Reflection on 2020

Today we looked back at 2020. We reflected on how this year has been; what new things came into our life; what did we miss the most; and many more.

Thank you, Negar and Laura, for sharing your wonderful thoughts and experience. 🙏🤗 And sorry that it in some way was like interviewing you both. 😀But was worth it.

Moving to Eindhoven

It is a wonderful achievement that how new, strange place transitioned to becoming your home. Quite encouraging and motivating as well on how you found your way in Eindhoven, though at times you were lost. As Nandita said, international communities and the locals were very helpful in finding your way around.

Especially when you were here a decade ago, the challenges were more. There were not many international communities; no communication through social medias to put your queries into. Language itself being a barrier; especially when English isn’t your first language.
