In this article, we want to introduce Hani Aldrsani. He supports the Inpsyde team as WordPress Engineer and Supporter since August 2020. Hani has seen a lot of the world and enjoys living and working in a multicultural society.
This is Hani Aldrsani
Hani is 34 years old and lives in São Paulo, Brazil.
I really like living here. Brazil is a lovely and green country, and São Paulo is a very multicultural city. I love the variety of cuisines you can get here. I came here because I was looking for a place to live in peace.
I come from Syria, but I had to leave because of the war. Until 2013, I lived in Egypt, but when political tensions arose there, I decided to look for a place where I could have a peaceful life together with my family. So, I found Brazil ‒ or Brazil rather found me.
For me, speaking a new language was hard, and I felt that I had lost some pieces of my cultural identity along the road. But the smile of the Brazilian people became my key to communication and made me feel at home. They welcomed us with open arms; there was no judgment. They simply accepted us as humans. And this was very important to me because I wanted to feel like a part of the world again.
How would you describe yourself?
There is one important thing that I learned out of my experiences: When you look around you and you see your family and friends, a peaceful place to live, then this is your country, your home. In general, I like to think of the world as one piece where countries or nations play a minor role. I want to pass on to my children that they can choose their home on their own because besides of nationalities or religions, we are all just humans.
Since I was a child, I used to travel a lot with my family. We have been, for example, in Jordan, Iraq and the Netherlands. Traveling from one city or country to another helped me a lot in learning how to make friends. In general, I am very interested in meeting new people and learning more about their cultures and backgrounds.
My travel bucket list, therefore, is very long. Barcelona is on top because this is the home of my favorite football team. I never missed watching one of their matches, even with war and troubles. But I also want to see some places in Asia and South Africa.
How do you spend your spare time?
I do not smoke or drink alcohol, not even use Hubble Bubble, but I can say that I am addicted to Football ‒ not any football ‒ just FCB (Football Club Barcelona). I used to play football myself, but I had to pause because of an injury. I also like to make films, e. g. with drones like in the image above.
Many of my friends from Syria have moved around the world because of war. Thus I get pretty cool insights into how it is to live in Japan, Taiwan, India, Africa, Europe, North America … We keep in contact and speak about our experiences, also the differences between the countries and cultures. There’s a lot to learn. That’s what I love about my city, too. It’s like a small world as there are people from many different nationalities. And it is one of the reasons why Inpsyde as a company with employees from all over the world was so interesting for me.
Hani ’s way to Inpsyde
I studied International Law Science at Damascus University in Syria. After that, I did many courses in HR and customer services and also networking.
Later, I worked as a Call Center Manager in an internet service company. I also worked as an HR Manager and IT Administrative Manager in the same company where I spent more than 6 years, but then was forced to leave because of war.
When I was looking for work after moving to Brazil, I came across Inpsyde. I knew that it would be a great chance and an exciting challenge to work in a multinational company. I really like my team and our working environment. Since I start pretty early in the morning to compensate for the time difference to my colleagues, I am done with work in the early afternoon. So I get a lot out of the day. My family loves it, especially the kids. And I appreciate working in this field while being part of a multinational company where I can develop myself.
