Who Are We?

The short answer to that question is that this is about every woman who has ever lived abroad – you, me, your closest friends and your worst enemies. It’s about every woman who has ever had to carve out her own space in an unknown, unfamiliar territory. It’s about every woman who has had to navigate networks of people – social, professional and personal – while dealing with the pressures of living in a new place. It’s about every woman who has had to deal with the entire gamut of emotions that come with moving bases and has felt the need for sharing or expressing them, but has been unable to do so.

The long answer, of course, is that this is about the experiences of a group of seven women, who are of different nationalities, work in different fields, live in different countries and look, talk and write differently. In fact, most of us have never even met each other! We are tied together by a whole bunch of interconnections that could explain part of how we got here but never quite fully. Each of us have had a variety of experiences that we have always wanted to share but never gotten the time or space to. So this is about us, and our experiences, and how they have shaped the people we are today. Some may resonate with you, some may seem absolutely strange to you. But we hope that in our stories and anecdotes, somewhere you’ll see yourself too and in doing so, make this not just about us but also about you.
