How did we find Tijmen?

Before we tell you how, allow us a relieved “finally”!

Tijmen is a classmate and a friend of Anna and they have been hanging out ever since they both came to Odense, even before Humans of SDU was born. Tijmen has also been a valuable fan of the project, listening to many episodes, providing his critical ear for feedback as well as never-ending support with the “How is Humans fo SDU going” question.
