Argentines around the world

 Bethlehem Calderazi  thought she was going to be an architect all her life. She had a life going in  Buenos Aires , a successful career, but one day it's  stress  she faced with a reality: she had to slow down a bit. That's how he took his savings (about 5000 euros) and left for Europe  in search of a new life . Today he has a design venture through which he makes products from recycled plastic.

Born and raised in the Belgrano neighborhood, she finished high school and decided to study   Architecture  at the UBA . He got a good job and, a few years later, he went further: he started working on his own building houses. But the workload surpassed it and began to consider whether it was worth living with that stress on the back. So,  he made the decision that changed his life - to emigrate. 

His first stop was  Barcelona , but it wasn't what I expected. He tried his luck with  Berlin  and there he felt at ease. He got a job, a place to live and he got his main obstacle:  he didn't know German.  She signed up in a course where she met her current partner, a Chilean graphic designer. Together, they began to shape   4UPCYCLING , an enterprise through which they manufacture design products from disused plastics.  They perform from pots to fanny packs.

Thanks to this  sustainable and innovative idea , Bethlehem managed to add quality of life with a lower workload and high stability. From all this, something became clear to him: you can always change and start again, if the result it brings is more happiness.
