IF I HADN’T CHOSEN RUSSIAN, I WOULD HAVE BECOME A ROCKET SCIENTIST
After finishing Dutch high school, graduating with subjects like physics and chemistry on my list, I applied for Bachelor’s degree in Slavic languages and cultures at the university of Leiden.
Having enjoyed Bachelor and Master programs in the same field, I graduated in Russian phonetics with quite a techy focus. I studies the accents of non-native (Dutch) speakers of Russian to find ‘the problem areas’.
I also finished a year of Czech with doing a Prague summer school as the highlight of my additional curriculum.
However, in my third year I started teaching at different departments and took part in extracurricular activities. Read more about it below and look into my best performed skills and competences.
