Community means people and stories. The dynamics of diversity are an essential part. Chabad on Campus spotlights every week another member of the community with each their own story and vision.
My grandfather always describes me as “Sem is a tireless go-getter, does not give up on his goals, is interested in others and is also very funny”. I have achieved a lot that I am very proud of in the past three years. For example, I acted in the Dutch television series: Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden (GTST).
I am hardworking and willing to give up a lot for my dream. When I receive a casting call, for instance, I quickly clear out my schedule. In addition, I am a real go-getter, which is an advantage for this profession since you get to hear “No” more often than “Yes”.
I graduated as a film actor and am currently following two part-time studies: the TV Academy and the Nederlandse Acteursschool. My ambition is to become a successful actor, in which I can play many beautiful roles.
I want to tell stories, address societal issues, entertain, emotionalize, and make people think.
Being Jewish is a unifying factor for me and it connects me with many others that I might never have known otherwise. Being Jewish is something that is always there, something to hold on to. There is often a click when you meet Jews from other places, such as at Chabad On Campus, who share many of the same experiences and rituals.
