Thessaly Zimmerman is a young woman that speaks and reads 4 different languages. At the age of 19, Thessaly moved to Amsterdam to pursue her studies at Hogeschool Utrecht in the Netherlands where she studied International Communications and Media and earned her bachelor’s degree in Communications.
In Aruba, Thessaly works as a social media manager at a digital marketing agency. She is a vocal advocate for mental health and has been working together with different health organizations and the government of Aruba to work on a campaign that aims to create awareness for mental health. Helping the youth is something that Thessaly loves to do and does this by forming part of a youth empowering group, that talks about different topics and teaches them self-love, empowerment, and how to be a future leader of the society.
Aside from her philanthropic work, Thessaly is an avid athlete and has always loved sports and was fortunate enough to excel at this by being the number 1 ranked tennis player for many years in her age category. She has represented her country at numerous international competitions, which she did with great honor.
Next to tennis, she also did track and field for many years where she excelled at a high level, by winning various medals during her competitions. To relax and recharge, Thessaly loves to travel and has been to 26 countries and loves to learn about the people, culture, food, and dance styles. Thessaly is creative and driven, and her dream job is to be a TV host or actress.
The Aruban government has appointed me as the Ambassador of Aruba. With this platform I aim to become a role model to the youth, who is always there to help and guide them in their time of need. Not only that I will further my advocacy for mental health together with the government of Aruba, to create mental health awareness.
I speak and read 4 languages and have traveled to 26 countries, making Israel the 27th country I’ll be visiting and it will denfinitely not become the last country. I aspire to see as much of the world as possible. Traveling gives you the knowledge you don't just learn from reading a book, but you get it from seeing the world and meeting new people and learning from them.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Communications which was earned during my study abroad in the Netherlands and now I currently work as a Social Media Manager at a Digital Marketing Agency.
