She studies hard, and her parents provide her with all that she needs. She has one dream: to work abroad; however, she is afraid to confess this to her parents, since she knows they will not let her fulfill it.They assume she has everything she could ever want, and cannot understand why she would want to go far away, ignoring her obligations to her family and culture. In a Bahraini family, women don't work abroad, let alone should even dream about it.
Despite her family's feelings, she knows there are benefits to be gained from this experience. One of the most beneficial gains for women working abroad is the improvement that comes with the change in their personality. Women become more independent when they are free from the confins of their family. Moreover, the experience increases self-esteem. With confidence she can face and defend her values; she is no longer trapped in her thinking. The old values of her country that prohibited, for example, her choosing a life partner are no longer a hindrance.
