Spotlight

I first had this idea about 12 months ago. Having been here some time I am constantly asked the same questions about Emirati's and their culture, public and religous holidays etc.   I knew that I needed someone who had been born in the UAE to help me materialise this so I started keeping my eyes open on Twitter for someone who had been born here, was Muslim and knowledgable about the Emirati culture.  THEN I met Khaled, and I instinctively knew that he was the right man for the job, and Ask An Emirati was launched on facebook.   Back then I took a  bit of flack from some people as I was not an Emirati, I think they were missing the point entirely, the site wasn't set up for Emirati's but for expats to find out the information that they need about living in the UAE. I am very pleased to say that due to the hard work and determination of Khaled, Ask an Emirati has over 1500 members and offers an invaluable service to us expats. Well done!!!  www.facebook.com/AskAnEmirati @askanemirati
