In Memoriam: Taina Katarina Shaw

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Taina Shaw who passed away on 1 June 2023 at the age of 19.

Taina Shaw was a first-year Technical Computer Science student who started her studies at the University of Twente in September 2022.

She actively collaborated with other Technical Computer Science students in project groups within different modules. Her classmates and teachers appreciated her contributions to discussions and project work.

Taina will be deeply missed. Our condolences go to her family, friends, collaborators and housemates. We wish everyone a lot of strength, love and courage in dealing with the loss.

In ZI1016 of the Zilverling Building, this week, there is an opportunity to express your condolences to Taina's family and friends.

Students who need help or feel the need to talk, can contact the study adviser at (studyadviser-tcs@utwente.nl) or student psychologists (https://www.utwente.nl/en/ces/sacc/).

Employees can contact HR to refer them to company doctors and psychologists.
