In 2012-13, I was at a point where things in my life just weren’t working. And frankly, I didn't know how to fix them. I had what others saw as great success on the outside but internally, I was drowning. I felt like a public success but private failure. I wanted something different, to be somewhere different. Unfortunately, those didn't seem like options the way my life was currently setup.
After learning that a friend was moving to Abu Dhabi with his family, I decided to check into living there as well. In just two short months, I applied, interviewed, and moved to Dubai. It was truly a stressful but fulfilling experience.
In the end, “my why” was about finding, refining, and redefining the life I wanted.
