Occupation: Educational Coordinator & Consultant, Expat Lifestyle & Travel Blogger, Creator of AfroHairUAE online community.
I moved to my current country because: There were better opportunities for teachers in the UAE than the UK. It allowed my husband (who is also a teacher) to save more than we would have been able to in the UK.
My favorite experience living here has been: Hosting my first event for the natural hair community I created out here.
The three things you need to make it here is: Patience, contacts and money.
If you’re considering living here, you need to leave this at home: Your mentality. Because out here, it is different!
