Armana was born and raised in a small town called Breda in the south of the Netherlands. Ever since she was a young girl, she had the strong urge to go abroad and see what’s out there. She has a background in finance but soon she realized that it was not creative nor challenging enough for her personally. Besides that, she is a people person and love to meet people from all over the world and learn about different cultures. That is why she made her first move abroad to Antwerp when she was 20 to study Communications and design. She continued this study in Rotterdam and still was not content with the Northern European lifestyle. She was craving sunny days and a more laid back environment and so she decided at the age of 22 to move to Barcelona to study Spanish. This adventure was supposed to be 1 year but turned into 3 and includes her trying out a lot of jobs for expats. On the side she has always helped my friends’ getting jobs by making their cover letters and updating their CV to a more attractive one. Starting her career in recruitment seemed like a logic step!

 

In her spare time, she is a photographer mostly taking pictures on (art and music) events or simply capturing beautiful moments in her day-to-day life to keep as a memory forever. In 2021 she experienced an artist block and made the spontaneous move to Granada for a change of scenery. She fell in love with the South of Spain and don’t want to leave anytime soon. She is a huge music and cinema lover and tries to relate this to her photography projects. To relax she practice yoga, tennis and recently started playing the piano. All in all, she loves learning new hobbies and languages and she is more than excited to start this new career in the beautiful Malaga!
