My name is Richard van Alphen (aka Ries).
You might know me from the YouTube program “Mensenmening”. My passion lies within the media, where I would most likely want to expand my career in. SLAM! offers me the opportunity to participate in programs such as Mensenmening, Statements and more. Since I was young I have always been around media and music and I think that is where my passion for this had started.
I am currently working on my own series, From Sexpig To Sixpack. In this series the viewer follows my journey to a six-pack in a weekly video on YouTube.
My dream is to make my own program and making my hobby for presenting my work. My tip for young people who also want to make a career in the media is: keep on living the life of your dreams and you will eventually reach where you want to be.
The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a spanner in the works for my media plans, but I am convinced that despite this temporary situation, I will eventually achieve my goal.
The reason why I am writing this article for Catching Colours is because I like to inspire other people with my story. I think Catching Colours is doing a good job on this.
