As I wait to board the plane and start my assignment this Mother’s Day, I think of my grandmother (who was an expat in India) and my mother (who was an expat in Iran — moving with the family when I was 3yo and my sister was just weeks old). They embraced their expat experiences and tried to appreciate the local cultures. I hope to make them proud.
Happy Mother’s to all my friends who are moms!!
