See, I hadn't yet told my sweet, traditional Arab parents about my new profession, and a write-up on Time.com
meant I had to finally break the news. Let me explain: I’m from Kuwait and came to the states for what was supposed to be four years of university. The fact that I didn’t immediately return to the Middle East after graduation, instead staying in San Francisco to pursue copywriting, already made me something of a “wild thing” in the eyes of my family. Then, in 2014, I started a company called ManServants
, which lets women hire swoon-worthy gentlemen to serve as party entertainment. Wild-thing status, cemented.
