I’m a Middle Eastern gal that grew up here globetrotting all of her life. I’ve camped in Petra and walked through Wadi Moussa; I’ve touched the sky at Burj Khalifa and heard the moazen from the Sheikh Zayed Mosque; I’ve driven through the streets of Riyadh (shhhhh!) and been accused of indecency by their religious police; I’ve climbed the great Pyramids, and marched in Tahrir square; I’ve haggled in Souk al-Hamidiyeh and have walked through the great Umayyad mosque; I’ve hung out with American soldiers and admired the beauty of the Pearl and Oyster fountain in Doha; and, finally, I’ve celebrated Eid al Fitr with my extended cousins in Beirut and enjoyed the Sunset at SkyBar.

This blog is intended to give you a glimpse of how my experiences, travels, and cultural encounters along with my work have contributed in defining who I am. This blog is the story of a woman who discovers herself. It is not mine alone to tell so I invite you to help me write it.

I see this space as a sanctuary for women who have chosen to join me in unveiling themselves. This is by no means a call to disrespect the hijab but instead an opportunity to appreciate the women who wear it.

Am looking for brave women to tell reality of their live. I do realise how difficult that is. It may be anonomous. In Zaatri, Mafras, Irbid or Amman.
