Tanai Benard, a mother of 3 currently living an amazing life in a foreign country. She’s truly showing us how it’s possible to live your dreams no matter what your circumstances are. –
Tanai Benard a school teacher and single mother of three children ages 5,6 and 8 made a decision that ultimately changed their lives forever. In 2013, Tanai’s marriage was in shambles and at the time her then husband agreed that they were in need of a change. Tanai figured that moving to another country would be the best thing for the family of five, yet she soon learned that her then husband had other plans.
While packing and getting ready for their new journey in the UAE she received a call from her husband who worked offshore, saying “I am just going to stay aboard the ship and ride it out.” As you can imagine Tanai was devastated as her plans for her family took a turn for the worse. She had to now accept her husband’s decision and began their new journey without her husband by her side. There were other devastating surprises along the way, but that didn’t stop Tanai from moving forward with her life and starting over as they boarded a plane four deep.
According to the Travel Guru, starting over and getting a job was quite simple for Tanai Benard. Tanai stated, “Getting an offer was a breeze. I heard about the position on a whim in March 2013. I applied online to Teachaway and Footprints Recruiting. A few days after applying I had phone interviews for both positions. Before I knew it, I had advanced to the face-to-face interview phase for both positions. By the end of April/beginning of May I had 2 teaching offers. I had no clue where my journey was taking me but by the end of August I had sold and “sowed” our belongings, rented out my home and the kids and I uprooted our lives and was on a plane to the Arabian Gulf.”
Since their move to the UAE, the kids by amazement have grown and matured beautifully. After dealing with the reality of their parents’ divorce they are excelling and currently attend an American curriculum private school where they are learning Arabic and French. All three children maintain an A or A/B average. The children now get the opportunity to be a part of extracurricular activities and interact with other children from all over the world.
