Pakistanis living abroad
People think that living abroad could be a tempting opportunity and could be a useful experience. However, living in a foreign country can be an experience both exhilarating and daunting. The life of a middle class Pakistani immigrant overseas is misunderstood by both the people in the immigrant’s homeland and the people in the country to which the immigrant has migrated. There are a couple of things that are immediately dismissed once it is mentioned that the person is a Pakistani living abroad.
It is often forgotten that moving abroad means starting over from scratch. Starting over from scratch may also apply to one’s academic and professional career, as the criterion for education equivalency is usually unfair. It takes years for a Pakistani professional to get a job and salary that his/her profession deserves, in a foreign country. For instance, a civil engineer may end up driving a taxi for seven years in order to accumulate enough money.
People work hand-in-hand on the issue of relocation. The life away from home is very tough. Living far away from the loved ones may put you down too. Keeping these points in your mind, will you still want to live abroad? Think again! —Rawalpindi
