UvA: My First 1/2 Year

I always knew I wanted to study abroad, but before starting university, I had so many doubts and questions about leaving my home country and moving to Amsterdam. Would I feel welcomed in a new place? Would the language barrier be a problem? How was I going to make friends? Now that I have been studying at the University of Amsterdam for a whole semester, I want to reflect on these past four months as an international student and share my thoughts on feeling welcomed at UvA.
