Daphne's Profile Page

Profile Picture

Hi, my name is Daphne and I'm 23 years old. Before starting the master Book and Digital Media I did the BA in History here at Leiden University. The minor I have done is Cultural Memory of War and Conflict.
As my profile picture already explains I have been very active in the study association for History students. I did many committies since I started my Bachelor, and last year I even did a boardyear here.
I was born in Capelle aan den IJssel, which is close to Rotterdam, but I have been living in Leiden for about 3,5 years now.


I am quite a creative person, which reflects in my hobbies. I mainly knit and crochet, but occasionally like to draw or paint. I used to play keyboard and guitar but haven't touched those instruments in a while. Lastly I of course like to read, however I now read much less than I used to since I had to read a lot of books for my BA.

Languages I speak:

  • Dutch
  • English
  • German, but only a little bit
  • Prior Knowledge and Expectations

    Prior Knowledge I have barely any experience with programming. However I did help build a website, but this did not include programming. This was based on dragging boxes around and editting them
    Expectations To gain a general understanding of coding and more knowledge on the subject of Digital Humanities
