I am a 23-year old student, currently awaiting approval of my application for a master's degree in English Literature & Culture after having completed a bachelor in American Studies last year. During this gap year, I am working as a facilities manager for a company that rents several apartments in the city centre of my hometown Utrecht. I am not only interested in literature as a field of study - I hope to become a full-time novelist and screenplay writer after graduation, and have participated in writing and directing two plays, one of which will be staged this month.
As far as travelling goes, I have studied in South England (Canterbury) for five months last year as a result of a wish to live in England for a while. I have visited Britain on several occasions and hope to continue to do so for years to come. Cities that rank high on my list of favourites are London, Brighton, Barcelona, Vienna, Istanbul and Berlin. I also hope to visit the United States, Buenos Aires, Oslo, Lisbon, Marrakech and Belgrade in the (hopefully!) near future.
