Guest Post on Expat Harem: How do you Say... Me?

I was kindly asked by Anastasia Ashman to write a guest post for the Expat Harem blog. Anastasia is the co-editor of the acclaimed expat book "Tales from the Expat Harem: Foreign Women in Modern Turkey".

Her aim is to engage others in dialogue about culture, identity and life as a global citizen.

Based in Turkey since 2003, Anastasia is originally from the United States and is married to a Turkish man. She leads the discussion about assimilation and cultural enlightenment in a country so different to her own.

I chose to write about the limitations of speaking a language not your own and how this effects your personal identity, your relationships and how others perceive you. You can read it here http://www.expatharem.com/2010/02/09/how-do-you-say-me/.
