You're from Saxony-Anhalt, Germany? - Tell us your expat story!

I am a German journalist and I write for the "Mitteldeutsche Zeitung" - the biggest regional newspaper in Saxony-Anhalt. The Mitteldeutsche Zeitung is starting an expat series and I am looking for people from Saxony-Anhalt who had the courage to leave their home and start new somewhere else in the world.

It doesn't matter if you moved abroad 15 years or just a week ago - as long as you emigrated. You can definitely plan to return to Germany someday, but your time abroad should not just be a three-month internship abroad. With the series, we want to give expats from our region a space to tell their story of why they moved to their new home, how they did it, and how life abroad looks like (including pictures and a video).

If you want to be part of the series, get in touch with me: janine.guertler89(at)

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
