Expat Struggles

Struggling as the expat partner?

The “role” of the Expat Partner comes with many stigmas, wrong communication and disillusion. In this category, I want to invite you to dig deeper and learn more about the Expat Community. Learn about the research in that field and read about other inspiring Expat Partners. It is a process to get from “what is my part in this new life now?” to embracing this expatriation as a unique possibility to foster your skills and grow!
