Nicole goes solo today, but no need to fret - the interview with aroma therapist Hermien Grobler is excellent. Listeners will learn about how being inspired by a relative has led her on a wonderful journey, especially since arriving in Qatar to serve the community.


The ladies talk about their move to an independent podcast come April, which fits well with today's topic: stepping into leadership positions and getting past our fears. Being in a position of authority can be scary initially, but as Jeanine and Marie emphasize, it is an opportunity to share our ideas and energies to help others.

Back to the grind we go, but no need to fret - there are lots of great events happening this week! This week's show seems to be especially British and Irish heavy with St. Patrick's Day celebrations, a performance of "Macbeth," and debates at Georgetown University-School of Foreign Services​. We also get into the upcoming International Fashion and Ecuadorian Food Festivals.

Shout-outs to Empower World, the Sheraton, and the Doha Golf Club on your events this week!

Being new to any place can be a difficult transition, but relocating to Qatar can be especially hard for women used to full-time employment and vibrant social lives elsewhere. Carole Astin, who opens up about her first 15 months being here and the new-found struggles she faced, also offers hope and inspiration for newly arrived expat ladies. The Qatar Expat Womens Positive Support Group has become a community that provides its participants with opportunities to build connections with others in similar situations through social events, service, and outings.


Most days we're busy trying to complete tasks that we never check-in with ourselves and forgo the opportunity to listen to our bodies. The Empower World ladies delve into why doing so is important for adjusting our behavior, moods, and mental state - all it takes is a little concerted effort and time. Take some time to listen in and reap the benefits.


Kev returns after a week away in Spain, and we get into bringing you the best events happening this week in Qatar. You may also notice some improved audio thanks to our new audio producer, Scott, joining us from the UK.

A little late in introducing our intern and soon-to-be co-host, Ifath Sayed, who stopped by for a recording. She tells us about her experiences living as an Indian expat in the GCC, pushing to become a journalist, and balancing university and life commitments. Definitely expect to hear more from Ifath in coming months.
