Language barrier problems, and overcoming the challenges involved with reporting sexual assault (Mei Chi from Hong Kong)

Language barrier problems, and overcoming the challenges involved with reporting sexual assault (Mei Chi from Hong Kong)

When Mei Chi arrived in Germany, she faced several challenges caused by the language and cultural barrier. Not understanding German can result in some minor inconveniences that make funny stories later on, but other misunderstandings can be more serious. All this highlighted how important it is to have help at the right time, and Mei Chi started a platform called BookaLocal.

In this episode she discusses her own hardships, and also explains the purpose behind BookaLocal. BookaLocal also offers pro bono support for victims of sexual assaults in Germany, and Mei Chi shares her own experiences of this with us.
