You want to know more about me? Lemme tell you.. I am Not Your Arab Girl and I never will be.
So Lets start from the beginning. I was Born in London to Egyptian Parents, making me come from great heritage and culture. I get to have the tanned skin, curly hair, thick lips and a waist that can bellydance since I was 6. However I also get the taboos, the fear, the stereotype of being an Arab Woman.I lived my childhood travelling between England and Egypt. My mom couldn’t decide because she just wanted me to stay away from corruption, she wanted me to be a good kid. When I was 7, my parents took me to Egypt to live there for the first time in order for me to learn Arabic. From Primary till College (Sixth form/ High-school/ Sanawy- whatever you call it) I kept moving countries and moving schools until my mum finally decided to let me settle in England for College and University. Before this move I was in a school in Egypt for a few years, where I made some amazing friends x
Since then, I’ve made a life for myself in London and I got used to it. Like I’ve said I have always been rebellious, so I was getting into trouble in Egypt and when I came back to settle here I learned the art of hiding. Thats how I was able to figure myself out detaching myself from religion and culture.
Since moving to London, I got to meet so many great people and have great opportunities. I’ve learned to be ok that I am not perfect and I will never be and I will never be able to please someone with who I am.I’ve had some crazy funny experiences that I wanna share, to help other girls like me or just to entertain someone x
