Aarhus Explorers

urbancodeLiving in another country can be struggling, but also it gives a lot of interesting meetings and surprises.

Several weeks ago at meeting at a museum I met Joanna. We talked and it appeared that she has her own company.

I met her and her business partner for an interview and I am looking forward to share their story.

Joanna came to Denmark from Poland 4 years ago, she is married to a Dane. In Poland Joanna was an English teacher.

Her partner, Jandira, is from Guatemala. She has been married with a Dane for 23 years. Before they lived in Mexico, Venezuela, where she worked in an export industry. In total she has been living in Denmark for 7 years.

To be happy at foreign country

11866490_10205634350232637_4913902510680936128_nOften when I meet immigrants, they start to complain about their present life at a foreign country, how different new culture is and how they miss their homes. It makes me sad to hear this, because I think if you made decision to live at a foreign country, you need to do everything possible to understand it and to be happy.

That‘s why meeting with such person as Michelle is a life present to me. As it appeared, it wasn’t the first time Michelle gave interview, she was telling her life story before.

Michelle is a positive and active person and she shows that an immigrant can find happiness in a new country.
