  • About Fat Face:

    (About Us): We met at the University of Glasgow in 2006, where we lived and studied until the start of 2011. Ben graduated with a 1st Class Bachelors in Aerospace Engineering and Emilie graduated with an Honours degree in Social Sciences (Anthropology and Sociology). We both attempted post-graduate study, but realised our heart was not in it. Instead of waiting for life to happen, we decided to take everything in our own hands, which ultimately led to leaving Glasgow behind for 11 extraordinary months in New Zealand. After staying with no less than 35 host-families, our next chapter took us to Darwin (Australia) where we settled down on the 3rd of June 2012. Ben now works as an engineer and I teach Dutch, French and Spanish to a range of different people and companies.
