Abstract

In the presented qualitative study, personal identity changes are explored. It
focuses on the process of identity building and changes in the perception of one’s identity as a result of migrating from their country of origin. The ways of adaptation of persons in the new environment are analysed considering factors of age, language and culture in regard to attaining their new personal identities. Migration is viewed from a perspective of an individual. The goal of the study was to capture personal reflection of an individual on the process of their adaptation in a new environment. Data was collected by semi-structured interviews and processed through phenomenological analysis. The results pointed to questions of defining home, accepting or rejecting the local language and applying various ways of adaptation depending on age. The study provided insight into the topic and confirmed the importance of considering individual experience of individuals when analysing migration issues. The results of the study will further be used in creating educational and therapeutic programmes.
