Menthe Broeren, Netherlands

Menthe is an avid volunteer who is currently studying medicine in Nijmegen. She also volunteers at the Dutch child helpline, de Kindertelefoon.

Menthe is happiest when she can help people, and so she does the best that she can to help in her community. Nowadays a lot of young people struggle with their mental health, due to more pressure than ever. They are feeling lonely in this digitalised world and child helplines give children the feeling that they are not alone. Menthe’s belief is that every child in the world should have access to someone who listens to them. She believes that no one can do it all on their own and a listening ear makes a major difference!

Previously, Menthe participated in various activities such as fundraising and serving on the youth council at de Kindertelefoon.
