Nice to meet you, I’m Astrid Moulin and you?

It’s funny to write a presentation article after more than 6 years of blogging, isn’t it? And yet I feel like it’s the right time. Many of you come to visit this blog every month, mainly because you found it in your Google searches but also because I shared an article in a Facebook group or because you follow me on my social medias. If you follow me on Instagram (if it is not the case yet, come on, I promise you we have fun there) you live my Canadian adventure every day and you probably already know a lot about it. But if you’re new here’s an article to put you in context and share some key information with you, enjoy reading! Welcome to this blog post, I’m your host Astrid Moulin.

Who am I ?

My name is Astrid Moulin, I’m 32 years old, I’m from the South East of France, from a small village in the Ardèche near Valence. In 2014 I took a plane to Toronto with a one year PVT in my pocket and the idea of learning English. At the end of this first year I returned to France and I came back to Toronto 18 months later! After having completed my 2 WHPs (yes it is possible for people who had a one-year WHP only before 2015), I got my permanent residency in April 2019.

What do I do in Toronto ?

I’m currently a blogger, freelance consultant, I lead workshops and I’m also a video consultant. To learn more about my academic and professional background before and since Canada, please read this article!
