I'm majored in Religious Studies (MA), looking for an opportunity to spread my wings. I'm passionate about social media, religion, youth and film. If you're curious to know why, see below.
I recently graduated my MA (Religious Studies) and I'm looking to join a PhD programme. Also, I'm building up my own company, Gauwain, where I connect religious institutions to social media.

Social Media are a very powerful tool to connect. I wrote an extensive blogpost about how religious institutions can use social media. It turns out they are more easy to use than you would think. You already have all the skills you need. The fact that you're reading this, proves that.
Religion is my object of study and one of my passions. Religious beliefs are a very powerful motivator of the great majority of the world's population, how can one not want to understand that?
Every year, I staff a summer camp of (lightly game-addicted) adolescents. With my staff we try to let the games they know come to life in the woodlands of the Netherlands. Adolescents are powerful people, aspiring to grow, always changing and very very idealistic. How I wish I could have kept that idealism fully alive! If you don't work with young people, you have no clue how inspiring they can be!
Films and movies tell stories
. Man is made of stories. They move us and shake us. I wrote two theses on film. My MA-thesis (in Dutch) is available at gauwain.nl/kijk
