I am Lotte Dirchs, a 21-year-old student in International Business Communication from the Netherlands. In 2020, I started competing in my very first pageant, where I won the title ‘Supermodel Netherlands 2020/2021’. I want to use this title not only to represent the Netherlands the best that I can but also to raise more awareness and provide education on the topic of visbile and invisible differences. When I was 3 years old, I was bitten by a dog and I have had to live with a visible scar ever since. This was not always easy and there is not a lot of representation for this in the media yet. As a communication student, I have learned about how we are constantly being influenced to desire a certain ‘perfect’ life and appearance. This is something that I believe we should break free from. I therefore want to use my platform. You will find more information about my advocacy, personal life, people from the community and a lot more!
Feel free to look around!
