I am an international school teacher from the Philippines. I moved to the Netherlands in 2015 to pursue a research master’s degree in Child Development and Education at the University of Amsterdam. My hobby is walking along the canals, reading books in the parks and helping those in need of advice, tip, or solution.

• Biggest challenge: Navigating through cultural differences

• Top Advice: Get to know locals and internationals, join community groups, speak up and make the first move

• Living in: Amsterdam

• Expertise: How is being an international student in the Netherlands, student opportunities, search year/zoekjaar, or anything under the sun! No questions are too small
