    Found in Estonia podcast episode 63 with Maria Sakarias

    Maria Sakarias was 16 when she first lived a year abroad in France. After that, she’s been living in the UK and Netherlands, volunteered in Nepal and India, and traveled to countless countries through her work around creating social impact.

    She always thought that living abroad is somehow easier. That she can be this anonymous person, doing whatever and returning to Estonia seemed more difficult somehow.

    After two Master's degrees and 10 years of building international connections around linguistics, social impact projects, and the Edtech field, she now lives in Estonia again and shares her colorful story with us!
