Blog 1 from Alejandra
Hello everyone! Welcome to the blog of my personal experience in the wonderful country of Germany.
My name is Alejandra, born and raised in Mexico. I am currently 29 years old and decided about 6 months ago, to radically change my life in search for better opportunities and a better life. I have family in Munich, my sister, two beautiful nieces and my brother-in-law, who is also Mexican. They arrived about 4 years ago. They adapted well to the German culture, they speak fluid German, have lots of German friends. I hope all of this happens to me too! A little more about me, I studied medicine and pathology in Mexico. Now, I must learn the language and start the process in order to be recognized in Germany as a physician as well. By the way, I have been told that German bureaucracy is the worst, so we’ll see about that.
Today was my first day at school (DeutschAkademie). I felt so excited, like back in school with my notebook and pencil. This is where my sister learned German, so for me it was a no-brainer when it came to choosing a language school. It is located in the heart of “München”, so I am excited to tourist around the center. I’ve already been to Marienplatz and the Frauenkirche. These are must see places whenever you are visiting Munich.
I’ll keep you posted!
