Hi all! My name is Tereza Baráková, I’m 22 years old and I moved to Leeuwarden for my exchange stay at NHL where my major is Communication. I come from the Czech Republic where I study Marketing Communication in the beautiful city called Zlin.
I’ve been here for 3 months and I have to admit that I love this city. The Netherlands was my first exchange choice after visiting this country last year, and my everyday life here ensures me that it was the right choice. NHL and Leeuwarden was one of the possibilities where to study so I tried my luck and I’m here, success!
I love the helpful and open-minded local people, nice city centre which is every time full of life, the magic of glistening canals which reflect everyday life, trend of riding a bike, Frisian food (especially sugar bread!). I love my school, NHL is very pleasant environment for studying, the best part is my classmates, mainly exchange students but also some Dutch. It’s a blast to spend time with them! There are lots of tiny and narrow streets in the city centre where I daily love to get lost in. This way I’m still discovering new places, views, and architectural jewels of Leeuwarden.
When I was younger, I was always dreaming about to become a journalist and to write (doctor, model or singer as well). My passion to writing was stronger than any of other skills so after a participation in writing school bulletin at my high school, I can continue here in this lovely company of YourPost. One of my dreams is still to have own magazine full of design, fashion and lifestyle. So, we will see where I’ll get in the future.
