Changing environment, learning new language and new culture,being a wife and a mother, living far away from families and friends, I have come to share my views, thoughts, feelings, ideas on so many things that I cherish.

Are You an Expat Woman?

I said I will be writing about my life as an Expat woman on this blog. But before I start sending in posts on this topic, I want to let readers in about what it means to be an Expat woman. 

Have you noticed that every day more and more people are moving from their countries to live in other countries. The movement could be in search of greener pastures, careers, relationships, jobs, etc. If you found your self in any of these categories or if you are currently not living in your country, you are an Expatriate. If you are a woman, that makes you an Expat Woman (expatriate woman)..... and voilĂ , we have something in common. I am a Nigerian. I grew up in my country and I met my husband when I was concluding my studies in the University. I joined him in Germany thereafter and I've been here for some couple of years now, that's my story so far. 

If you are an expat woman, you will agree with me that there are lots of challenges that one has to face. Life could be fun though, careers, marriages/relationships, children, etc could thrive or suffer. But knowing that you are not alone and trying to get in touch with other Expat women will always go a long way in making a difference.

I am a member of an on line community called EXPAT WOMEN. The web site is amazing. There are lots of things to benefit from the site like success stories, inspirationals and motivational articles and so much more. Just click here Expat women.com
I wish you all luck in your expatriate living.
Are you an Expat Woman, I want to hear from you. Tell us your story, it doesn't matter which country you live in, we can always be useful to each other. Please leave your comments, no matter how long it is.
Love, Nekky.

Is not easy to be an expat woman because there are lots of challenges attached to it and am so happy that am gradually overcoming them.thanks for posting.

Hi Nekky! I'm happy to have stumbled upon your blog as I'm blog hopping today! We sound alike in your description...migrated due to marriage and then now building our families in a foreign land. Thank you for sharing that link for Expat women. I will surely check it out and am also eager to come back and read more of you on this site! Hope you can check out mine too as it sure sounds like you could relate to some of my posts (be sure to go to the top of the page 'If You Are New to Catharsis'). THanks and hope to see you soon! ---- www.joypagemanuel.com

Yes I'm an Expat woman. I was born and raised in the USA but moved to Australia 12 years ago next month.

Although I did not really have a language barrier I found it hard and sometimes still do.

Maybe we can compare notes sometime!

I really enjoy your blog! :) Thanks for sharing.

I guess I'm not. I've lived in the same country (and only ventured 300 miles from my birth city) for my entire life.
