China Overseas Chinese Network, April 12. According to the Spanish version of the WeChat public account "Xiwen" of the European Times, citing the Spanish "Pioneer" report, the young Chinese second generation in Spain brought creativity to Spain with new ideas.
These Chinese entrepreneurs are fluent in Spanish and Catalan. After receiving a good education, they have created a new business opportunity on the basis of their parents.
Jingjing Yang, 30, reportedly opened a second stationery store, Stick&Tape, in the Fort Pienc district of Barcelona's Passeig de Sant Joan a few weeks ago.
The Chinese woman from Qingtian said: "China, Korea and Japan have a long tradition of paper crafts."
Most Chinese living in Catalonia are of Qingtian nationality.
They opened restaurants, markets, bars in Catalonia.
Open a stationery store is not the majority.
Jingjing opened a stationery store with good design and quality in Aribau Street as early as 2016, and it is going well.
She said that the epidemic has stimulated people's hobby of doing things at home, so she decided to open a more professional stationery store for young people.
Although Jingjing's parents were initially skeptical of her business, thinking that a traditional market would be a better option, when you do something that isn't favored by others, new possibilities can arise.
This oriental woman used her innovative spirit to open up a new way of earning a living.
Not only that but also bridges different worlds and breaks many stereotypes.
Jingjing said proudly, "It was her friend who helped to design the new store, the daughter of a Chinese immigrant, and an architect. As a new generation of Chinese, we do things differently from our parents. Of course, I also thank my parents for their sacrifices to make We second generation Hua can have the opportunity to choose. We want to take advantage of such an opportunity.”
Madrid-born Ammi Liu, 27, studied humanities at Pompeu Fabra University, but now runs a shop specializing in shoe repairs and refurbishment of old clothes.
Her parents were very surprised: "You worked so hard to go to college, but now you have to fix your shoes?"
Ammi said yes, she was fixing shoes, bags and clothing.
For these, she even went to China to take professional courses.
While at university, she worked as a salesperson and translator in a luxury store in Passeig Gràcia, serving Chinese tourists.
She said that this is also a business opportunity brought by the epidemic.
"People are rummaging in cupboards, rummaging in their parents' house, looking for old things they want back. In this day and age, the value of recycling, sustainability and reuse is going up. Also, when you put on your Grandpa's shoes are very retro and cool. So now I have a lot of customers like this, who come to me with old things, and I use my technology to realize their wishes."
This is the new generation of Chinese immigrants.
While many still view them differently, they speak Catalan and Spanish as fluently as the locals and are shedding those labels in their own way.Keywords:
