ABOUT ARJAN

I want my story to touch people’s lives.

I have always refused to be a victim. The most important lesson I learned during my abduction is that as a person you are capable of so much more than you ever dared to think.

I want to give people back their positivity and willpower. The familiar “kick up the backside”. Being an inspiration for change in their lives. After my abduction, I developed myself in various areas.

I am now a writer, speaker, TV maker, co-host in TV programs and coach.

SPEAKER

In this one-hour presentation I take you to my childhood, the 20 months that I was kidnapped in Dagestan but also to life after my abduction.

I am an ordinary Dutch man but with an unusual story. And once you’ve heard this story, I hope that you too will be committed to excel and maybe you will finally make the decisions you’ve always wanted to make.

FREEDOM FIGHTER

Vanwege mijn beproeving werd het mijn missie om mensen te helpen bij hun zoektocht naar vrijheid, om in de wereld te leven zonder angst, omringd door bescherming.

Een manier om dit te doen is door het werk van de stichting “Free a Girl” die ik mede heb opgericht. Free a Girl is toegewijd aan het bevrijden van jonge meisjes van gedwongen prostitutie. Sinds 2008 hebben we meer dan 4000 meisjes bevrijd en een tweede kans gegeven in het leven.

WRITER

Soon after my abduction I was asked to write a book about my experiences. I was honoured to hand over the first edition of my book to Mr Bot, the Dutch minister of foreign affairs who made the immense effort to free me from my captures.

Today, more than 60,000 copies of my book have been sold, and 2 more books have been published.
