Why you should study abroad

study abroad - Berlin, Germany 2015About three years ago, I was in Berlin, Germany to study abroad. Looking back, it seems like a really long time ago. It kind of is.

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…)

Hi guys!

Thesis Defense - November 3rd 2016
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! I am almost graduated, I went to Senegal twice, I have been on set for a few movies and shows and two of the productions were AMERICAN productions, in between everything I went to classes and trips and what not. 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.

New Year’s Resolutions! Anyone?

Hi guys!

I hope you guys have enjoyed Christmas w/ family and friends. If not, I wish you had fun and tried other ways to have fun.

Today, it is the last day of the year and for this post, I have put down my “New Year’s Resolutions”, just a few things that I would like to work on in 2015. And it is supposed to be the opposite of the whole “new year, new me” type of goals. There are just some things that I want to improve. Things that I can do better and should do better, in my opinion.
