Activities outside of school
Besides playing sport and attending school I also do a ton of other things.
On this page you can read about some of those things. The most things that I do and have done outside of school and sport have are creative or enterprenour things: That's becuase I am someone who not only wants to play a game but I want to create a game. Most of my friends only gamed at the time. I also liked gaming, but I liked it more to actually ceate something myself. For example everyone of my friends played a game called minecraft.
In minecraft we all played on servers, but I really wanted to make my own server and wanted to discover how everything worked etc. Anotoher example is that almost everyone watches youtube, but I especcialy like it to make youtube video's.
My personal essay is all about this characteristic of me and has to be read to get to know me better.
At the moment I have made around 30 good working websites. The same time I build websites also runned a minecraft server. In the server you could make so called "plugins" and that had to be done with java, so I also learned I little bit of java. I am still building websites, but now also for others. Currently I am building a website for a friend of mine which renovates scooters and one for a relative which sells jackets and bags: www.marianpepping.nl and I recently build an schedule-app for the students of my school. Also I am still expanding my code knowledge by my most favorite way building things, for example I am learning java by building an android app and I am learning python by building simple finance and investing scripts. I would really like to spend more time on those projects and when I can I do, but simply by all the other activities I do I have really little time to do these. When I am finished with high school I am planning to spend a whole lot more time on these projects, but also spending more time on soccer.
Later on I also learned python.
I also make websites for some of my friends and family. After my exams I plan to not only make websites for friends and family but also for the public. My promo-website is: www.webyiti.nl
Computer programms I am known with: Brackets, Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, IWeb, MAMP, GeoGebra, Google Sketchup, Wing101, Anaconda-Navigator, Garageband, Ableton Live, Xcode, Terminal, Blender.

My achievements in coding:
Another great passion of mine is making video's. Along with the first website I build I also started making youtube video's on my channel, I made tutorial video's, gaming video's, soccer video's basicly a whole lot different type of video's. I really enjoyed making them and still I do enjoy making video's. Now I make soccer video's, tutorial video's and travel video's(think of skiing, swimming and sightseeing video's). Also besides this channel of my own I also had a channel with another friend (not the same as my website friend) on which we posted game video's, vlogs and much more. We had very much fun together and I think we uploaded over 100 video's. I still make video's(see my soccer highlight video) and really like to do it. On fiverr(a website where enterpreneurs can offer their services) I made a video for a german festival:
I also like to play music. When I was 7 I started playing the piano. I learned the basics and played classical music untill my tenth. When I was ten years old I switched from teacher and began to learn jazz and improvisation at jazzmuziekcollege. Because the lack of time I stopped with the lessons when I was 15 years old, but I still play 2-3 hours a week. At the young age of 7 me and a few friends started some kind of band. Later on I played in another band with 20 others: http://www.stjanlaren.nl. We practised everyweek and we had a show every 2 months. Then in the sixth grade I asked 3 others to join an another band. The band contained 1 bass-guitar, one guitar and 2 piano players.
My friends and family would say I am an entrepreneur, impulsive, and creative. In addition to computing and sports I like making videos
Besides all those things I also have done multiple different kind of jobs.

- 2014 : For school we had to take an internship at a company in the Netherlands. I had a fantastic internship at DSA Global Solutions. A company which makes additons in selling-software, for example for a baker who sells breads. I had a great time there and learned a lot about company's and the owner took me everywhere. He took me to a convention of seller-software engineers, where the updates in the basis programm with which they all worked were discussed and he even took me to a live launch at a new client of him which was really cool. He wrote a kind of recommendation letter for me, click on the button below to view the translated verison.(www.dsa-gs.nl)
You just finished your internship at our company. You let us know multiple times that you liked and was interested by the internship. We were pleased to have you over for a few days!
You were curious, polite and asked good to the point questions. You have build a decent application in Microsoft Dynamics NAV, which has the possibilty to store information about students, teachers, a schedule, a grade-list and even a list with student averages per class and teacher.
Next to that we also went to an evening organized by the Dutch Dynamics Community and we went to one of our clients, called "Nijkerk Electronics" to launch new softwware there. You even had the chance to interview the financial director of the company.
Overall I think that you have gained a lot of impressions which kan help you with choosing your studytopic and lateron maybe with your career. On behalf of DSA Global Solutions BV I wish you very good luck with that. Good luck!
