After preparatory school in the Netherlands, Dieuwke moved to South Africa
at the age of 18 to study at Creare School of the Arts in Bloemfontein, SA.

she learned a lot from performing together with students from different cultures
all over the world. During her studies there, English (American, British) became her second language.
Back in the Netherlands, Dieuwke enrolled full-time in university in Utrecht studying Journalism. She continued to develop herself further as an actress.

At the moment, Dieuwke is also focusing on ACTING ON CAMERA and DIRECTING. Her four Short Films: 'We Dance, We Love, We War & We Run' (2017) are her directing debut. Besides writing, producing and acting in her films, she asked collaborating directors to work with her on set, so that, while on set, she could focus on her acting performance only.
