About Yoëll Schutte

Al tijdens mijn studie wist ik: ooit ga ik in deze prachtige stad wonen. In 2016 was dat moment aangebroken en sindsdien woon ik in het Museumkwartier, wat mij betreft een van de gezelligste stukjes van Utrecht! Met taal bezig zijn is eigenlijk altijd al mijn passie geweest, ik houd erg van lezen en schrijven. Ook vind ik het leuk om te fotograferen, ik houd ervan om met mijn camera op pad te gaan. Daarnaast vind ik het heel gezellig om ergens te lunchen of koffie te drinken en om nieuwe plekjes in Utrecht te ontdekken, ook al heb ik natuurlijk een paar vaste favorieten ;) Op Explore Utrecht lees je mijn verhalen over de laatste nieuwtjes, hotspots en evenementen in Utrecht.
