Camille Paris
Student / Masaryk University
Currently studying masters in International Relations and European Politics in Masaryk University, I first came to Brno as a French-Canadian vet student in VFU. Throughout the years I've had the chance to evolve a lot outside of the university sphere, especially in sports. I'm very involved in dog mushing sports, training and competing, and even wore the Czech national colors on the last championships... to tell you how much I've grown to love the country! Aside from that, I'm very passionate about community inclusivity and empowering, as well as development from a local regional to a large scale level.

Junior Researcher / CEITEC BUT
I moved to Brno in 2018 to do material research at CEITEC. Apart from my research, I like working with my students and seeing them grow. With my wife and two-year-old son, we love to spend as much time in nature as possible and travel around Brno and South Moravia.

Vinicius Corbellini
Software Developer / SAP Labs Czech Republic
I come from Brazil, but I also have Italian citizenship. I used to live in Spain, where I met my girlfriend, who is Czech, and we moved to Brno in 2021. We both work in big international companies. In our free time, we love to go hiking with our dog or go out with friends.

Copywriter/Marketing / Jetveo
I have lived in Brno with my family for more than 16 years. In the United States, I was a sports journalist and worked as a publicist for professional horse racing. After moving to the Czech Republic, I switched to teaching English, writing, and editing. Now I work in marketing and copywriting at Jetveo, a software start-up that builds low-code web applications.

Maggie Martin
Financial Analyst / Atlas Copco
I have lived in Brno for over nine years with my partner and our son. After graduating from university, I started working as an English teacher at a language school. My friend then mentioned an open position for an English speaker with German at the shared service center at Atlas Copco. I never dreamed of working in finance, but it seems to be my thing.
