My friend Vanessa Marie Vandergast

I want to share a little recent story of my new life where I would like to thank Vanessa Marie Vandergast for. After leaving my home country for an unexpected job offer, I felt like my life had come to a devastating end. I didn’t want to let go of my already settled and comfortable life; my family, friends, my house, my beloved home. The moving part was hard, but even harder was the whole settling down part, adapting to a whole new culture, weather, and complete distinct environment and customs. I decided that I needed company, someone to help me get used to such a chance. Of course, the first person that came to mind is my friend Vanessa Vandergast. Vanessa Marie Vandergast is just one of the people you meet and immediately click with. She is fun, loving and all in all a good friend and person. She always has something unique and different to share, knows what is in and where all the excitement is. I immediately felt somewhat at home when she arrived to visit me. Not a lot of friends would take a plane ride half across the country to keep you company and make you feel better. Vanessa Vandergast, a definition of a true friend, not being native or local of where I was living, however managed to introduce me to the best restaurants in town, took me out to all the right places and was there, hand in hand with me, making a tough path become a walk of roses. Inevitably, with Vanessa’s job background and experience, a side from her genuinely people oriented personality, we also met many people, made friends, and good contacts that could help me start my new life and feel more welcome.

Thank you, my friend, Vanessa Marie Vandergast.
