Mehrnoush

Team

This is Mehrnoesh, founder of Best Newcomer. When she was eight years old she fled to the Netherlands. Her parents and the people around her always encouraged her to follow her heart and dreams. And that's exactly what she did! 25 years later, she recognizes the same drive and ambitions in other refugees. Fantastic and inspiring stories that do not get the attention they deserve. And so she came up with the idea for the foundation of the ‘Best Newcomer’.

A group of enthusiastic people has joined Mehrnoesh. These people are also committed to getting attention for the beautiful and inspiring stories of newcomers in the Netherland. From a small group of people that wanted to make a modest difference, the Best Newcomer has now grown to a serious foundation with great ambitions.

Best Newcomer is a charitable foundation and has no profit objective.
