Working abroad as a single mom

Published on 25 January 2021 at 11:00

It was always a dream of me to live in an other country, a warmer country with beautiful beaches. I was waiting for the perfect moment, because I was afraid I wouldn't make it. I have a little child depending on me, so moving abroad without being secure of a good income and a nice place to stay seemed to be to risky.


And suddenly I felt it was time to take the step of moving abroad. It was not the perfect moment. I wasn't even ready for it. But I felt that I really had to follow my heart, so I went. 


I was worried about finding a job, now with the pandemic and being a single mom. Most of the jobs here are in the hospitality, those hours are impossible to work, with a young child and with nobody around to support me. But now in the winter you are lucky if you find a job in the hospitality. Even the locals are having a hard time to find a job at this time of the year and now with the pandemic going on even more.


WeConnect made it possible for me to work from home. I'm now able to earn money while I'm taking care of my child alone. I finally can live in this beautiful country, while providing my child everything she needs. I can even work with my child at home, but I prefer not to. Luckily I found a good daycare where I can bring my child. During the breaks I have time to take some fresh air at one of the beautiful beaches here. Weconnect really changed my life in a good way.
