Wes grew up in a small village in the south of the Netherlands. Never really satisfied with the area he was living in, he used to take trips to bigger cities in Europe as a teen and as soon as he graduated high school flew to Italy for a solo trip that lasted a month. Almost inevitably, the next step was flying to Bangkok in August 2014 to start training Muay Thai, or Thai boxing, daily. After training he traveled around Asia, experiencing different cultures and eating his way through them. One of his highlights with the JUMP! Foundation was visiting an organic farm and witnessing students getting excited about food and its origins, a thing he is passionate about himself! Wes is glad to be involved with the JUMP! Foundation and hopes to be able to be involved with many more programs in the future.
