After a hard selection process, I've been chosen to compete in the final event at the Dutch 'Young Professional of the Year (YPY)' election. In this event I will compete as only expat with 22 other Young Professionals. From now until February 28th, you can vote for me at Protected content . I would be honoured if you would vote for me! For this support, the company I work for, Nuon ( Protected content ), will donate 1 Euro for every vote for me to the International Red Cross.
Your vote will not only give attention to expats working and living in Berlin and surroundings and to the International Red Cross, but also to the 'Step-2-Work' Project, which I have set up. This project offers long term unemployed young people without education a new chance to make something out of their lives by offering them the possibility to gather working experience. This project has already enabled Protected content people to have a positive future again!
Please help to support this project by voting for me on the main website. Because it is a Dutch website, I've included some instructions:
1. Go to Protected content
2. Look for the box under my photo that says "STEM OP RAYMOND"
3. Fill in your e-mailadress (Naam = Name / Reactie = Reaction, neither of these fields need to be completed if you do not wish to leave a message on the website)
4. Click the box "Ik ga akkoord met de voorwaarden" ("I agree to the terms & conditions")
5. Click on "STEM!", which means "vote"
