My name is Merel Ligtelijn. I graduated from the University of Amsterdam in the Human Geography of Developing Countries. Since my studies, I have been active in journalism. I write articles and books, I make exhibitions, and I develop and realise different kinds of projects. In between these activities, I am working on a publication about an Alaskan Inupiat village. I visited the village on several occasions, and I have made it the subject of previous publications.
