DUB's First Year Stories: Rafaella's homesickness and Santa Baby

Body: 

Rafaella Karadsheh’s first few months as a student at University College Utrecht, back in 2018, were great. But then came Christmas time and homesickness kicked in. Listen to the first international episode in our podcast First Year Stories.

"For the first time ever I was going to miss the build up to Christmas celebrations. I remember feeling very upset about that.” The day after Rafaella shared her feelings with a roommate, Ariane Grande's Santa Baby was blasting through her house. She and her roommates decided to keep the Christmas spirit alive in their home, following many traditions and baking cookies frequently.
