Alicia was born in 1995 in Spijkenisse, but considers herself a real “Rotterdammert” since she grew up and still lives there. So if you’d like to become an outstanding Rotterdam speaker, she knows all the secrets. She started studying criminology at the Erasmus University, but after a couple months abroad in Miami Beach she decided to change course. She did a summer school for MUA, took some Spanish lessons and got a degree in financial law. After successfully completing a mortgage traineeship at Nationale Nederlanden Bank she was more than ready for a new adventure with Expat Mortgages and she did not regret that decision for a single second!
Besides working (aka dancing in the office) she loves being around friends and going out for some drinks or festivals (yes, plural). She used to play hockey for more than ten years and has 18 swimming diplomas, but is now fully focused on practicing yoga headstands. Her friends often call her a spiritual bunch of chaos, because she is obsessed with the Moon, interested in personal growth and got a miraculous positive mindset. However, she also got a very sarcastic sense of humour and loads of guilty pleasures, but fangirling over boybands is definitely the most notable there. Back in Florida she also heard – her later to be life motto – “be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons” for the first time, so if you see something with those pink animals, you might as well spot Alicia too.
