Monika le Roux arrived in the Netherlands in August 2023. Her partner already lived in the Netherlands, so they are reunited again. Read more about the story of Monika.
Monika, why did you emigrate to the Netherlands?
We decided to move to the Netherlands because we’ve always wanted to explore Europe. The Netherlands is right in the middle of Europe, so it makes it easy for us to visit different European destinations. We also wanted to live in a safe and secure environment where we can build a stable and happy life, long term.
Can you tell us something how you do like the Netherlands?
Our time in the Netherlands has been great. We love being outdoors, whether it’s going to the beach or taking relaxed walks in the woods, and we always feel safe. One big difference from South Africa is the excellent public transportation system here. Unlike in South Africa, we can easily get around the country without a car, and the public transport system works really well. It’s been a big and positive change for us.
Please tell us something about the projects you are currently working on.
I work at a client in the healthcare field, specifically on navigation and information systems for ambulances. It’s an exciting and important area where technology helps save lives and improve patient care. I’m part of a great team with talented and friendly colleagues. What’s really cool about my job is that I get to work with the latest technologies, which helps me learn and grow in my career. I enjoy my work a lot because it’s meaningful, my colleagues are supportive, and I’m always learning new things.
Did the process of emigration go smoothly?
The immigration process was fast and smooth. With the help of summit developers, I reunited with my partner in the Netherlands in less than four months from the beginning of the process.
Can you explain to the South Africans who are considering to go overseas how you did experience the support from us?
summit developers were a big help on our journey. Right from the start, they supported us and guided us through each step. They answered our questions quickly and gave clear advice on what to do next, which was really helpful. Their dedication and assistance gave us confidence and made our move abroad very easy. We’re thankful for their support, as it played a crucial role in our successful transition to a new country.
