Evelyne Müller wrote on her page: ‘This meetup is for black immigrants (people of colour e.g. African and Asian) in the diaspora, who want to connect and share with other immigrants on various topics in an easy going and informal atmosphere.
We would like to discuss topics such as, how to thrive in Germany and some of the psychological challenges (e.g. loneliness, racism) that we face and how do to deal with them, to name a few.’
The main topic of discussion stems from the questions; What is your immigration story? How can one thrive in Germany as an immigrant? and What are some of the psychological challenges that immigrants face in Germany, and how can one deal with them?
The sessions will be conducted in English.
