Hey! I'm Nandi, a Dutch South African born in 1994, in Lephalale, South Africa. I have lived in the Netherlands off and on since 2009, so I have sufficiently gotten to know my roots. I graduated in March 2021 from Leiden University with a BA in English Language and Culture, much to the amusement of my primarily engineering focused family. I grew up speaking Afrikaans and English, and learnt Dutch in my teenage years. I currently live in the Hague.
|Spoken Languages:||English, Dutch, Afrikaans, and a smidgen of Italian.|
|Age:||27 years old.|
|Pets||Yes. Five rats.|
|Interests||Far too many.|
I moved to the Netherlands in 2009, and finished high school here in 2013 with a HAVO diploma in Economy and History. I then studied Japanese in Maastricht for a year, switched to ICT at HZ University of Applied Sciences , where I got my propedeutic diploma, then worked for a few years in South Africa. After I had saved up some money to fund more studies, I moved back to the Netherlands and finally pursued a BA in English Language and Culture at Leiden University, which I graduated from in 2021. That brings us to the current day. I enrolled in BDMS as its combination of book history and digital technologies in the Digital Humanities appealed to both my education in the humanities as well as my technical interests.
|My Expectations||I believe that I will learn more about data management in Digital Humanities, and I hope that I will develop skills that will be useful in digital media.|
I am slowly but surely becoming a crazy rat lady, and one day my brood will take over the world. For now, however, here are a few of the best pictures I could find of my rats. They are Amos, Lunye, Dusk, Zenith and Faenor.
