Growing up in the United Arab Emirates

GROWING UP IN

When Jennifer Hansen and her family wrote this piece for Middle East week just a little while ago, her family was settled and loving their life in Abu Dhabi.

But suddenly their circumstances changed.

Still, the Hansens have been kind enough to share gorgeous family photos taken in the Arabian desert as well as tons of wonderful information about the diversity of the United Arab Emirates.

So join us in wishing Jen and her family well in their next steps, and get ready to learn lots of facts about their time in a land of both exciting advancements and deep cultural history.

Maybe they’ll give you some ideas about your family’s upcoming post?!
