Please tell us about yourself: what is your name, how old are you, where do you come from, what is your professional background?

My name is Kevin, I am 32 years old. I come from Italy. I have 7 years professional experience in the Small Business Development field.

Where are you living now, why did you decide to go there and what are you doing there?

I am now temporarily in Italy, but I’ll be soon back in Berlin to establish my business.

How do you feel about being a migrant in Europe?

I feel fine about it. I feel European as much as I feel Italian.

Were your hopes and dreams fulfilled?

It’s too soon to answer such a question!

What are the Pros and Cons of living in a different European country?

The Pros are several. Above any other, the personal growth that originates from being in touch with cultural diversity. I see no Cons, as long as the individual has freely chosen the place he or she moved to.

What are your visions for the European Union?

So far, EU has been the killer of the post-war dream. It’s time for a big change, the existing system isn’t sustainable.
