Hello! My name is Thien Kim and I am a 21-year-old student from the Netherlands! I just started working at Come on Up Kansai office and I will be staying at Midoribashi Share House.

I am from a very small village called Nieuw Vennep. It is a very peaceful and quiet village that is surrounded by farm land and nature. Although it was very nice to grow up in this kind of environment, I still felt like something was missing. I longed for a busy city life. I wanted to be part of a concrete jungle, as I was always amazed by the tall and modern buildings of cities that I had seen on TV. This is the reason why I decided to move out of home and started to live by myself in 2015. This was also the year that I started my freshman year at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. Living alone was lonely at first, but as I got to know new people from college and I was able to have a great time living in the city.
