Tell us about yourself?
Hi, I’m Ramon and I’m from the north-east of Brazil. I’ve always wanted to work in a foreign country, as before coming to Germany I had never been outside of Brazil before. While Germany was not in my original plan, when I got the offer from Labforward I jumped at the opportunity as the company culture really appealed to me. Moving across the world to Berlin was definitely a culture shock. I arrived in March this year, and have been settling in quite well. While there are things that I miss about Brazil, (the food mainly) the summer in Berlin has been really nice. Whereas Brazil is humid, in Germany it’s quite a dry heat, which I prefer, but I must admit that I’m not looking forward to the winter months! I’m currently in the process of finishing my thesis in Computer Science, so I dedicate quite a lot of time to that. I also love being creative, I’ve entered into many short story contests and want to do more writing when I’m here in Germany. Otherwise I am trying to get back into old habits and set up hobbies in Berlin.
