She completed a semester in Rio de Janeiro, where she realized that she felt a connection with the Latin American culture.

Lukas Wimmer

7185Lukas is studying Business Management in Mittweida. His main courses are Hotel, Tourism and Events. When he first came to Colombia two years ago, he was fascinated by the culture and the people. The desire to come back became stronger day by day. Now he took the chance to deepen his knowledge from his studies, while he can also study the language and get to know the culture and the people as well.

The possibility to get to know new points of view and ways of living inspire him. The own openness, for letting unknown and foreign influences taking affect on oneself is a continuous requirement. Just like that, it is possible to create a positive change and finding a new home in a foreign culture.
