Profile: Carolin & Filippo

Profile

For this international week issue I decided to interview two people from two different countries. Here are their short stories!

Ladies first! 🙂

Introduce yourself!

Hi! My name is Carolin and I come from Germany.

Where are you from?

I live in Soest, where I’m studying. But I come from a small and nice village in the countryside, where I lived my childhood spending time in the nature with my friends.

What are you studying?

I’m studying Design and Project Management.

Why did you choose Finland for your Erasmus?

I chose Finland and Xamk because I was looking for a small city with a lot of nature and Kouvola seemed to have all the prerequisites to fulfil my expectations.

How many countries have you visited?

Oh, that’s a long list! Australia, New Zealand, Austria, Italy, Spain, England, Scotland, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, France, Morocco and others.

How many languages do you speak?

I speak English and German (obviously) and I speak some Spanish too.

What are your plans after Erasmus?

I will continue my studies in Germany. From January I will start an internship for around 3 months.

Let’s move on with our second person interviewed!

Introduce yourself!

Hi! I’m Filippo and I come from Italy.

Where are you from?

I come from Genova a city in the north-east cost of Italy. It’s quite touristic and it’s really nice because there are both the mountains and the sea. I really love the sea and I usually enjoy to have long walks at the beach.

What are you studying?

I’m studying Business Administration in my city, Genova.

Why did you choose Finland for your Erasmus?

I chose Finland because I wanted to improve my English and it’s known that Nordic countries speak a good level of English. Also because I wanted to experience how it is to live in a country that is very different from Italy, with a very different culture and with the best school system!

How many countries have you visited?

I visited quite many countries: Portugal, Spain, France, Holland, England, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Greece, Turkey, Tunisia, Poland, Estonia, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia.

How many languages do you speak?

I speak Italian and English. I also studied French back in school, but I haven’t used it for a long time now.

What are your plans after Erasmus?

I will go back to Italy for my graduation. Then I will continue my studies with a Master degree in Marketing or Business Administration, but I still don’t know where.. not in Genova this time!
