Frangipani: memories of home in Malawi
My name is Janneke Muyselaar-Jellema, and I was a Dutch girl "Out of Africa". Born in Zambia. Moving was the name of the game. I went to primary school in Malawi, the warm heart of Africa and secondary school in Zimbabwe. Now I am a medical doctor and a blogger. I started writing this blog anonymously in 2011. I am passionate about understanding third culture kids and their development. Hopefully you will find answers here on this blog, like I am trying to find too.

At 19 years of age I went to university in the Netherlands and sort of stayed there ever since. I say sort of stayed there, I mean I still love traveling and I make the most of every possible opportunity. I am a third culture kid and I have an urge to write about this topic. I started writing this blog in Dutch but along the way I added English too. I will keep writing posts in English and in Dutch because that's who I am too. I love the English language but I love my mother tongue (Nederlands) too. I would love to hear from you.

Here's my first ever guest blog called "Where are you from?" on the Expat Explorer blog.
I wrote a guest blog on Transitioning Globally to University on Rachel Pieh her Djibouti Jones blog.

Here I am with my younger sister in Kasungu wild life park in Malawi. Growing up in Africa my childhood experiences were quite different compared to the other Dutch kids growing up in the Netherlands. By the way I still enjoy making fires and cooking on an open fire.

Recently part of my story was published in a chapter called "choices" in the book Once Upon An Expat.
