S 3 Ep 17 – Brazilian to Canadian Culture | Mike from Brazil
In 2016, Mike decided to abandon his Law career in Brazil to start a new adventure in Toronto. Fast forward to today, he’s now living an entirely different and unexpected life! He is a successful entrepreneur, has built a cool online community of English learners over on his Instagram @itsteachermike, and is expecting his second child with the love of his life!
In this episode, he shares with us his honest (and often hilarious) experiences with culture shock and how he has adapted from Brazilian to Canadian life.
We also chat about how long it REALLY takes to feel settled in a new country, the unrealistic pressures newcomers put on ourselves to quickly build the “perfect” life, and how to stay positive if you feel out of place.
Finally, Mike shares he and his wife’s experience of having a baby in Canada and what to expect from Canadian healthcare during the process.
