E27: Kateryna Maksymenko on how the immigration journey changes you

"My time in Italy influenced how I drink my Cappuccino."

And I agree. The journey changes you, so I like to call immigrants “the in-betweeners.” You are in between cultures.

I wonder what I would call Kateryna Makysmenko, who’s lived in four countries since she turned 16.

On this episode of The Newcomers Podcast, Kateryna and I explore:

  • The legendary Canadian kindness

  • Moving as a tourist vs. moving as an immigrant

  • How moving often means she’s built an automated settling-in routine

  • Her first night as a student in Poland vs. her first night as a working professional in Canada

  • Why your first month is crucial to easing into your new country

Enjoy!
