Playing football in the streets of Gouda. And dreaming to become a professional football player. That is what my childhood was about. As little footballplayers you should have real footballnames. So, my friend Pelle became Pelé, Koen changed to Koné and Ward transferred into Wardiola. Of course derived from the famous football player (at the time) Pep Guardiola. I carried this nickname with me from primary school till University and beyond. The name Wardiola reveals my passion for sports, in particular streetfootball. This will be one of the topics that I blog about. Other topics will be related to: my work as Sport for Development officer at the NSA International; my experiences with Participatory Video at InsightShare and the reviews I write on products with a sustainable flavor for MyStyle.
