My name is Lara Obeidat. I am from Jordan but I currently live in Dubai, UAE where I am pursuing an undergraduate degree in journalism and media communications at the American University of Dubai (AUD). I had previously done 2 years at the American University of Beirut (AUB) in Lebanon, where I was seeking an undergraduate degree in marketing.
I grew up in Dubai, which is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. My entire childhood, adolescent and teenage life was shape shifted by this city. This city surrounded me by so many things that eventually shaped who I am today. In Dubai, I got to taste the international lifestyle one would expect to come with a brewing city however, I sometimes wonder if this is all that I know.
Dubai became my home and the only place that I belonged. But what exactly did I belong to? I could not relate to my culture and I could not relate to the culture of this city. The only thing that I did know was that I could only relate to the other people who felt the same way.
Blah blah blah….
To cut to the chase, my blog is uncategorized because you can’t categorize an international person. 🙂
