Born in Armenia, Alla has been living in Belgium for 10 years with her husband and daughter.

In her country of origin, she had a degree in design which is unfortunately not recognized in Belgium. After working in the social sector, she wanted to go back to her first passions… And this is what she was able to do thanks to her duo with Chris!

Her mentor helped her to take her professional project back to the beginning, and to clearly define her goals. Together, they overcame many obstacles: lack of network, poor knowledge of Dutch, little knowledge of the Belgian job market…

Step 1: find a permanent contract ✅

Step 2: enroll in a design course 🔜

Step 3: boost your Dutch language skills 🔜

A great example of determination, kudos to them both!
