Wie is Marit?

About me

I was born on 20 march 1997, in a very small village called Hazerswoude-Dorp. As soon as I finished high school, I moved to Amsterdam to study. It took me some time to find out what I liked and what I was good at. Eventually, I started my studies Media, Information and Communication (MIC) in 2016 at the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam. I’ll be ready in 2020.

MIC is very diverse. I chose to specialize in (online) marketing and writing. I believe these two ‘specialties’ are very strong connected with each other. You can’t sell a product without telling a story or sending a message.

Writing has always been a passion of mine. Since I was young, I had a lot of feeling for language and I recognized spelling- and grammatical errors immediately. I love language so much, because you can tell a story in so many different ways. There is always a way that matches with you as a person, your product, your company, and so on.

This is me

Are you curious about my work experience and (previous) education? You can find my curriculum vitae below. I designed it myself in Adobe Illustrator, so it’s also a representation of (a little part of) my Illustrator-skills.
