A Citizen of the World

Sandy is an Egyptian student who has grew up in the United Arab Emirates. She thinks home is a place where everything makes sense to you and to which you always return.

“I am a hybridized individual resulting from the marriage of globalization and the rise of the digital age. In a sense, I’ve created a metaphorical space, rather than a physical place to relate home to.

I have lived in the United Arab Emirates for nearly all of my developmental years and was raised by patriotic Egyptian parents. However, I do not share the same feelings and beliefs they do when thinking about either country.

Rather than dwelling on negative aspects, continuing to feel lost or confused, I like to think of myself as a citizen of the world; open to exploring the possibility of never finding one home, or finding home in several places.”
