Iraqi student living in the United Arab Emirates:
“I am Iraqi. Well practically I call “home” my own country. But I haven’t lived there for so many years. [The] UAE is my second home, but Iraq [will] always be my first home.
I always wanted to back to Iraq and live there. But I am definitely not going to feel like a stranger in my own home, because I have a sense of belonging to my country. So, I am never going to feel like a stranger [in the UAE] or in my own country.”
