The idea of moving to a different country seems exciting and can as well be tricky.

Going without a plan might not be the best idea.

About Us

Without a plan, Elyse Y. Robinson moved to Mexico City after her mother passed away from blood cancer.

She never heard of Mexico City nor even visited Mexico before. She just knew she had to escape to mourn.

She is going into her fourth year here and that's how BeAForeigner was started.

All she kept hearing is, "How do I move abroad?" or "I don't know where to start on finding a job overseas".

So, she created BeAForeigner to fix that problem.

Finding paid work is the first step!
