Angel Abreu


Buenas! My name is Angel and I'm from Aruba. I am currently studying Human Resource Management at Fontys Hogeschool Tilburg. I speak four languages: English, Dutch, Spanish and Papiamento. In my free time I love playing video games and watching wrestling. Now in my mid twenties, I try to help others as much as I can. From having nice conversations to helping with Dutch related paperwork. "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get."
