About me

My name is Sheryl Lynn Callister-Baas, the founder of SLF, and I am happy to tell you a bit more about myself. I am the daughter of a Philippine mother and a Dutch father. Growing up, the Philippine people & culture have always been a great part of me. Ever since I was a little girl, seeing the poverty in the Philippines with my own eyes during our family visits, I always hoped that one day I could find a way to make a significant difference for those people who live in poverty.

Realizing that wish came closer when I was crowned Miss Netherlands on June 18 2006, as this title gave me the opportunity to start my own foundation. The Sheryl Lynn Foundation then started her first projects in the Philippines and I have done my best ever since to improve the lives of the people SLF helps.
 
In 2015 I graduated with honours (cum laude) in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology, a study I consciously chose as an investment for the Sheryl Lynn Foundation. I specialized in Environment & Development in the region of South-East Asia, the Philippines in particular. After obtaining my Propedeutic Diploma cum laude as well, I continued my second and third year doing fieldwork in the Philippine provinces Leyte and Isabela.
 
In May 2013 I was also crowned with the international title of Mrs. Globe, which makes me an ambassador for the Women In Need (WIN) Foundation as well. I used this title to promote both WIN & SLF and continue in my life mission of making a positive difference in this world. On the 11th of April, 2014 I was awarded the ECHO Award 2014 for combining the world of entertainment, academics and philantropy to use the outcome for a greater purpose. Today I still use my work in entertainment as a platform for my foundation. I feel blessed to lead a colourful life as a DJ, producer, (radio) host, presenter, model and former beauty queen, which you can follow on social media:

SLF has a Facebook page too, so I hope you will like and follow us there! For now I want to thank you for visiting this website and let you know that I am very grateful for all your support. Without you, there is no Sheryl Lynn Foundation.

With Love,

Sheryl Lynn Callister-Baas
