Why you should do an internship abroad

In my last post, I talked about why you should study abroad and shared my own experiences. Since I did my internship in Senegal right after my exchange period, I thought it would be a great moment to talk about my internship as well. I consider doing my internship in Senegal also one of the best things I have done. In this post, I want to list all the benefits of doing an internship or working in another country. Let’s get into working abroad! (more…)

Also, I will share with you my personal experiences! I am doing this because I never really took the opportunity to share this experience. Let’s get into why you should study abroad! (more…)

Before defending my thesis

Good question! What has Senegalese Twisted (me) been up to for the past year? Well, I have been doing a lot of things!

In this post, I will tell you all about the things I have been doing and some things, I will elaborate on in future blog posts.


Update: July 2015

Hey Guys!

I am soooo sorry that I have not been able to update my blog for you guys since my trip to Poland earlier this May. I was really busy and to be honest, I was too lazy to upload pictures for you guys. Lol. So lame…

Anyways… I wanted to give you guys an update for the end of July. First, I wanted to share that I am officially back in Holland from my semester abroad! I have to say that Berlin was amazing! I have made new friends, I have learned a lot about living abroad alone and how to survive in another country on my own. To be honest, I would not expect it to go particularly wrong.. Mostly, because I am a very independent person already. Other than that, I think that everyone should live abroad at least for a few months. There are things that only experience can teach you, and those are the things that you will take with you forever.
