ExpatJoy - Passionate Global Living with Sandra Bissell


A Very Special Day Indeed!

Today is a day of celebration for my family and for the United States of America 🇺🇸!
Twenty-six years ago, I became a mother on American soil.
Kyle conceived in Japan, and unbeknownst to may husband and I immigrated to the land of the free in my womb.
This January 20th, I’m beyond grateful to celebrate my first born’s birthday as my home country welcomes President Joseph Biden.
I’m inspired to watch Vice President Kamala Harris as she becomes the first woman, first Black and Asian American vice president.
I’m encouraged by the 46th first lady, Dr. Jill Biden, as she redefines her role in this new administration.
I’m hopeful for this beautiful nation again. 🇺🇸
Congratulations to the new President & Vice President of the United States of America!
Happy birthday, Kyle. I love you!
Xo, Sandra

My name is Sandra Bissell.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to live as an expatriate for more than 2 decades.

Some of my passions are people, my family, good conversations, traveling, ethnic food, dancing and Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian-Martial-Art-Dance.

Originally from the countryside of São Paulo state, in Brazil, I have enjoyed life in Kanagawa and Aichi prefectures, in Japan, Boston and San Diego cities, in the United States, São Paulo, Brazil, as an expatriate in my own country, Zurich – Switzerland and most recently Stamford, Connecticut, back to the United States.

As you may guess, I feel the most comfortable within the international community.
