Andra Weiss, Romania

founder YC, networker, mentor, migrant

You should travel the world and admire the differences between cultures. Then you will feel the desire to celebrate a place like Vienna.


The “Celebrate Migration” scarf is the perfect way for a modern person to raise awareness of the positive aspects of migration on beautiful summer days. The squares show the uniqueness of each culture and their combination creates a harmonious and dynamic pattern.

On the “Celebrate Migration” scarf, my color is yellow. As co-founder of YC, I wanted a color that evokes elegance, pride, light. Yellow stands for sunshine and spring, just like my experience as a migrant in Austria: a gradual adaptation and change, which I enjoyed very much. It has inspired me and enabled me to work for others, for others who have not had such good experiences on the path of integration.


I started my entrepreneurial journey in 2014 when I wanted to bring the idea of Younited Cultures to life. The thought that I would ever be an entrepreneur was very far away from me. But I dared to do so and since then I have been living a life that I have always wanted to live. I love to meet new people and at the same time help people with a migration background to enter the job market and promote migrant role models. I love to tell their success stories and at the same time to make others aware of the positive aspects of their cultural background. My motto in life: ” Changing the world is my profession”.

I am dedicated to the fight against discrimination and to promoting the positive side of migration. At the same time, I am involved in many other organizations and projects in the field of project & event management, marketing, and communication.
