Dawood Mohammed Al-Anwari
Born: March 3, 1992
Profession: Graphic Designer and Game Producer
In Qatar since: I was six months old
Annual residence permit renewal: October
Earliest Qatar Memory: My dad taking us to Sanna’ theme park, and when I went on a school trip to Alladin’s Kingdom in the 3rd grade.
Those other places: The longest I’ve been away from Qatar was for a month, I’m always here. But I have visited a couple of countries and saw a lot of different cultures. The main difference I saw was in Cambodia – the citizens over there are the poor and weak ones, while the expats are rich and powerful. It was such a strange thing to see that Cambodians lived on the poor side of their own country, and actually work for the foreigners. I realised how grateful I should be to live in a rich country like Qatar and be one with the citizens.
The thing I’d missed most about Qatar: Whenever I travel, I always miss the quiet streets at night and how everyone is always around you.
What must change here, now: I wish they change the Qatari passport issuing laws, and start giving them to the people who deserve it, and I’m speaking on behalf of these people, because I am one of them.
What do you wish would never change: I wish that Qatar would never change its path and continue to become one of the best countries in the world.
Home is: Where I feel that I belong to, and where everyone around you supports you to reach your goals.
