I am Caroline Dusée.
A Dutch cultural anthropologist, researcher, writer, speaker with a love for other cultures, personal growth and raising more consciousness about universal themes. For over the last fifteen years of my life, I have lived and worked in different countries and continents for my work as a researcher. Among them, mainly South America and Africa. Currently I have been living for the last several years in The Netherlands, splitting my time between The Netherlands, South Africa. And sometimes the many other countries where I conduct (field-) work.
I grew up in a small village in the country side of the Netherlands. My upbringing and own history have been quite unusual. Due to my own background, where I grew up on small estate, with a father who was a cultural anthropologist and a mother from a wealthy family background. It was the place where my love for nature, spirituality and other cultures bloomed. But also the awareness of the inequality in the world. But also by the many losses that I endured in the first part of my life. These components and events, have later resulted in being the core and fundamental basis for my working themes and research topics. Just as well as the source from where I tell the stories of people from other cultures and share my own experience and vision.
More important than my traveling- life and the cultures where I immerse myself in, are the valuable messages and deep insights that I gain and like to share, partly based on my personal experiences as well as my field researches.
As a researcher and fieldworker, I spend a lot of time with local cultures. Besides that I live part of my life in the ‘Western world’. To bridge between both worlds, I hope to bring a message that is more profound than the fashionable stories and carries a more personal and ‘authentic voice’ as well from my own perspective together with the cultures where I work.
