Cheryl now lives in the Netherlands, is married and has kids. She works at the groundwater department of Deltares in Utrecht. Next to her work, she considers herself an independent volunteer; meaning that she does what she can to contribute to a better world. RuralWeb is part of that endeavor. Cheryl wants to help people achieve more aided by ICT. Life long learning and teaching as you learn are part of RuralWeb’s philosophies. In that context this blog was started, to allow you to follow what it’s like to learn to vlog.
