van Hoek, Maartje


Maartje van Hoek (1981) is a journalist who likes to be right in the thick of things with her notepad and nose. As a correspondent in the United States, she traveled to Guantánamo Bay for Trouw and De Standaard. For the Volkskrant, she reported from the Dutch Parliament, and as a journalist for Parool, she sat at John de Mol’s desk.

For Je mag je weer aankleden (You Can Dress Again), she even made it into the operating room of a hospital. There, she, along with a specialist, examined the opened body of a patient with endometriosis. Maartje lived in New York and Berlin and currently resides in Amsterdam.
