Personal and Academic Information

Charlotte was born in Hilversum, the Netherlands, into a so called ‘tennis family’ where all her siblings and parents are highly competitive players. Growing up she spent most of her time on the tennis court together with people that shared the same passion for the game. 


Charlotte comes from a family with two younger brothers and an older sister. She is a spontaneous and cheerful young woman, who interacts easily with other people. When she enters a room, she will not be unnoticed (partly due to her 6,2 ft. height!). Charlotte is a natural athlete and in addition to her tennis, she enjoys field hockey, skiing and swimming. Her other interest is playing the piano.


Academically, Charlotte is an excellent student who is in the top of her senior class at the highest level of high school in the Netherlands (VWO). She has always worked hard to obtain good grades and is aware of the importance of doing well academically for her future. Whether in athletics or academics, Charlotte has a drive and determination that distinguishes her from other students and athletes. She is scheduled to take her SAT and TOEFL test in December 2013. 


Her decision to step out of her comfort zone and leave The Netherlands, away from her family and many friends in order to embark on a journey to The USA to follow her tennis dreams, shows her dedication and willingness to succeed.
