About me

My name is Sheryl Lynn 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 was made aware of the inequality in this world and I always hoped that one day I could find a way to make a significant difference for people in need.

Realizing that dream 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 2013 I was crowned with the international title of Mrs. Globe, in the United States. This pageant was founded as a fundraiser for the Women In Need (WIN) Foundation, a non-profit empowering women who've suffered from abuse. Both pageant titles offer me a great platform to bring a positive contribution to the world.
In 2015 I graduated with honours 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, conducting fieldwork in the provinces Leyte and Isabela. During my studies 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 an international DJ/producer, (radio) host, 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 ♥
