I am an ex-student from Bulgaria, who moved to the Netherlands in 2012 to pursue a bachelor’s degree in European Law in the beautiful city of Maastricht. I've worked in various organizations, studied and lived in different cities and have faced many challenges throughout. I'm a careful planner, but also very spontaneous.

• Biggest challenge: My biggest challenge when moving to the Netherlands was to find appropriate and legitimate housing. I've learned a lot from the hurdles I faced in my first couple of weeks in the Netherlands as a young student and I am here to help anyone facing similar or any other challenges.

• Top advice: Don't take anything for granted, always check your facts, but don't be scared to make the big move abroad.

• Expertise: accommodation advice, utility contracts, transport
