Climber Spotlight

My name is Anak. I am 26 years old, was born on July 15th, 1996, and live in Belgium. Anak means child in the Indonesian language (click here if you’d like to know the story behind my name).

I started climbing when I was four years old, thanks to my parents. One of the things I enjoyed most back then was putting on my little harness, making huge swings, and hanging upside down.
Climbing gradually became more serious, and when I was 11 years old, I climbed my first national youth competition. In 2010 I started doing international youth competitions, and 2 years later, I joined the international adult’s circuit, where I made good progress and finally reached the highest level.
Climbing outdoors has always been a big part of my life as well, and I have kept pushing my limits on rock as the years went by.

Next to everything that has to do with my sport, there are lots of other things that I enjoy, such as chatting with people or having deep conversations, being in nature, camping, taking photos, learning other languages, listening to podcasts and bible teaching, reading books and articles or being creative.

The most important thing in my life, however, is my faith in Jesus. I believe he is the son of God who died for my sins (and everyone else’s!) and rose from the dead so I can have eternal life with God.
Getting to know the Creator better and learning how he has meant life to be in the first place is a lifelong and exciting process in that I like to invest time in.
