It’s an amazing initiative by International House to connect with international citizens and we have got a chance to attend informative sessions and gain knowledge on various topics at one place.
I was really surprised in a positive way - there was a lot of stuff to choose from, I liked the presentations, the speakers, the networking area with stands and the whole event was just amazing.
Keep up with these events. They really help the expats and make us feel welcome and safe in our decision of doing a life in Denmark.
