Maka’s Story

I am Georgian. I studied in Germany, met my husband. He is from Belgium and more than 22 years ago we moved to Belgium. I lived 18 years in Gerogia, 12 in Germany and 22 in Belgium. But I have still 100% Georgian mentality despite he fact I lived ( until now) 1/3 of my life in Georgia. I love Belgium and smal city Kortrijk where I live. I am successful in my job, have 3 kids, a lot of vriends. But I am Georgian and it helps me every day!

-Maka, Belgium
