Israel Should Be the Next Place You Visit

The first time I visited Israel wasn’t because I wanted to visit, it was because I was offered a free trip. Taglit-Birthright Israel is a program for Jewish people to visit Israel for 10 days for free. I decided why not just go and see how I like it. I mean it’s free anyway. I was expecting to like Israel as much as I did. Many people don’t even consider…

Should Religion Be Able to Control Education?

A lot of people in America talk about how higher education should be more affordable and accessible. What they don’t talk about is how to get there.

True Love Should Not Be Ignored Because Love Is Beautiful

I just finished watching the movie called The Last Letter From Your Lover, and I’m in tears.

3-Ingredient Smoked Salmon Salad

Salmon is one of my favorite foods to eat. I could eat it every day. In fact, when my partner Kevin and I went to Norway, most hotels we went to served smoked salmon for breakfast. And boy did we indulge. Like how can one turn down a free smoked salmon breakfast? I didn’t eat much salmon growing up because it’s very expensive. Growing up in a family of 15…

My Journey of Moving to the Netherlands – The Immigration Process

One of the most asked questions I get is how in the world did I get a visa to live in the Netherlands. Well, luckily for me, I was in a long-distance relationship with a Dutch guy who could sponsor my visa. Moving to the Netherlands was so much easier than I expected.

The Dutch Should Get More Credit for Their Approach to Beauty

Do you want to know what I really love about the Netherlands? One of the top reasons that I love living in the Netherlands is the approach to beauty. I know, sounds a bit exaggerated but it’s the truth. Even throughout Europe, every country has a different approach to beauty.

Having a Hobby Is Crucial in Order to Feel at Home Here

I often get asked how I made friends in the Netherlands. Well, I’m here to say that it was probably one of the hardest things I’ve done in my life. My advice to everyone looking to make friends is to find a hobby, join a club, and take a class. I underestimated the importance of having a hobby. In the Netherlands, one of the main ways people make friends is…
