For some of us, migration can be the most crucial life decision we will ever make while for others, it is a long waited desire. You will hear of good and bad experiences from those who have lived in foreign countries but never be discouraged from the idea. There are many reasons that can persuade or force someone to migrate including job security, quality of life, education and best of all, a new ‘start’. Whatever you decide to do, this article supports migration as an opportunity for human development and improvement.
Firstly, those horrible experiences that were described to you was simply an issue of adaptation. We all tend to migrate towards progressive metro poles due to the high human development index and a wide range of opportunities. No matter the place, we all need to have a plan. At least possess some qualification/skill or apply for a job previously before moving if you are not migrating through your current job. Reason being, you will need to pay your bills, buy food and access healthcare which is why jobs are of the highest priority.
Secondly, the mindset of the working class is a simple cycle of work and home with the exceptions of weekends or off-days depending on your job. However, it is not all gray as people do make time for their personal lives like dating, social gatherings and social activities including classes and night school. You must be willing to except these conditions and you will realize, it is not much different to your current daily schedule. In addition to those who failed at migration, it may also be due to their lack of commitment to focus and dedicate themselves to work and accomplishment as it is not an easy task.
Another important factor is the quality of life offered by foreign countries. Surely, everyone will say that crime exists globally and while that may be true, when stacked against the size of the population, ratios can differ greatly. It is possible to find cities and towns where the annual crime rate may be lower than some third world countries’ monthly rate. Similarly, healthcare is one of the most important factors when choosing a new home. Healthy working citizens or labor force(GNP) reflects a developing country hence the reason in First World countries, access to top healthcare is readily available under their systems.
The opportunity to study at world renowned universities is invaluable as it may guarantee a successful career and future. Consequently, having jobs that are readily available for educated and skilled people in all fields, motivates citizens to pursue such career paths in First World Countries. Another positive of tertiary education at such universities is the fact that the degrees and certificates are recognized globally allowing students to easily migrate to other countries and cities without the worry of job criteria and acceptance.
In conclusion, not everyone will support migration as it can be tough however, for those who are willing to sacrifice and persevere, they will certainly be rewarded. The choice is yours but before making any decision, always look at the pros and cons beforehand.
