Sometimes the passions and future aspirations of kids makes you enter a situation that poses unfamiliar challenges. Our daughter played in the national league for field hockey and decided at the early age of 15 that she intended to move to the United States after graduating high school. Although Google is sometimes your best friend it became apparent that it was a difficult process. We met Marina and UStudy, and since that initial meeting we totally relied on Marina during the subsequent process. At the time it appeared to be the right choice, and with the benefit of hindsight it certainly was! Marina was able to clear the roads; she moved all the obstacles thus paving the way for our daughter into the USA by means of creating the right contacts. UMO, Mount Olive (NC) and coach Daan Polders contributed to an amazing time for our daughter, and we are grateful that Marina helped facilitate this. I really recommend Marina and UStudy.
