Hello, my name is Siyana and I am originally from Bulgaria. I study in The Netherlnds, but I also have lived in the UK and Spain, and the new destination is Brno for my internship. Sometimes I call myself a "modern nomad" since I am constantly moving, but that also gives me the experience that I can share with you.
