Little free time

I work a lot and don’t actually have much free time. The little free time I have, I spend on vacations and not only in Greece. I like to travel to Spain as well.

The place to be

I am half Ethiopian, half Filipino. I find the life in Cologne good! This is the place to be! People here are open and friendly. They live here with their hearts. I would never move away from Cologne – not even a slightest chance.

It’s ok

I can answer the questions, but I don’t want my face to be on the picture. I have lived here 15-16 years and it’s ok. Nothing bad has happened to my family. I come from Somalia.

A typical feature of Berlin

I come from Paris, France. Now I live in Berlin since more than six years already. How would you describe your life in Germany? Pleasant, comfortable. Maybe it is a typical feature of Berlin, but everybody finds their place here, everybody can follow their own path. The everyday life is...

Nothing against

I have lived in this neighbourhood already for 40 years. My husband passed away, but I don’t want to move away, because I have all my doctors here, my daughter-in-law works near by and sometimes I have this little friend to take care of. What do you think of multicultural...

A labour of love in Germany

There is too much negative coverage of migrants, either as criminals or people who only depend on the social system. With this kind of perception, it is hard to find people who take you seriously. Rachel Mwakazi

Very American moment

My name is Richard and I am an American from New York City. I met a lovely German woman in New York and in 2006 we moved to Cologne. What did you do to integrate when you moved here? I made a choice to do so. If you move to...

Not so conservative as one might think

I would say Germany is not that conservative as one might think. Why? I am from Colombia, but have lived in many different countries – Japan, USA, Spain and Brazil – and I think people are more relaxed over here. For example, you would think Spanish people are open, but...

Christmas atmosphere

We have many people visiting from France, Italy, Iran, Switzerland and other countries. I think people like to buy presents on Christmas markets because here you can find products that you don’t find elsewhere during the year. I like it very much – all the lights and nice stands. I enjoy this atmosphere...

A world citizen

I consider myself a world citizen. I am Indian because I carry an Indian passport and because my geographical region is called India, but I have multiple identities. If there was a possibility of a global passport, I’d be the first to apply. Do you feel integrated into the German...

The dressmaker

In Turkey men are the dressmakers. I’m making wedding dresses and evening dresses. I’m doing this job already for 30 years. It’s always interesting and it never gets boring: there are new people, new characters and new designs all the time. I simply love my job! What do you find difficult in...

Environmentally responsible

I am American, an East Coast girl, but was actually born in Rome. We moved to Germany three years ago because of my husband’s new assignment. I was not sure how to make it all work, changes are not always easy for me, but I integrated very quickly. I liked...

I have become too German

I came to Germany from Great Britain more than 40 years ago as a volunteer with the program called “Help your brother” and stayed for good. Most of the time I was a school secretary in Michaelshoven. I definitely feel integrated into the society, mainly through sport, my voluntary work and...
