I never thought I had it in me to write until I wrote that travel article for a friend’s online magazine. That was the spark that started it all.
The idea was to write about my travels but every now and then I would write about something else; a life experience, a good book, or even a piece of music that captivated me.
See, I like to read though I only started reading a few years ago. I’m a music-aholic who appreciates good music regardless of its genre but my all time favorite will always be live music.
I’m a university teacher with a master’s degree in mathematical statistics; I love teaching but I’m doubtful regarding the career. I’m a nature junkie and embarking on outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, kayaking, and recently diving just comes with the territory.
I’m an Egyptian who moved to Kuwait a couple of years ago (2015). That move offered me the chance to travel more and for that I will be entirely grateful. I love to travel and always do my best to make it count. I’m a novice photographer trying my best to capture the beauty I see around me and share it with everyone. My expat journey took me to UAE where I currently reside with my husband.
The great Maya Angelou once said “This is my life. It’s my one time to be me. I want to experience every good thing”. Indeed this is my own life, my one life, and I want to experience it all. So please join me as I share with you my journey as a veiled Muslim Arab female who happens to be a globetrotter.

My name is Ashlee. I’m co-founder of The Youshare Project, with the mission to connect people around the world through stories. I recently stumbled across your blog and read the recent post “I Miss….” I thought it was incredibly compelling and a wonderful personal window into your earlier, carefree life in Egypt. I believe it would make a wonderful youshare, because it can give others a look at what life was like before the current political and humanitarian crisis. If this sounds interesting to you, I would love to email you directly with more information and formally invite you to share your story with the project.
You have my email address and website. I hope to hear from you soon.

Absolutely love your Blog….was pointed towards it by Expat Panda, when I was doing some research on Kuwait, about working there. She said I could ask you for more info, particularly working for Universities there. Are you still in Kuwait?
