Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing Zsofia Patil, the founder of Language Corner Delft, a language school offering bespoke private and small group lessons. Besides managing her own business, Zsofia volunteers as an English teacher, providing refugees in Delft with language skills which could improve their lives.

Welcome to our now annual Out with the old, in with the new blog post as we say goodbye to 2019. We asked Delft MaMa Chairwoman Meredith Mull Aggarwal to share an informal review of what we’ve done this year. Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and enjoy a review of the year behind us before we look ahead in the year to come.
Agashnee Bodos stepped in as coordinator of Delft MaMa’s revamped SLiDe programme earlier this year. SLiDe, short for “Soft Landing in Delft”, was originally designed to provide mentorship for newcomers to Delft in order to ease their transition. We’ve asked Agashnee to explain a bit about the revamped programme, what she expects to see in the future, and how you can help.
At the moment Agashnee is on maternity leave with her first child. We wish her all the best, and look forward to her return later in the year.
Lucie Heraiz Cunningham, the founder of Delft MaMa, is leaving Delft for her family’s new life chapter in Glasgow, Scotland. We had a goodbye party for her at t Postkantoor to give us the opportunity to thank her for everything and to bid her adieu.
In May, Meredith Mull Aggarwal replaced Marie Kummerlowe as the new Delft MaMa Chairwoman. Delft MaMa has made many changes in the past few years as it takes on more activities serving the expat community in Delft. What does it take to steer the DMM ship? Lynette Croxford sat down with both women to talk about their experiences “behind the wheel”. You can also see Marie’s recap of 2018 here. I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to seeing what the new year will bring. I wish the best of luck for both women in their roles!
