UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - April 18th, 2018 - Young American Expat goes global and launches YoungExpat.com to cater to growing trend of expat living and travel abroad
There is growing interest in the concept of storytelling lives and travel abroad, particularly the younger demographic
United Arab Emirates (UAE) – 18 April 2018 – Young American Expat, the online digital storytelling platform of the 9 million Americans who live abroad, has recently launched YoungExpat.com.
Founded in 2015 initially as a blog, Young American Expat grew organically given its name and also simple concept – showcasing the lives of those abroad from the American expatriate community. This works two ways – showing Americans back in the USA the lives and idea of life abroad of the community abroad, as well as those abroad the Americans who are, at present, residing in their current location overseas. Young American Expat went through a revamp last year and is currently operating as the platform of digital storytelling.
According to the founder of Young American Expat Richie Santosdiaz, “When I first started Young American Expat back in 2015 I initially used it as a blog to storytell my life. Seeing interest in the concept it went through a rebrand last year and now focuses on the lives of all Americans, particularly those in their 30s and under who often get ignored and forgotten about.”
YoungExpat.com will initially be a blog that will be managed by Young American Expat, which will be open to aspiring expat and travel writers from all nationalities who are looking to share their own stories and opinions about the expatriate lifestyle, in particular, from a younger point of view.
Santosdiaz says, “Young Expat will initially be a blog, like how Young American Expat started when I created it back in 2015. However, I see much potential to expand this and later down the line bring a dedicated team to run and explore other ways of digital storytelling beyond a blog.”
According to the US State Department, there are approximately 9 million Americans who live abroad. With respect to the globally, around 3.1% of the world’s population would be considered expats.
