On Tuesday, July 5th, I had the distinct honor of giving a presentation on Survival Skills to the enthusiastic students who will pursue their studies in the Netherlands beginning this fall, as part of the preparatory workshops organized by the Division of Study Financing.
The aim of the presentation, was to provide students with knowledge and skills needed to survive or be successful in challenging environments. As such, I rendered an interactive presentation on living in the Netherlands, healthcare insurance, shopping, public transportation, tax system and budgeting. After the presentation, students asked questions and inquired concerning things or situations they could expect while living abroad.
I hope to have made an impact on our students’ academic success and social choices through the passing down of my own personal and professional experiences, having studied and lived in The Hague for 7 years.
As a former study financing recipient, I take this time to thank Ms. Jacquie Louis, CEO of IMBRACE, for inviting and trusting me as a presenter in preparing our students to thrive in the Netherlands.
