Up, up and away…

IMG_4428

I left the security of my home back in the United States on September 1st, 2015. I certainly wasn’t sure of what to expect, I just knew I was taking on one of the greater adventures of my life. The friends, family, and colleagues I left behind all told me how brave I was for doing this and what a great opportunity it was going to be. While I believed that, my head and heart were unable to reconcile it. Every minute I spent in the air was another several dozen miles I was putting between myself and my loved ones.

Once I landed, I decided to do my best to swallow my sadness and really take in this unparalleled opportunity to learn about and submerge myself in a culture I would only otherwise read about. I hoisted my backpack on my shoulders and disembarked the plane to embark upon this new journey that is Angel in Abu Dhabi.
