Talentissimo was founded in 2015 by Dutch Femke Hovinga MSc. She knows first-hand what kind of struggles extreme giftedness can cause whilst finding a way through the educational system. Femke managed to graduate from high school… however, it was a rough path. Dealing with being bullied, bored and lonely she felt like an outcast and became an underachiever. Luckily this changed after high school, when studying and finding different challenges became possibilities. Driven by the ambition to help other gifted children to experience a better childhood she studied to be a talent counselor. During this study she specialized in the profoundly gifted as this is an underserved part of the gifted population.
