Alejandra at Honiggelb

To start this project I’m talking to Alejandra Aguacia, 28, Colombian from Bogotá who has been  in Berlin since 2018 to work on a Master’s in Design Strategy at the Design Akademie in Kreuzberg. For her thesis, she did research about menstruation and its taboos. As her teachers said, that was not an easy task, but she did great and extended research, and she got an excellent grade at the end of her course due to this project. I’m happy to share with you this interview where she’s talks about how she came to Berlin, her life here, what she learned with her research, and how that changed her views about menstruation. Thank you Ale for your time, and special thanks to the lovely cafe where we met to have this interview: Honiggelb in Mitte/Moabit, run by fellow IWB member, Idil Scharf.

One last thing: This interview is done in immigrant English. Prob there are some typos and “unusual” phrase constructions in all interviews  :)
