Living in the middle east changed me in many ways, but there are three events that changed me the most. Those events are the process of the initial move to Saudi Arabia, living in Saudi Arabia, and living in Qatar.
My parents first telling me that we were moving to a foreign country, my emotions and feelings whilst preparing to leave, what we had to take with us, what we wanted to take with us, and what we couldn't, and the long flight that felt like days.
Making friends wasn’t the easiest thing to do when you are literally the only American family within a 500 mile radius. They didn’t have a very good American established school in Saudi Arabia, so I had to learn a whole new system, the British system. With living in a new country comes a new life style you must get adjusted to. With living in the desert, you pick up hobbies the locals enjoy,four wheeling and snorkel trips, But after 3 years of that it was “time for another adventure, even though it’s not as far away as the first one.” As we move to the country right next to Saudi Arabia, Qatar.
Qatar was a much easier place to make friends, you know why, a whole lot more expats from America. They actually had an American school system that felt like an American school, the only difference was the amount of nationalities that attended the school. You’d be surprised the difference in nationalities between these two Arab countries. There were at least twice the amount of nationalities in my school in Qatar than in Saudi, it was ridiculous. This taught me about cultural appreciation and what ethnic diversities are out there and how different people live around the world.
Living overseas has changed me in multiple different ways. At first, moving can be a scary thing, but it taught me that you can call anywhere home. When living in a country like Saudi Arabia, it taught a new way of living and a new way of learning. Living in Qatar made me think of all the nations and cultures that are out there in the world. But most importantly, living overseas allowed me to experience them for myself and live the way other people had their entire life. If I were able to do this again, I would take that chance in a heart beat.
