Exploring the sand waves that flow across a stark landscape of Middle Eastern fauna. I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate Earth Day.

jemmacraig The beautiful view from last night’s private dinner with Mr. Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of @EmaarDubai. I was amongst the industry’s top influencers, @taimalfalasi @mthayelalali @therealfouz and @fozaza; each of us marvelled in the vision and determination of Mr. Alabbar.

Today, @EmaarDubai launched #TheTowerAtDCH. The new tower will be taller than the world’s tallest @BurjKhalifa and it’s @EmaarDubai’s tribute to the positivity, energy and optimism of this glorious country that I now call home.

jemmacraig I ended this wonderful day by watching the sunset from @TheTerraceDCH, which is now open every weekend from 10am to 10pm.
A huge thank you to @EmaarDubai for the incredible helicopter ride over Dubai. I'm still going through my photographs, but you can see it all on my Snapchat.

jemmacraig I'm currently enjoying the panoramic views of #Dubai's soaring skyline from @TheTerraceDCH, which sits next to Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary.

Thanks to @EmaarDubai, I'll be seeing this city from above in a few hours. #🚁

jemmacraig I woke up in Edinburgh this morning and I'll be falling asleep in Dubai tonight. I love that feeling, don't you? 5mon

jemmacraig 2015 didn’t start so good. I was hospitalised with meningitis in January. Recovery was very, very slow, but I eventually fought the virus and was back to full health. From that moment on (up until August, to be exact), my life entirely revolved around my masters degree. I wrote my thesis about Francesca Woodman’s fashion photography, which has since been widely published (hooray). It was a thrill to receive a first-class distinction for my degree after all the hard work. After graduation, I was awarded a scholarship by the University of Edinburgh to work in Dubai for three months. The scholarship resulted in a permanent position in digital marketing. 2015 has been the most defining year of my life so far. In my early twenties, I’m now settled in the Middle East and pursuing my dreams - much to my family’s delight. Though 2015 was the year I lost my constant, my grandmother, her grit and strength of character continues to motivate and inspire me in ways that 2016 will stand as evidence.

Wishing each and every one of you a wonderful, happy and healthy 2016.
