Rafael gave his Ted Talk on the 4th June 2016, in Royal Tunbridge Wells, discussing overcoming barriers such as language and network. Integrating into to the culture is one of the first steps but the endless battles with your inner voice, is part of the everyday life of a migrant.

In his talk, Rafael covers his experiences as a migrant, including leaving Brazil to pursue a stigma-free life in London, the emotions he faced when confronted with challenges both internally and externally, building a network consisting of both professional and personal relations and also discusses his book ‘Moving Abroad One Step at a Time’; describing how he tailored each word to help migrants along during their on-going struggle.

Rafael’s talk is powerful, moving and emotional, sharing the reality of millions of migrants worldwide, giving a detailed, first-hand explanation on what it really takes to be a migrant entrepreneur.
