In Her Own Words...
"My name is Larisa Leeuwe, I am 22 years old and studying law student at the University of Aruba.
I speak 4 languages: English, Spanish, Dutch and Papiamento. I love reading, learning foreign languages, traveling, watersports, dancing and practicing martial.
The values I carry close to my heart are; honesty, hard work, determination, humbleness, integrity, tolerance and respect. My desire to care for the less fortunate started from a young age. It brings me joy to help less fortunate people in my country and all over the world.
My future goal is to graduate from law school and further educate myself as a lawyer to help less fortunate families."
