Nadine Orne Van Dijkhorst
My name is Nadine van Dijkhorst. I was born in South Africa and as a young girl, my family immigrated to the United States. We arrived on a cold and icy day in January. As one can imagine, it was magical seeing snow for the first time! Since my childhood, I have always had a passion for meeting people from different cultures and countries. Just as I was helped to adjust, I have had opportunities personally and professionally to help others adjust to living in the United States.
In college, I was part of the International Club. Being part of the club provided lifelong memories and experiences. While studying at the University of Missouri-Saint Louis (UMSL), I did my internships at the International Institute. In December 2013, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from UMSL.
