É poder mostrar para outras mulheres expatriadas, que elas não precisam passar por todos os obstáculos pelos quais passei para me adaptar e me sentir de novo em casa em um país estrangeiro.
Estima-se que 1,5 milhão de mulheres deixaram de trabalhar após a transferência do parceiro em um novo país, isso é realmente assustador. São muitos os obstáculos que enfrentamos nesta condição. Diferença de remuneração, a possibilidade de se tornar mãe um dia fecha muitas portas, somado a dificuldade linguística, diferença cultural e afastamento de tudo o que nos era familiar no nosso país de origem pode ser devastador para nossa saúde física e mental.
Após 7 anos consegui deixar de fazer parte dessa estatística e me aprofundo a cada dia em como minimizar os impactos sofridos na expatriação, vivo pelo propósito de ajudar essas mulheres a desenvolverem resiliência necessária e quem sabe pela primeira vez terem a oportunidade de viver as suas verdadeiras paixões já que tiveram que deixar suas carreiras no país de origem.
Resumindo, o meu propósito é a melhor parte do meu trabalho, é a sua força condutora que me impulsiona.
It’s being able to show other expatriate women that they don’t have to go through all the obstacles I’ve been through to adapt and feel at home in a foreign country again.
It is estimated that 1.5 million women stopped working after their partner moved to a new country, this is really scary. There are many obstacles we face in this condition. Difference in pay, the possibility of becoming a mother one day closes many doors, coupled with language difficulty, cultural difference, and alienation from everything familiar to us in our home country can be devastating to our physical and mental health.
After 7 years I managed to stop being part of this statistic and deepen every day on how to minimize the impacts on expatriation, I live for the purpose of helping these women develop the necessary resilience and perhaps for the first time have the opportunity to live their true Passions.
In short, my purpose is the best part of my job, it’s your driving force that drives me.
