about me

I’m Bee, and welcome to my blog! I am American and grew up in Iowa, then moved to the Netherlands when I was 12. At 16 my family moved to Germany, where I graduated the IB. Now, I’m back in the Netherlands, which I consider my home. I lived in the Hague for three years, where everyone speaks English, so my Dutch is at a very basic level. I am on the line of intermediate and beginner in my German, which will hopefully continue to improve.

fun facts!
  • Before coming to university, I had never lived without a dog before, and I have every intention of adopting one as soon as I can afford it.
  • My full name is Abegael (yes, it’s not misspelled- it’s Irish, because my dad family is Irish)
  • I am in the middle of two brothers, who I miss very much
  • I am absolutely fascinated by ancient history
  • I am a Hufflepuff!
the blog

I started beekerns.com during my gap year (2016-2017). I had decided I want to become a teacher, and started working on my study guides for some IB subjects (currently: art, biology, and geography), posting them on tumblr. Towards the end of my year off, I felt that I wanted to help people more, as well as develop a new creative outlet, and started working on a real blog. I want to share my experiences on topics such as studying, college, the IB, traveling, and lifestyle overall. So far it’s been just peachy!
