What is Expat Lifehacks?

 Have you ever felt any of the following?

"I am a trailing spouse and I feel trapped!"

"I feel like I have to do ALL on my own"

"I don't have a network of trusted people around me to help me with the kids"

"I recently had a baby abroad and I can hardly cope!"

"I feel depressed and miss home so much!"

"I'm in expat limbo, neither here nor there."

"I have a hard time making a new network of friends every time I move."

Maybe my post on  "Why being an expat mum is the hardest job you'll ever have" resonates with you?

Then it's time to pick yourself up and start fixing the problems

Because being a drifting expat mum is emotionally draining.

And expat mothers don't have time to be drained. We need to rock our expat motherhoods because we're too damn important not to give our best.

We're responsible for bringing up a new generation of highly international, intercultural, open and tolerant little people. The same ones who will take over the reins of the world once we're done.

And they need strong and constant role models in their rapidly shifting and variable worlds. They need strong and fabulous expat mamas to show them that, yes, anything they want can be achieved. All you need is the right mindset.

Do you want to take control of your life?

Are you up to the challenge, wonderful expat mum? Are you ready to become the best version of yourself? That's what Expat Lifehacks will do for you if you're willing to. From moving internationally with kids to raising multilingual kids, right through rediscovering your identity as an international mother and finding the time and energy to undertake what you have been postponing for years.

Wouldn't you like to:

- Wake up energised and ready to tackle the next day?

- Know exactly what you need to accomplish next to reach your long-term goals?

- Feel like you are in control of your life, and not the other way around?

- Declutter your busy expat life?

- Be serene and enjoy the time you have with your family?

I have been an expat since the age of 17, I have lived in 5 different countries and speak four languages on a daily basis. Every night I wonder in which language I'm going to dream that night!

In addition to being a married expat mother of two and blogger, I have a PhD in Chemical Engineering and have conducted top-class research in Switzerland and the UK for the past 10 years. I am also a certified Project Manager, which I love doing. And I am only 31!

I've moved my family internationally twice without a glitch and landing with all details arranged every time. Incidentally, I throw killer birthday parties for my kids, who, by the way, speak three different languages.

My friends usually ask me:

When do you do all this?

You're so organised!

I wish I could do all that, I'm just exhausted in the evenings.

But who is she?

The small print

Micaela was born and bred in Argentina and lived there until the age of 17. She then relocated to Barcelona (Spain) and got her undergraduate in Chemical Engineering. After a brief period in Brussels (Belgium), she moved to Switzerland where she got her PhD in Chemical Engineering, got married and had two kids. Her career as a researcher took her whole family to Cambridge (UK) for two years, before landing back in Switzerland. And all this before the age of 32!

Micaela speaks four languages on a daily basis. She's married to an Italian, and their kids speak three (4 soon) languages every day as if it were a common and natural thing.

Other than her research activities, Micaela got trained and certified in Project Management. She's acted as Head of Marketing and Communications for a non-profit University of Cambridge association. She is also the Chair of the Policy on Successful Researchers Working Group of the Marie Curie Alumni Association.

Micaela has performed a vast amount of work and achieved recognition while working part-time ever since the birth of her firstborn. Her great sense of organisation, assertiveness and leadership skills have allowed her to lead her projects to success while keeping her personal life fulfilling and enriching.

You can see her whole professional background on my LinkedIn profile.

Micaela has set to do loads of things ever since she left her birth country, Argentina. And she has accomplished them. Do you want to be able to do the same?
