From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
I do it for the joy it brings,
because I'm a joyful girl.
Because the world owes me nothing,
and we owe each other the world.

I am a Dutch Wikipedia admin since October 2006, a Commons admin since 2009 and a Central Notice admin on Meta since 2017. I am a member of the Dutch VRT (former OTRS) team since 2008. I was on the board of the Dutch Wikimedia chapter WMNL for a year, and attended Wikimania 2012 (Washington), 2014 (London), 2016 (Esino Lario), 2017 (Montreal), 2018 (Capetown), 2019 (Stockholm), 2021 & 2022 (both online) and 2023 (Singapore).

I helped organize multiple Dutch conferences, events, Wiki takes, Wiki Loves Monuments and writing workshops. I'm involved in WLM international and Gendergap initiatives, and on the Movement Charter Drafting Committee since November 2021. A more exhaustive (but always incomplete) list of my wiki-functions can be found in my nlwp user space. I like to help people, and teach them "the wiki-way" wherever I can.

And yep, I am "the one with the pink shoes", for those that follow me on social media.
