away from home
From dreams to reality
Expatriation comes with a total life change that encompasses identity, relationships and emotions. Reality often reminds expatriates of a new psychological and social deal with and for oneself, dear ones left behind and dear ones joining the expatriation venture. This awareness can temper the potential for personal growth and for a unique, amazing experience.
Whether moving in or leaving the country, there are resources to re-connect with yourself and to achieve fulfillment in your “home away from home”.
