Real-Talk: Dating, feeling lost and feeling home (and deciding not to date anymore) – The Third Culture Kid

This started as an Instagram caption but I received many personal and unexpected responses. That why I want to write it down, so it’s not just a title under a picture that will get lost. I always have been real on my blog but this article will be extremely personal. It took me a long […]

Why I moved to Copenhagen, Denmark and what’s next?

Initially, I moved to Copenhagen to study at Copenhagen Business School, one of the best business schools there is in the world.

Last July I was lucky to stay in Beijing 4 weeks and attend the Copenhagen Business Confucius Institute (CBCI)- International Summer School at Renmin University, one of the most renowned university in Beijing.

Are you a doctor yet? – The Asian pressure of success

“Are you a doctor yet?” Everyone knows that joke and meme right? – So, what’s behind it? For the past months, I got in touch more often with people who feel the pressure of succeeding in their career, studies or family planning.
