Wanna live or study abroad?

Are you frustrated when you see photos of people studying overseas or living abroad happily, and wish you could do the same? It’s actually possible. I moved to Germany for a FREE Masters Degree and got my job without any prior preparation at all.

I dreamt of living abroad since I was a kid...

  • I could not afford to study in the UK, USA or Canada.
  • I tried working in big corporations in hope of opportunity overseas.
  • I applied for jobs overseas.
… but nothing happened, until I discovered that studying for a Masters Degree in Germany was completely free, even though I am a non-EU citizen. The course is taught in English too!

Sounds good but, What if

  • I ran out of money before I finish studying?
  • I could not find a job because I could not speak the local language – German?
  • I felt lonely and had no friends?
  • I had to give up everything I already had in Hong Kong before moving abroad?
  • I failed? Does returning to Hong Kong make me a loser?

Now or Never : I moved to Germany without any preparation

I believe that life will always finds a way. Try and fail, but never fail to try!

That was it. 2 weeks later, I moved to Germany without ANY preparation at all.

Facing the reality

Student life was truely awesome! However, I faced many challenges as I did not prepare.

  • Used up all my savings
  • Master thesis got rejected, so I had to start over again for another 6 months
  • Job applications were rejected

Reshaping my identity

What work for the local Germans do not work for me, and vice versa

I can never act like 100% German because I am not, and that’s okay. To truly contribute, we must show our true colors and be unique. Once I realized this, I completely changed my strategy.

Opportunity vs obstacle

I do EXACTLY what most of my German friends would NEVER do, and it WORKS!

  • My thesis is published in a journal despite the initial rejection.
  • I got the job offer every though the company once rejected my application.

Rejection does not mean a dead end!

Being unique makes you precious, and being obedient makes you unemployed

Would like to integrate better with Germans?
