I arrived to Geneva in April 2015 to live with my husband, a local in Geneva.  I am a CELTA-certified English teacher, blogger of Natural Girl, Unnatural World, volunteer teacher at UPCGe and Hubonaut at Impact Hub.  It is my hope that by sharing honestly on my blog and creating a direct meeting point for expats and locals, that the two groups will come to understand each other better and beautiful new friendships can blossom, to create an even happier Geneva.
