When we look at Srikar's story and how he ended up working and living in Japan, it goes back to the adventurous Straw Hat Boy aiming to become the Pirate King. In this interview, Srikar will share with us his journey of moving and living in Japan.
Being a freelancer has its ups and downs. Personally, getting to work from home, with my own hours as long as I meet deadlines, being able to turn down work (you know, hypothetically, if I have that much work) if I need to, and — if we're being honest here — cutting down on the face-to-face parts of work are all very good for me, since I'm not really sure I could handle a 'normal' job.
Interview with Henrique, a network engineer from Brazil, who wanted to step out of his comfort zone came to Japan. Now employed as a voice engineer by Human Resocia GIT.

So you just got a new job. Congratulations! The bad news is that you now go to work. I know, I'm not a fan either; really wish someone warned me that this would happen. Worse, there's going to be a first time you go to work, and people are going to expect a lot of things from this.
