Inspired by the lovely Sanchez
I am twenty-two and in denial of my almost adulthood. I am a member of the Middle Eastern youth bulge. I am an opportunity yet to be explored (in that sense). I am a demographic opportunity if I may say.
I am a student. I am a person who finds a learning opportunity in every situation and in everything I lay my eyes upon. I am an artist (because I choose to see the beauty in the world). I am African.
I want to talk about politics and economics and have people listen. I want to make sense.
I am a person with a background so diverse that it might confuse me at times. I have Muslims, Christians, and a Jew in my family. And I am proud of it. I have Egyptian, American and (LOVELY!) English people in my family. And some Austrians and French too. But I am Egyptian and for that I am thankful. I am in love with the Nile and the Red Sea. I have sensory issues when it comes to sand and grass.
I love the sun. I am short and pear shaped. I am the girl with the messy hair and the hazel eyes and bronze skin.
I am the eldest of four, and the pride of two great men, and that I have to live up to (it's a challenge most of the time) I am a role model to two great young ladies and an amazing smart little boy, and for that I have to be perfect. I am a person who makes mistakes, tons and tons of them and sometimes, when it comes to that, I am a slow learner.
I am a person who has lost a lot of friends along the road, but hold on to some of them in my heart and head. I am a slave to words. I love words. Language is an art. And so is Economics. Economics is an art. A philosophical school of thought that analyses the intricate details of the world. The world is economics' lavish Persian carpet. Fit for a royal palace.
I am a girl. A woman? A female. I have a big heart. I can be cold but that's okay. I smile at people. I want to change the world (the definition of the world is a relevant matter)
I dream. I am a dream.
Reality can be beautiful, too.
Now it's your turn, who are you?
