ABOUT ME

My name is Dooitze de Jong. I am twenty-five years old. I’m of Dutch nationality and of Frisian heritage. I was raised in the Netherlands for the first sixteen years of my life but our family moved to South Africa in 2011. Eventually, I moved back to Europe in 2016 to study.

In 2019, I graduated in Theology and Religious Studies at the Evangelische Theologische Faculteit, Leuven with a Bachelor’s of Art. I am currently pursuing a master’s degree, specialising in theology and economics, and Bible Translation into Western Frisian. To this end, I am currently studying (Bible) Translation Studies at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) and Advanced Western Frisian at the University of Amsterdam (UvA).

Currently, I contribute to a new Bible translation into West Frisian, my mother tongue, and regularly produce video livestreams and recording of lectures, conferences and podcasts.

I am passionate about politics, jurisprudence and economics. I also have experience in computer technology, mostly system management and repair.
