Rejected tells us her story of an Iraqi woman as it develops. From starting work in multinational companies in Baghdad after the war to life as a skilled Iraqi exile seeking work in Dubai. The comma in the title is significant. She not answering the question "Why Dubai?", she is asking Dubai "Why?". Why do you reject me? She writes:
Had I been a gypsy dancer, Pilipino escort or Russian club singer, I would have been received in open arms and granted residency in UAE.Why?
being a decent Iraqi hard worker female made me lose my job in UAE and my future.Why? Maybe we will find the answer maybe not. Its the journey that counts.
