Hi there! I’m Vanessa Kirunda-Appelman.

My life took a huge turn when I moved – highly-pregnant – with my Ugandan husband, David, and 2 kids to Uganda in 2015. I had to built myself a new life in a totally different culture.

Two years later my life gets another rough twist after the death of that same sweet husband and I had to move back – again highly pregnant – to Holland with my 3 kids. Again I had to built myself a new life.

So, now I am an expert ‘mom-of-4’, emigrant, business networker, UgandanĀ  culture interpreter and griefing young widow. You can read my blogs about all of these topics here.
