Meet the Team: The Classroom
Annabel is currently in the final year of her History degree at UCL, where she has specialised in medieval politics and religion. After the summer, she is planning on doing a Master’s degree in International Public Policy at UCL.
Originally hailing from the Netherlands, she studied Classics for over 6 years as part of her Gymnasium-education, graduating cum laude in both Ancient Greek and Latin. In her final year, she could recite the entirety of Euripides’ Electra from memory, a talent which she has since sadly lost. During this time, she also worked as a tutor, helping students between the ages of 12 and 16 with their Ancient Greek and Latin.
Annabel has been a long-standing committee member of the UCL History Society, for which she has served as Treasurer and Events Secretary. Within these positions, she has organised large-scale events, including academic panels and lectures, international trips and formal balls, next to managing the day-to-day business of the society.
Committed to educational engagement and cultural exchange, Annabel was a delegate at the 2015 World Scout Jamboree in Japan, where she partook in multiple cultural and social programmes focussed on international cooperation and education. Furthermore, she has helped to organise Model European Parliament sessions at secondary schools across the Netherlands.
Outside of academics, Annabel is a keen dancer, and has taken Jazz and Street classes since the age of 7.
