Tommy Pootemans, volunteer and Public Relations assistant for ICC Belgium and also nephew of Ann Peremans-Buelens, founder of ICC Belgium, has brought in our first Ambassador for ICC Belgium.
In the Spring of 2009, Tommy made contact with Danaë Van Oeteren, an actress and singer in the Flemish part of Belgium, to ask her if she would be prepared to take on the Ambassadorship for ICC Belgium. Danaë met with Tommy and Ronny Van Dessel, president of ICC Belgium. After some time of reflecting on the position and after attending our concert in Brussels in October where she saw the ICC Romanian children perform, she officially accepted the invitation to become our first Ambassador.
Danaë played some important roles in several Flemish television programs and also played an important role in a Belgian movie production. She sings and has her own music group and has also recorded an album.
ICC Belgium is very happy with the decision Danaë has made and hopes that she can become a well known face for our organization and that she can also find some other well known public figures to join ICC.
