"I can't believe that it's already been a year since I moved to Amsterdam! I miss Phuket every single day, especially on the cold days! It's been fun living on my own and exploring a new culture as well as the true meaning of independence. Sometimes it can be overwhelming but that is part of the process! I moved here to study PPLE (Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics). However due to a slight setback, I ended up studying International Business this year but am scheduled to start PPLE soon. This setback helped me realise that things really do happen for a reason as I ended up in the same class as Tobi, another former HeadStart student, and I have met an amazing group of friends, so, trust the process! I hope you are all safe and pushing through these uncertain times! Sending you love, Andrea"
