I am an American immigrant in Slovakia. But I suppose I am a somewhat atypical immigrant, because all of my grandparents were born in Slovakia.
We invite you to the final Conference within the KapaCITY project.
Interview with Anna Shvachka, a cultural mediator, representative of Ukrainian migrant community and a leader of humanitarian NGO in Slovakia.
I am from Mumbai, India. My father was a very high cast Hindu brahmin, whereas my mother was a Catholic. They were both from very different regions in India. However, they both met in Mumbai where they were working and eventually got married and settled there. Soon I was born and was raised up in a city environment.
Except in History and Geography lessons (looking for European capitals), I had not heard much about Slovakia. I had never thought of coming here. But I had a good work opportunity. Being curious and after having a look on Internet to see pictures of Bratislava, I thought "why not" without really knowing what I would find.
