One Big Family | Manama
Why does Adel love Bahrain? His answer is simple.
“Home is where the heart is, and this is where my heart is,” Adel writes, describing his relationship with his homeland of Bahrain.
Adel believes that Bahrain is the most liberalized country in the region. He also finds it is not just Bahrainis that call the island home. Adel has seen how people of countless other nationalities prefer to live and work in Bahrain instead of their home countries around the world.
“A leader in education, industry, banking, and information and communications technology, it’s heavy for opportunities,” Adel writes of Bahrain. “Here you can get the best education, work in your dream job and live the best quality life ever. And, as a bonus, everyone in Bahrain knows each other. It’s like being a member of a very huge family.”
Now, Adel is actively involved in connecting that family online.
Adel has noticed an increased interest in social media in Bahrain over the past year. He believes media is constantly evolving, from one-way communication to full interaction with audiences via text, photos, audio and video.
Through his job at the e-government authority and as a board member for the Social Media Club Bahrain, Adel is dedicated to promoting social media. He hopes to raise awareness between his countrymen and other Gulf Cooperation Council countries on how to best use social media and utilize the tools it offers.
