Born: November 22, 1989
Profession: 3D artist
Nationality: Palestinian with a Jordanian passport
In Qatar since: Birth
Annual residence permit renewal: December
Earliest Qatar Memory: I used to go to the park at Al Khor Park with my family or cousins. We used to spend the whole day there playing football.
Those other places… I did my higher studies in Sharjah, UAE. There’s an even more diverse crowd in UAE. I also felt the locals were more approachable.
The thing I’d missed most about Qatar: The Corniche. In UAE, the corniche is blocked by building/towers, so you don’t get a good view of it while driving unlike here in Qatar.
What must change here, now: The kafala system for expats. It’s quite strict.
Home is: where I feel secure.
