I have reached a point in my life where I live way beyond my comfort zone. My initial comfort zone was my home in Belgium, surrounded by my family, friends, and mother’s home-cooked food. After living in Antwerp for 17 years, I moved to the United States to begin my journey at Northeastern University. Boston marked an entirely new chapter for me with unparalleled exposure, constant learning, and personal growth. Within three years the city became my home and friends became family. But I always knew that as soon as it became comfortable, I would be leaving to embark on a year abroad in Asia.
