Well, I guess that’s the end of that then eh?
Being on ‘The Voice Australia’ has been a seriously amazing experience.
I came to Australia with a goal, to entertain you, make you cry(in a good way) and get to know as many of you as I could.
I feel like I met that goal, and am really pleased with what I have accomplished.
Sure, I didn’t win the show. But that doesn’t matter.
All my life I have been a bit of a drifter. Not belonging anywhere. Don’t speak dutch well enough to be dutch, don’t speak aussie enough to be an Aussie. Its been a blessing and a curse really. I like to consider myself a bit of a world citizen. But it gets really lonely sometimes.
But how things have changed!
I’m so glad I took the risk of leaving everything behind to get to know you guys. People have been coming up to me on the streets with smiles on their faces, telling me that Iv’e done a great job and wishing me good luck. Every time I turn on facebook I get chat requests from people and we stay up late in the night just talking away about all sorts of things. I have really enjoyed getting to know you Australia!
So what happens now? I can’t really say. I do look forward to seeing my fiancé again and playing the instruments I left back in Holland. I have been living out of a suitcase for the last 6 months and it has been taking its toll on me. But I’ll tell you something, when people ask me where I want to live. I’ll look them in the eye and say
‘I still call Australia home.’
Thank you for accepting me in to your hearts and TV time. Your the best Australia, this has been an experience I will never forget.
