Curriculum Vitae

Extra-curricular activities
Initiative for Peace (IFP) 2008
IFP is an organisation that organises a conference once a year for youth from East Timor. I was one of the facilitators and gave them workshops about article writing and leadership. To be able to give these workshops I went through several trainings, such as a conflict resolution training, and a communication training organised by the school but taught by professionals.

Weblog 2007 - present
Since having moved to Singapore in August 2007 I have been writing about my life and what happens to me on my own weblog: Since I went to Spain in September 2009 I write the weblog in two languages: English and Dutch. Also I now write columns as well as personal weblogs.

Vice-editor Boarding House
Yearbook 2008

As vice-editor of the Senior House Yearbook for the boarding house of UWCSEA in Singapore, I coordinated the activities of my fellow editors, checked pages after they had been finished, and put the final version together as well as providing several pages myself.

Lighting Technique 2005 - 2009
As an extra-curricular activity both at 't Atrium and at the United World College of South East Asia I was an active member of the team providing the light and sound for parties and theatre performances. At 't Atrium I was the head of the lighting team, and created light plans for many events.

Theater school 2001 - 2007
After school I used to be part of a drama school, where we performed every year. Apart from actual performance I also participated in setting up the production. I also learned to communicate more effectively through dramatic expression, and especially my public speaking greatly improved.
