I was born in Szczecin in Poland. At the age of 19, I came to the Netherlands. As a foreigner, in the beginning, I struggled with the language but also to understand the Dutch way of being. I attended a few Dutch courses but I didn’t manage to learn Dutch properly until I started to study Dutch Studies at the University of Leiden. Learning the language and at the same time, facts about the culture, the history and the art of the Netherlands helped me fall in love with this country. In the beginning, I had problems with the language too, so I know how you feel. But don’t worry I have your back! In my free time, I love to travel and do sports. I don’t miss a chance to visit new places in the Netherlands, far from the Tourist track, and discover more about this beautiful country.
