It’s been slightly over a year since we moved from Indianapolis to Johannesburg and I’ve struggled with my identity and where to place myself in this world. It’s so easy to look at people achieving things and wish you are in their shoes. I hardly ever feel like meeting up with all friends when they come into town because of all my my head, I think they will judge me and wonder what I ended up doing with my Master’s degree. Finally (ding ding ding!), I have made up my mind that I will never be a 9-5er again. I am officially living this #expat life. I am owning this title of #trailingspouse, even though I don’t trail - I strut, boldly! So what’s next? I am launching my own side hustle, all thanks to the support and skills Hannah has given me. If you are struggling as an expat, and want to continue with your career Hannah and Translating Me are your solution.
