About Me

My name is Esseline and I am 22 years old, I’ve lived in Leiden for the past three years and can confidently say that I find it to be one of the best and prettiest cities in the Netherlands. My family is predominantly Dutch, but I have some strong Scandinavian and Finnish roots and I have family living throughout Europe. Someday I wish to learn Finnish because of my Finnish grandmother, and because I want to learn at least one other language. However, I am actually very bad at languages so it will probably be some time before I am moderately okay (which is surprising as I’ve studied another language, but until now only English and Dutch have been nice to me).

Languages that I speak fluently:

Prior KnowledgeI have no previous experience with any ICT related topic. I only have experience in reading manuscripts, the history of the book, and the history of the printing press through my BA in English. However, I had planned to go to a beginners class of coding in Bath, but due to COVID I had to return to the Netherlands and I missed the class, so in another universe I already could have had some basic coding and technical skills.
ExpectationsI expect to gain good skills in coding and more knowledge of the history of the book and of the current state of the printing business. I hope that the experiences and courses this MA offers will help find me a future career path.
