Cultural Shock!

​​

Coming to the GCC has been one of the most amazing experiences in my life.

Naturally as many westerners we are programmed with a myriad of misconceptions about the Middle East and the treatment of women . I can't tell you how empowered I have felt living in the UAE  and now KSA!

Here is a very short list of some of the things that I have experience as a woman :

 


1. Make the same money as a man , working in my same profession. In the west women we are still struggling to make as much money as man !!!
2. Respected for being a women , like someone carrying my bags to the car , surely I can do it myself , but why not accept the help
3. Be judge by my mind not my appearance

Also I have found that it's beautiful how women are encouraged to get an education and for locals it is often free ! Hello world ... no student loans !

Everyday it's a new learning experience and I hope I get the chance to continue to live here in the GCC
