Lolita Sahakjan

My name is Lolita, or Lola for short. I was born in Tbilisi, Georgia in 1992. I am ethnically Armenian, although I have never actually lived in Armenia, and I identify as one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I moved to the Netherlands with my parents and two elder sister when I was eight years old. I moved around quite a lot as a child, which is the reason why I have experienced a different mix of cultures and languages, and therefore, I do not really identify with only one specific culture. This is also the reason why I was raised speaking multiple languages at home.

I am an avid reader and booklover, bordering on obsessive. My list of favourite writers consists of Gayle Forman, Sarah J. Maas, Rainbow Rowell, Jane Austen, Edgar Allen Poe, John Marsden, Richelle Mead, Cate Tiernan, and many more. Aside from reading, I also enjoy doing theatre and love writing stories.

I did my BA in English Language and Literature at Leiden University.

I speak the following languages (somewhat) fluently :

  1. Dutch
  2. English
  3. Armenian
  4. Russian
  5. German
Prior Knowledge I have good technical skills when it comes to everyay use of technology, but no skills yet in programing and such
Expectations I expect to learn the basics of programming, to the point of being able to use it as a beginner
