Selene Liselore De Vries was born in Leiden on the 13th of June, 1981. She grew up in the family mansion together with her sister Soe who is 3 year her junior. The De Vries family is what you would call “old money”. Living on the wealth that generations before them had gathered, the sisters never had to wish for anything.
Their father, Arjen de Vries, had always been prone to gambling and risky investments.
