Introduce yourself here

Hi educators!

Welcome to the MongoDB for Academia program. My name is Lieke, program manager MongoDB for Academia. I joined MongoDB last January (2020) and I’ve been working hard on launching this initiative :slight_smile:

Prior to MongoDB, I worked on the GitHub Education team as manager Higher Education. I’ve also worked as a (trainee)developer and organized coding events for girls & women.

I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands :netherlands: with my :dog: and partner. I have great love for music, reading, board games and Italy (food, language, culture, weather… everything)!

I invite you all to share a little bit about yourself. I’m looking forward to getting to know you!

Thank you for joining us!
