  1. Hey,

    How are you?

    I need to get an Apostille document for my Diploma. I read somewhere that you made a blog post about how to obtain one. I was wondering if you could send me the link to that blog post. I would really appreciate it.

    Thank You,
    Unique L.

  2. Heeey Tima…so I did an interview on my blog with Alex Rocha…not quite finished yet I will upload later this afternoon I was looking for some images for him, and found your site, it is so refreshing to see other black ppl that have the travel lust like me. I would love to be connected with you, gonna send an email..I am from New Jersey and lived a year in Panama and spend time in Latin America…Bless sis and lets link 1

    • Sweet! Alex is doing awesome work in Cartagena. Glad to see it being highlighted. Looking forward to your email as I have questions πŸ™‚ Why Panama? What did you do there? Where are you now? On my way to your blog in a bit.

  3. Hello! I just wanted to say I stumbled across your blog a while ago and have been reading about your time in South Korea and it’s been very informative! So thank you for that πŸ™‚ Seems exciting to travel so much.

    Thanks for all πŸ™‚

    • Hi, Shelby! Thanks for stopping by the blog. Glad you enjoy the posts. Although I am no longer in Korea, I still have a lot more to say about my time there. Also, stay tuned for my next expat adventure.

  4. Good afternoon! I’m Piper! I am planning on moving to Korea to teach, and straight up I AM TERRIFIED! hahaha!! I’m a curvy girl (16ish), with feet to hold me up (10.5-11)! I am not planning on living in the larger cities, but rather “Iksan”…I know I am going to struggle to find clothes etc…thanks for the peace of mind and suggestions. Any other tips to calm my jittery nerves? I am leaving a well-paid, govnt job, and security to spice things up a bit….any help would be appreciated.

    • Hi Piper! No need to be terrified. You may have to go to the larger cities nearby to find clothes in stores to fit you. Try looking closer to foreigner districts or the military bases. You could also have clothing and shoes shipped to you from abroad. ASOS has free shipping and returns, I believe. My best advice to give you is to keep an open mind. Seriously! Remembering that what makes perfect sense to you does not make perfect sense in Korea is a great rule of thumb πŸ™‚ Just roll with the punches as best you can. Make some Korean friends and explore.

  5. Hello!

    I am going to teach in Seoul come spring. I have been to Korea for 4 months to study abroad and let me tell you being a size 10 doesn’t help with shopping. and i love to shop for clothes, but i don’t want to have to spend a million dollars here before i leave. when i was there it was hard to find good places to shop for my size. thank you for this blog post!


  6. Hi Timah!

    I love your blog! Very happy to come across it. I wanted to know more about your experience in Abu Dhabi so far and more importantly your experience in the job search. I recently earned my master’s in education and would love to explore my option of working in the university system. Any insight you can provide?! Thanks in advance!!! πŸ™‚

    • Hi, Jasmine. Thanks for stopping by my little piece of the internet. I’ll be blogging about my Abu Dhabi life in the next few posts, so please stay tuned.

      Congrats on earning your Master’s! Many of the job openings I have seen for master’s level in Abu Dhabi are within the English departments. Specifically, those with MS/MEd/MA and some type of TESOL degree are sought out for lecturer positions. Have a look at the international sections of HigheredJobs, The Chronicle of Higher Education Jobs and on for postings to get you started.

  7. Hi, are you still in the UAE? I’m moving there in August 2017 to work for ADEC. I’ve enjoyed your blog very muchas I research what life is like for an African American Womanin the UAE.

    • Hi, Karen. I’m still in the UAE. Congrats on the new gig. You’ll be joining the ranks of many African American women working in ADEC. Feel free to reach out whenever you arrive.

  8. Bless Timah,

    I signed up for your blog a few years ago. I’m not sure what internet rabbit hole brought me to you, but I felt a kindredness right away. (And of course never commented or said a word until today…actually just read your last brief post ::sighs::). Besides being about the same age and from NY, your enthusiasm and passionate love caught my attention. I too have been going through ups and downs in life and love and the experience you share and nuggets you drop in some way help, even when it hurts. Much love to you, friend.

    With Gratitude,

    • Hi, Kate. I’m humbled by your message. Thank you for reaching out. Though I’m sad to hear of the similar ups and down and hurt. Here’s hoping that there will be more ups in our future.

  9. Timah,

    Fellow NY sista looking for information on employment opportunities in the UAE. Love the blog. Thanks in advance!!!!

  10. Hi Timah,

    love the blog . Very detailed, insightful and inspiring. I’m starting my own YouTube VLOG and would love to interview you when I get to Dubai . I’m flying in 7/8/17 and will be there until 7/10/17. Will you be free ?

  11. Hi Timah,
    Sorry I am re-posting this (posted this in the wrong section at first).
    I just recently came across your blog and I love it. I’d like ask you about working in the higher education sector.
    I am from East Africa and a soon to be PhD holder in computing. I did my undergraduate and masters in UK and PhD in Japan. Would the fact that I was educated in UK and studied in British schools in East Africa before that help raise my status (employment and salary prospects) nearer to that of citizens of the coveted 7 or does that not matter?
    I am also wondering how life is for black women. One of your posts talks about how you are viewed as American first and I’m just wondering how different African women get treated.
