My name is Monika Rojūtė, I am 23 years old and I am from the very north of Lithuania. I came to the Netherlands in 2014 after spending a year in England. I made this decision after searching for media studies in Europe. I ended up studying Media and Entertainment Management at Stenden university and now am a third-year student getting ready for my internship.
Leeuwarden has definitely become my second home. The few years I have spent here were full of experiences, amazing people, Dutch food and culture. Even though Frisian people are considered to be a little bit more closed, I always felt like I could connect with them and be myself.
What I like about Leeuwarden is the coziness of the city, beautiful canals, cute cafes and the people I have met here. It is not easy to specify only one place in Leeuwarden that I love the most, but what I am sure about is that I really value the friendships I have built throughout these years.
I decided to join YourPost because I support the idea behind it and I would like to do something meaningful for the city which I nowadays call home.
