Thank you for the opportunity.


As I mentioned in my email, I would be interested in a position as an intern at Witte de With as I seek to immerse myself in the process of exhibition making and curating.

During my current studies, I have put into practice new techniques of display and communication, thinking upon the technologies available to us as practitioners. I have also refined photo and video techniques, grounded in storytelling and the contextual aspects of the topics addressed.

More recently, I had the opportunity to work during Dutch Design Week as part of the onsite team of G18 – the graduation show of Design Academy. Also, acted as communications associate for Geo-Design exhibition which took place at Salone del Mobile in Milan, being responsible of leading curated tours to press visits and selected guests.

With this said, I would be pleased that you would consider me for a position at Witte de With. Below you will find my resume among other relevant information.


In hope of a positive response,
Sofia Irene Marmolejo Bijnsdorp
