Amel Derragui thought her past nomadic experiences would equip her with all the skills she needed when she chose to follow her partner to a new country. However, she did not expect how her independence would be compromised, and found herself asking who she was outside of being a spouse.
She wanted to reach out to other ex-pat partners who were facing similar struggles, but wasn’t sure how to do it. A blog could work, but would a written-form medium convey the right amount of emotion? And a video channel — much too involved. But Derragui finally had her “aha” moment, while listening to her friend’s podcast on a train.
