Living abroad as a Black American expat has truly been a transformative experience for me. I started the journey by not really being comfortable with my lifestyle and I even wanted to quit expat life altogether at one point. Then I started to work on actively changing my mindset to really allow me to learn and grow from my time abroad versus just taking and being worried about what I was solely getting out of every experience I had.

In today’s video, I am sharing 10 habits I picked up while living abroad. I’ve now lived in both India and Morocco so the things that I share in this video are great representations of the life I’ve lived so far as a foreigner in different countries. What are some habits you have picked up from living abroad (good or bad)?

I hope you are having a great week so far!
