Meet Andre, an ASML product owner from Brazil. For Andre, Brainport Eindhoven in the Netherlands feels like home when he can combine his two passions, music and sports. Luckily, the region has the perfect place for Andre where his passions come together, the PSV stadium. His story is of persistence, passion, and being true to oneself. Exactly what a Brainport Eindhoven pioneer should be. Read more to know his story.
Home, to me, is a place where I feel myself. A place where I belong, where people know, recognize and help me. A place where I can rely on my colleagues and friends and where I have my activities and things I like to do. For me, home is the place where I can have all these.
I am not going to lie; my heart will always be where my family is. But if I had to pick somewhere in Brainport, my heart is at the PSV stadium. At the stadium is where everything I love connects, sports, music, and people.
No, but I am one of its most enthusiastic ambassadors. I am very grateful for what the country, the region, and ASML have given me so far, but my heart will always be in Brazil with my family. But I don’t think there’s anything wrong with coming here, enjoying the experience to the fullest, and then going back at some point, knowing I will return as a better person. I came here. I learned a lot. Brainport helped me develop myself in my career in a way that I can bring a piece of Brainport home, improve my country, and help my community.
