Whether you are native to Abu Dhabi or a resident – we all have our personal reasons for living in the UAE.  Now there is a new community project aimed at creating more dialogue between the different cultures and background of Abu Dhabi’s residents.  Inspired by “Humans Of New York“, this project “Humans of Abu Dhabi”  celebrates the diversity within our city and the people who make it what it is.


This project hopes to inspire and educate by sharing various stories.  It doesn’t matter where you come from, what your economic status is – we are all here and have the same basic needs.  The photos may inspire you, encourage you or invoke gratitude. It is a beautiful project and will be fun to watch it all unfold. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to like the Humans of Abu Dhabi Facebook page.

If you are interested in participating in this project by sharing your story, please email your photo with a few sentences about you, Abu Dhabi, life events or anything you want to share to publishing@independent.ae.  What a fabulous way to highlight your time in the UAE!
