Management. Being an adventure seeker, Synty decided to embark on a new journey by accepting a job offer in Cape Town as a Dutch technical support in claims administration. Synty is originally from the beautiful island called CuraƧao, so you are bound to find this island girl at the beach at any given moment in her free time. She also loves the thrill of discovering new hotspots, cultures and countries. Synty is deeply passionate about using her experiences/skills to empower and inspire and the people around her. The TED Talk by Celeste Headlee called 'Don't find a job, find a mission' describes the essence and driver of Synty's motives.
