10 facts about you

I was tagged by Hadeel bintfalasteen to write 10 interesting things about myself. Because it’s her, I’ll do it :)

1. My name means peace in Arabic, and I aways thought that was beautiful considering that I am Palestinian, a land that has craved peace & freedom for decades. It also represents an important principle that my religion, islam  teaches. And lastly, it describes me pretty well. I tend to think of my personality as more peaceful than belligerent haha. My parents done did gooood picking my name out lol. It’s also the name of an Arabian princess #royal & Salma Hayek (who is gorggg).

2. I love art history. Take me to a museum, I can tell you all about the artists, their techniques, what time period they drew, what art movements they led, etc.

3. I’m 21 years old & in my first year of medical school. My school focuses on preventative medicine, and minority health, health disparities, etc. :)

4. I’m conversational in English, Arabic, and Spanish. 

5. I LOVE to read. Seriously. Dystopia, romance, historical-fiction, fantasy, mystery, you name itttt. 

6. Grew up in Brooklyn and I am def a city girl at heart. Speed walking is my favorite mode of travel hehe. I have allergies and I hate bugs too much to be a nature lover

7. I have zero tolerance for someone who is unappreciative. The most unattractive quality a human can have is to be ungrateful and not see how blessed they are and to constantly complain and make themselves appear like they’re the victim of the world.

8. I lived in Amman, Jordan for a year! & I think that shaped me so much as a person.

9. It’s my dream to belly dance like Shakira and travel a lot! Well that’s after achieving my goal of becoming a powerful, self-sufficient woman that can provide for my parents, and children. I don’t want to depend financially on ANY man. *snaps*

10. I think I can be tough on myself, always seeing room for improvement, and thinking about how I could have done something better. But one thing I am thankful I got right is that I am a great friend. 

I’ll tag my favorite blogs:

I would like to be known as an intelligent woman, a courageous woman, a loving woman, a woman who teaches by being.

Go to school and study hard kids, yo mama ain’t travel halfway across the world for this

scrolling  down my FB newsfeed like….wow I hate 90% of you. 5% I have zero feelings for. And the 5% are alright. *face palm*

FLASHBACK FRIDAY

What though the radiance which was once so bright
Be now for ever taken from my sight,
Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind
William Wordsworth, “Ode: Intimations of Immortality” (via booksquoteslove)

WEIRD hahaha

taweeelashawq:

During the time of hardship we should try to pray the Du’aa of Yunus alayhisalaam frequently.

لا اله الا أنت سبحانك إني كنت من الظالمين
[laa ilaha illa anta subhanak inni kuntu minadh-dhaalimeen]

Me: I hate schoooool. I hate EKGssssss

Mama: What do you need? Do you want a break? Wanna go shopping with me?!

Me: YES I WANT BUT I CANT. I also need a hot, smart, good man who will marry and love me.

Mama: Oh Ok. I will work on finding him. 

LMAO my mom is mad cute. :’)

*She went shopping and brought me a delicious iced coffee. She knows me so well*

Destroy the idea that men should respect women because we are their daughters, mothers, and sisters. Reinforce the idea that men should respect women because we are people.
