With a deep-rooted love for volleyball and a desire to make a meaningful impact, Qionah has become an integral part of LKTBF's mission to empower communities worldwide.

Qionah's Journey with LKTBF:

Qionah's journey with LKTBF began with a simple desire to align her passion for volleyball with a purposeful mission. As a full-time intern, she dove headfirst into supporting the Volley Beyond Borders program in the Netherlands.

Week after week, Qionah dedicated her time to coaching volleyball at a refugee centre, using the sport as a vehicle for connection and empowerment.

Under the guidance of LKTBF's Volley Beyond Borders Head Coach Marloes Lugtenberg and Founder/Captain of Community Lesley de Jonge, Qionah's impact grew exponentially.

She played a pivotal role in levelling up the program and creating a brand new manual that enhanced the quality and reach of LKTBF's initiatives.

Making an Impact in Colombia:

But Qionah's commitment to making a difference didn't stop there. With an extra passion for storytelling and photography, she embarked on a special impact trip to Colombia.

Collaborating with LKTBF's contacts in the region, Qionah set out to document the inspiring stories of the projects and communities touched by LKTBF's work.
