On to the next one…

After almost 2 years in Germany – and 5 years working for the same company (new record) – I’ve decided to make a life change and my pursue my master’s degree.

The first question people ask is – “Where? In Germany or the U.S.?” “Neither,” is my response, with a crooked grin.

So, I’m actually headed to… *drum roll please* … The Netherlands! I will attend Maastricht University, which is located in the southern part of the country. It is approximately 30 minutes away from Aachen, Germany, and a lot of people there also speak German. Thankfully, it’s The Netherlands and they all speak English as well.

I was fortunate enough to attend TedxMaastricht  this year (will post more about this inspiring event another time) and also took the opportunity to check out the school while I was in town. While I was there, I was so happy to hear and see a mixture of languages and people.  It’s a really cute city, very international, with cute restaurants and a diverse population.

There’s still a lot to do and finalize before I leave, and I have about 3 weeks left to go. Ironically enough, I will also be able to talk freely about my experience in Germany. So please, expect updated about The Netherlands and Germany! Till then, on to the next one…

    Hi Kim, found your page through your Twitter profile (you recently followed me). Good luck on your life in Maastricht. I lived there for over a year and truly enjoyed it. I attended a Master’s program at the same faculty as you.

    I also read your funny post about biking. It’s even more challenging here in Amsterdam, when you’re caught in a bike rush hour/traffic jam!

      Hi Clarence! I recently read your article where you interview Moran Barkai, who is an alumnae of my program and was a guest lecturer last week.

      I must admit that I’ve decided to leave my bike in Germany. With my lack of coordination, it’s better to protect everyone by sparing them ;-).
