Dear Ms Expat
- About the Authors
A move to a new country is a life-changing experience. New identities, fresh ambitions and unforeseen challenges —so much comes to you all at once.
This book chronicles the real-life inspirational stories of ten expat women who rebuilt their lives, turned negatives into positives, with sheer grit and resilience. These are women who took the drama that life threw at them and used it as a catalyst to turn their lives around.
The tales are as diverse as the women’s backgrounds, with childhood spent either on rolling Australian farms, amidst Swiss mountains, or in small-town America. These women have reinvented themselves to become entrepreneurs, photographers, advocates, writers and leaders.
ransplanted to a new environment, they worked hard to better themselves—whether it is for personal fulfilment, for their families, for the expat community, or for womankind at large.
Here are stories of loss, hope, aspirations, failures and tomorrows.
