I can say that The Hague feels like my home now. I moved here from Mexico to obtain my Master’s degree and I am happy to be part now of this vibrant international community in The Netherlands.
When moving from other parts of the world, it can be challenging to know your way around in a new place, especially if you are on your own. Following the process to settle, all aspects of life can take time, effort and higher costs without a helping hand.
I am volunteering for The Feel at Home in The Hague Fair because of the great relevance of this event to help people find solutions and increase their opportunities to have a better life here. I am glad to be making a contribution with my professional skills and I have enjoyed working with the team of The Hague Online.
I wish for everyone to make the best of this fun opportunity to get useful information, make valuable connections with people and get on track to have an even more enjoyable experience living in this beautiful city.
