Looking back on Get in Touch | Seda Baskurt


Seda Baskurt

Am delighted to present the inspirational and useful reflection of our former Get in Touch spouse: Seda Baskurt (Turkey, psychologist). She as been an active member of our Get in Touch Family for years. In 2014 she started to join the Get in Touch program until she had to leave us in July 2015  for a one year stay back home in the US , where she grew up. After returning back again to The Netherlands, she and her husband moved to a northern part of Holland. We’ve missed her ever since, but at the same time are happy that they found a good place to build their new life in The Netherlands!

Below you’ll find her answers on the GiT ‘looking back’ questionnaire for GiT spouses who had to leave GiT for various reasons.

Thanks a lot, dear Seda .. and welcome anytime whenever you’re visiting Eindhoven .. :)!

Every activity is reached out the all members via e-mail which I think was very nice. The e-mails are very detailed about what will happen and where we are supposed to meet. Continue reading
