I moved to my current country because: I wanted to travel and experience the world. My goal moving abroad is to enjoy and engulf in new and different cultures.

The three things you need to make it here is: Patience is key. You also need some compassion and understanding.

The Best thing about living in my host country has been:
The food. It’s amazing and halal!


My favorite experience living here has been…Meeting all my new friends around the world.

If you’re considering living here, you need to leave this at home :The American mentality and ways.

The biggest lesson I learned as an expat is...
Life can truly be simple.
