Season 4, Episode 22. Mahdia left her hometown of Dhaka, Bangladesh when she was 19. Within a year, she'd settled into adulthood and expat life simultaneously in her new home of Wollongong, Australia. She loved her life, her friends, and most importantly, the person she'd become.
When she moved back to Dhaka three years later, Mahdia quickly realized her new identity didn't quite fit in. As she'd wanted to get her master's degree in Germany, anyway, she sent off applications and within a year was back off to life as an expat. This time, she was living more of a nomadic existence. Her master's program took her to Germany, Argentina, and Thailand.
Now back in Berlin, Mahdia is exhausted from the nomadic life. She shares why she's decided to settle in to life in Berlin, what she's gained from all of her relocations, and what she's lost.
