I am Kim Hulshof, a 23-year-old woman from Nieuw-Buinen, the Netherlands. I am proud to call this place my home, where I grew up with my loving parents and sister, nurturing my strength and ambition.
I am a trained teaching assistant, and I chose to use my skills as a childcare worker. I have a deep love for children and believe in the transformative power of education. I see myself as a mentor for the younger generation – they are our future, and helping them is my way of influencing a brighter tomorrow. They say life isn’t all about work, and I couldn’t agree more. My passion and determination led me to win the title of Miss Intercontinental Netherlands 2023, a dream come true. As a self-proclaimed dreamer, I believe that we should never give up on our dreams, no matter the hurdles. I see my title as more than just a crown. I use my platform, ‘Power to Your Truth,’ to support victims of abuse and violence, something I’ve experienced personally. The goal is to help others enduring similar hardships and foster a sense of resilience in them. In essence, I am not just Kim Hulshof, the Miss Intercontinental Netherlands 2023. I am a beacon of hope, a fighter, and an inspiration, showing that it is possible to turn adversity into strength. I represent resilience, passion, and persistent drive – a testament to the power of dreaming big and never backing down.
