Biography

Noah Moeys (1997) is an ambitious, internationally oriented journalist currently situated in Utrecht, the Netherlands. She is pursuing two bachelor’s degrees: Journalism and Cultural Anthropology at Utrecht University. As a journalist and anthropologist, her main focus is climate and its effects on people. What is happening to the planet and how are people having to deal with the consequences?

Through her upbringing in three different countries – the Netherlands, Norway and Libya – her open-minded interest in the world and its peoples was triggered. During her travels, she came across many stories which deserved to be told and which can make a positive change. As an 18-year old she spent several months living with indigenous peoples in the Amazon rainforest and this further motivated her to look for these hidden stories and communicate them in the right way to the world.

She is a well-disciplined, unique and empathetic young woman who speaks and writes in English, Dutch, Norwegian, Spanish and French. During her first and second year at the School of Journalism, she won the awards for Best Publication and she continues to strive for her best possible work. In 2020 her first book was published: “Zwerkbal en ander quarantaineleed“, about students during the corona-pandemic.
