Moving to another country is always difficult.

When I first moved to Paris, I realized how different everything was from the US. Having Maïa help me with everything like getting a phone, opening a bank account, and especially all of the administrative paperwork to get my visa was the best. Really, I couldn't have done it without her!

We want to be your French friend that can help you when you don’t understand paperwork you need to fill out in French or when you need to call the prefecture but your French isn’t good enough and you’re not sure you’ll understand everything.
