Portrait of Carla, coming from Mexico and living in Luxembourg

How long have you been in Luxembourg?

I have been living in Luxembourg since August 2015.

What reason brought you to Luxembourg?

My lovely husband, who is French, had a nice offer to work in Luxembourg. 

What did you studied and what is your main activity?

I have a bachelor in Business Administration with a specialization in Marketing and a Masters in Brand Management. I speak four languages: Italian, English, French and Spanish. I work as destination consultant for an international company. Basically I help expats settling down in Luxembourg. Additionally I am Spanish trainer and an independent Brand manager consultant.

Can you give me 3 adjectives to describe your life in Luxembourg?

Pleasant, beautiful, exciting.

What aspect of Luxembourg would you miss if you had to leave tomorrow?

The geographic location and the cosmopolitan environment. 

What is your favourite district in Luxembourg?

The city-centre and my favourite district is Pfaffenthal ... I love the beautiful view from the lift.

Can you give me an example of a word in your mother tongue that is difficult to translate in another language?

The word "friolento" has no English translation, someone who is sensitive to the cold weather.

For which reason you have decided to join the Just Arrived Ambassadeur Club?

We have moved countries 4 times in the last 10 years. Moving to a new country has always pros and cons, but I can say that I have more positive experiences than negative, that I would like to share with newcomers.
