Hi, I'm Daniel De Biasi, and I'm fascinated by people who achieved incredible things. In this podcast, I want to share with you stories of people who emigrate and re-start their life in a new country. I invite you to join me as I explore emigrant's stories. We would dive deep into how they did it, what reasons pushed them to leave their life behind, what challenges they faced, and what they managed to accomplish. I left Italy at 27, moved to the opposite side of the world, New Zealand, and then to Canada. If you have emigrated or thinking of doing it, or just curious about other people's stories, this is the podcast for you.

    Aeron - Escape poverty and create an extraordinary “normal” life in Canada

    Aeron had always longed for a better life. He was born in the Philippines, a beautiful country but unfortunately, he grew up in a poor family.
    His mum had to leave him and his siblings to move to Hong Kong in order to provide for them, as they often went to bed hungry because there was no food in the house.
    He would only see her every two years.
    12 years later, through hard work and determination, she managed to bring the whole family over to Canada. Aeron and his siblings were finally able to have a new start, an extraordinary “normal” life. They could now have all the opportunities they never had before.
    Aeron's story is one of resilience and hope. It is a story that will inspire you to chase your dreams and do whatever it takes to fulfill them.

    Marta - Becoming a new mother abroad. Challenges and things you should know

    Marta - Becoming a new mother abroad. Challenges and things you should know

    When Marta and her husband decided to move to Japan, little did they know that they would also be starting a family. And while becoming a mother can be challenging for anyone, for Marta it was especially difficult. She had to learn how to navigate the Japanese healthcare system, deal with cultural differences, and learn new parenting skills all while adapting to life in a new country.
    In this episode, she shares her experiences and offers advice to other mothers who may find themselves in a similar situation.
    Marta is originally from Portugal. She lived in Spain, London, and now Japan. She also traveled the world as a flight attendant. Her first experience abroad was through a scholarship program called Erasmus. After that experience, she knew that her life was going to be away from Portugal. 
    The exposure to many different cultures was eye-opening. So years later, Marta managed to move to England and found a job thanks to her background in aviation. 
    In London, Marta met her husband who is from Belarus. 
    When her husband's visa was about to expire, he had the opportunity to move to Japan. To do so the two had to get married, and they only had 3 days to do it.

    Erez - Immigration secrets to SUCCESSFULLY move to Germany

    Erez - Immigration secrets to SUCCESSFULLY move to Germany

    Erez, the author of the book Berlin's Immigration Secrets, imparts with us his beautiful story of perseverance and commitment to reaching his dream. Erez was initially from Israel, and because of his country's continuing tension and economic crisis, he eventually got determined to find a new home as an emigrant. At 35, Erez moved to Berlin with a systematic plan and devotion to succeed. 
    Erez is a man that is applaudable for his passion, and this character of his enabled Erez to successfully stay in Berlin despite the many challenges he needed to face. Some might say that moving at the age of 35 seems too late, but as Erez shares his side of the story, he proves to us that it's never too late to reach your dreams. If you feel like the perfect time to emigrate is now, do it now! If you need more time, do not fret! Slowly discover the path towards your goal and at the right time, expect to harvest the fruit of your labor just as Erez did. 
    If there's another thing we need to remember from Erez's story is the importance of committing to a daily routine. Layout a plan for your life. Set the goals you want to achieve and be dedicated to working towards them. With this mindset, Erez was able to learn German and build for himself a stable job with a satisfying income. As an emigrant, it is important that we learn the value of discipline. There's nothing one can achieve if this fails to prevail.
