Intro

Eve is a British expat born and raised in the Netherlands who spent her formative years cheering for Britain in all manner of sporting events.

This was always encouraged by her famously patriotic and sports fanatic grandmother Pat Stewart, also known as the ex Tiller girl, ‘the Blackpool belle’.

At the age of 18, Eve headed for a local rowing club along the Amsterdam canals after a chance conversation in France with a member of Marlow rowing club the previous summer. Things moved swiftly from there and Eve acquired a Dutch passport in 2015 alongside her original British one to represent the Netherlands on the international stage.

While Eve loved life as a ‘Dutchie’, she could never quite shake the feeling of being a British girl in a Dutch boat and secretly hankered after a place on the GB rowing team. When a serious injury imposed an unexpected pause with Dutch rowing some time later, Eve packed her bag and headed to Henley where the people and support she received really made the move to the UK feel like coming home.

Now, as part of the GB squad, Eve hopes that she can finally live the Olympic dream that she and her Granny Pat once dreamt of while watching BBC sports in a little house along the Amstel River in the Netherlands. Eve studied English and Creative writing at the University of Iowa.
