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 voilà, 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.
