My name is Marrit van der Schaar and I am 31. I’ve moved to Johannesburg from Amsterdam together with my boyfriend in 2013. The idea is that we stay for at least two years.
Back in the Netherlands I worked in the social housing and urban planning sector and I am looking for a job in the same field. There are many developments and housing challenges in Joburg and I find them fascinating. As a newby I am still learning about the city and its diversity. Many neighbourhoods are constantly on the move, either ‘on the up’ or declining.
In this blog I will write about the changing neighbourhoods, finding gems in the city and getting more acquainted with the city and its perks.
If your interested in my opinion on the city, projects your are working on or something else, you can find more information about my professional activities on marritvdschaar.com
