At American Wasta, our mission is crystal clear: to empower fellow expats like you to not just survive but thrive in the UAE.

We’ve seen many foreigners arrive in this exciting land, only to depart too soon because they grappled with the unfamiliar challenges of this new territory.

But with American Wasta by your side, consider those challenges a thing of the past. Picture having me as your personal guide, offering you a shortcut through the maze so you won’t have to learn the hard way.

Hey there! I’m Qadr Brown, and welcome to my corner of the web.

Born in North Carolina, but a UAE resident for most of my life, I’ve had the incredible privilege of calling multiple Emirates home and exploring the unique facets of this amazing country.

My grownup journey began in 2016 when I took on the role of Assistant Supervisor at the American School of Creative Science. I cherished my time there, but as life goes, I had to move on after a few years.

I dabbled in a couple of jobs, but the instability that often tags along with traditional employment didn’t quite align with my vision.

And that’s why I decided to venture on my own business.

The ‘American Wasta’ Connection

Now, you might be wondering about the name. Well, it’s simple – I’m American, and there’s no better term than ‘wasta’ to encapsulate everything I’m about.

In the Gulf, having ‘wasta’ is like having a golden ticket. It’s an iconic Arabic term that signifies the incredible power of connections and influence.

And here at American Wasta, we’re all about leveraging that power to make your UAE journey a roaring success.
