“I fell in love with Dubai when I arrived and choose not to leave when my work assignment for Dubai Metro was over. It’s been seven years now and Dubai is the place I call home…

  • I live here
  • I work here
  • I’ve made some amazing friends here 
  • I travel from here
  • When I’m away, I miss this place… #myHome is… #myDubai!”
