Outfit with a purpose

A must-have outfit is indispensable when worn with a purpose.

For almost two years I wore the Albert Heijn (AH) Oude Dorp bakery uniform with joy. I believe that my journey working as a part-time bakery assistant was with a purpose. I met lovely people. I developed the fluency in the Dutch language. I am part of a community.

After almost five years of living in the Netherlands, I am at home in Houten.


Albert Heijn Oude Dorp is a family business, owned by Martijn Steenman. There I experienced the “gezellig” work environment. This Dutch word I am not sure how to describe. It means to me positiveness. You got to experience by engaging with the Dutch culture.
