This is me

Hi and welcome to my website!

I, Kirsten Bronsveld-Rustenburg (1977) am married to Arjan. Together we have three children (David, Lars and Meike). We live in beautiful Dalarna in Sweden.
After high school, I studied English att the teachers training college in Rotterdam. I really enjoyed working at a school for special education and completed my Special Educational Degree. In Sweden I worked as an English teacher and later as an Special Educational teacher and assistant principal at a secondary school in Ludvika Kommun.

In 2012 I had TEN (Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis), a life-threatening allergic reaction to a drug. In just a few days I lost 65% of my skin. A series of medical and psychological traumas followed (an inner tornado) that caused me enormous fear and sadness for ten years. When I broke my ankle during a holiday , this turned out to be an important moment in my healing process. I managed to put all my experiences on paper. The document became a manuscript, the manuscript a book and the Dutch version will be published on Friday, November 17!
