About Fré

always seeing the bright sideHello, it is me: Frerieke van Bree

A Dutch architect who chooses to design smiles. I’ve lived in South Africa for nearly 4 years and have truly found my passions. I love connecting and empowering people!

I started my career as an architect, became a teacher/ trainer (art & leadership and computer skills) to students in underprivileged areas ‘Townships’ around Cape Town, an online media lover, a people-person and a project coordinator for a Non-profit with a focus on Cultural diversity. My father passed away in 2010, which made me move back to The Netherlands. Back in NL, I worked for multiple International Non-Profits as a project manager, started a Masters Degree in Human rights & Development, and kept on doing a lot of personal reflection work.

In 2012, I met Rinse, together we now have 3 children (Thijn 6 years, twins Lize and Juna 3 years). What makes me happy is… connecting with people, surfing, swimming, listening to stories, acting, dancing, watching documentaries, being surrounded by passionate people, learning from youngsters, music, exploring things, surprises, honest people, communication, teaching/training, adventures, a good espresso, and the sun…
