It’s my final week in Amsterdam and I am currently trying to fit the past five months in one suitcase (the struggle is real). Who would have thought I would come back with so much more stuff than when I got here. Anyways – not just the content of suitcase has grown (yes, I needed those 7 design books and I do not regret buying them at all), I have also collected an endless amount of memories in this wonderful city. I am grateful for everyone I have met (big thanks to my peeps at @design_bridge Amsterdam , I had a blast!) and every single one of my friends who made my time here this special. I have learned so much as a creative but also grown as a person, again, coming to a new city and trying to make it my own. I have just found a friend to sell my bike to, which made me realise how close my leaving date actually is. It fills me both with sadness and excitement to leave Amsterdam behind.
So, what's next?
After 9 months of internships I am heading off to Austria for the summer, to finally see my family and spend some time with them. I will also be travelling during summer and focus more on some of my personal projects, which I can hopefully share soon as well. From September on I will be back in London, ready for the final year of my Bachelor in Graphic Branding & Identity, which will hopefully be as challenging as the past years.
There is a lot more to tell and talk about and I can not wait to share more of my experiences from Amsterdam on this blog. Keep an eye out for more posts, once I have taken off to summer I will be able to dedicate much more time to my writing and creating content, which I am super excited for. So, see you soon, or as the Dutch say: Tot Ziens🎈
