Expat Life

I’ve honestly loved my time here, even though it may have been a hard adjustment at first. I spent my teenage years here, so it’s really where I grew up and learned about the person I am now.

I have an older sister, and after watching her graduation ceremony last year and experiencing all the events that go along with it I was really looking forward to mine.

I just finished my final exams of high school and in a couple of weeks I’ll be graduating! Albeit, it won’t be the graduation I’ve been picturing since freshmen year, but it’s still a graduation!

Six years onwards, I wholeheartedly call this place my home. This is where I spent my teenage years – the place where I really grew into the person I am today and found my identity. I love the people I’ve met here, the activities and places I go to here, and the small quirks about living in Dubai. But as I turn 18 and finish my last year of high school, a change is on the horizon.
