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…
