My name is Albina and I am a first-year International Business Management student at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. For me finishing school back in Lithuania, and starting my educational journey here in Rotterdam was the biggest challenge in my life. First, when you come to a country you always wanted to study in, everything seems perfect, although later you start noticing pitfalls and facing difficulties. I had to start dealing with many overwhelming things I have never knew existed and solve problems all international students come across. While looking back I would say that some extra help would definitely save me precious time and nerve cells.
