Expat of the Year

I have been nominated as Expatica Expat of the Year!

Here is the motivation behind the nomination:

Having been an expat and an international all her life, Rosalind, knows how important contact and support is in a foreign country. She strives continuously  to help others settle in the Netherlands. She works at Avans School of International Studies in Breda, where she has set up the  Avans International Community, a club for international colleagues to meet and discuss the trials and tribulations of living in a foreign country. She runs the Academy's  Buddy project for international students encouraging a joining together of cultures and promoting Breda as a student city. She is also a steering committee member of  Breda Expats, a new organisation set up  to help expats settle in the Netherlands but also for those wishing to get together with other cultures. She manages the website and marketing for the organisation. Rosalind realises how hard it is to make and find friends in a new country  and she organises messy play activites, book clubs, and discos for international mums and dads alike and their children. Amongst all this, she writes a blog at Tales from Windmill Fields (hopefully one day to be a book for Women in the Netherlands)  relating the stories of living in the Netherlands and bringing up a multilingual/cultural family. 

It would be great if you could vote for me
