“I’ve asked myself throughout my life so far what’s wrong with me. I definitely don’t feel like a woman. But I also don’t want to be a man,” says Charlie in the video below. Charlie Rackwitz has completed the bachelor’s course in Music Theatre at the ArtEZ Academy of Music in Arnhem. In the video, we hear them talk about their final performance as well as about their experience as a student at ArtEZ.

Bachelor Fine Art | Recreating memories to help us heal

She wanted to understand that part of her that was yet undiscovered. In the video below, she tells us more about her experiences during this course: “My brain is constantly on. I’m constantly thinking and jumping from one topic to another. But when I paint, it stops. I feel zen.”
