EXPATRIATES IN MAURITIUS

DEAR EMMA, HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE  YOURSELF AND YOUR  CHILDHOOD?
At 29 I would describe myself as an outgoing and caring individual. I love to be social and enjoy sharing my time with my husband and family.  I was born and raised in Nottingham, England where I spent most my life dancing. A hobby which turned into a profession at a young age where I would compete around the UK and perform in the theatres. I lived with my mum and dad and my younger brother Daniel. After my parents divorced at the age of 8 I continued to stay with my mum until I moved out at the age of 16 to stay with my father and pursue my independence. With opportunity to travel and to work my way up to management and gain irreplaceable business skills I see myself as lucky in my career so far.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE SOME MILESTONES WITH OUR READERS?
I’ve had many milestones in my life however the biggest so far has to be moving to Mauritius and marrying my best friend. After we met in France and spent 8 months I returned to England and made the biggest decision of my life to leave my job, family and life to live in a completely different world to be with my husband. Being in Mauritius has changed my life. It has led me to the start of a wonderful business creation to help Mauritians in work, life and careers. Education is important here and so is equal opportunity which leads me into my second major milestone which is the birth of ‘The Career Coach - Mauritius’ we hope to launch the company in June and I can’t wait to assist and help all the great people in Mauritius to reach their potential.
HOW WAS THE GREAT MOVE TO MAURITIUS?
After visiting Mauritius in November last year I knew what to expect however coming from England is very tiring. When I moved here in January I felt like I was on a pilgrimage. I left Nottingham by bus waving goodbye to my father and crying like a baby! I reached London and got lost getting on my next bus... thankfully I had some guidance and eventually reached Stansted airport. Early as I was, I spent a few hours sleeping on the floor along with the other 50+ people catching up on rest. My first flight to Germany was short which meant from Germany to Mauritius I managed to get some sleep. And lucky me I got a whole row of seats to myself! I was a very happy lady! On arrival of course I was greeted with hot air and a happy husband to be! And yes again I had a good cry. A mix of happiness and home sickness!
WHAT DO YOU DO IN MAURITIUS?
The Career Coach - Mauritius is a company which I have spent time creating. Still in its early months we plan to launch in June of which I’m extremely excited about. Whilst being in Mauritius I’ve noticed the big push on education and work yet not everyone has the opportunity and not everyone knows what the best path to take is. My mission is to change this. To stop the job mismatch and career disappointments. To give every Mauritian young and old a chance to become limitless and have all the guidance and education without the big costs and complications. In Europe there any many opportunities for individuals of all ages so why not for Mauritians too! We are all people, we all have dreams and we all need guidance. That’s what The Career Coach is all about.
WHAT ARE THE THINGS YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT?
I am passionate about people and about creating positive minds and happy lives. I believe we should all try and be kind. One kind act in a day can have such an impact on those around us and on earth. I love animals and I love to dance. Yes I can happily say I’ve fallen straight into the world of sega and do enjoy a good dance at events with my Mauritian family and friends. I also love to write and enjoy sharing my life experiences here in Mauritius on my blog. Mauritian Memoirs – www.mauritianmemoirs.wordpress.com
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT LIVING HERE?
The feel of Mauritian mornings. Every day when I wake up and go outside it reminds me how lucky I am to be in a warm country with the sun, sea and island life. I’ve become accustomed to the Mauritian way of life and couldn’t imagine it now without Mauritius.
