Once upon a time, in fact over 14 years ago, I came back to a place called home. And that, dearest reader, is where my journey began.
Very early in my life I was introduced to NGO work, that is when I had growing interests in vulnerable women, youth, orphans, elderly people, women in prison as well as IDPs and now refugees. I lived the stories of these people in my society, and this has formed a lot of who I am.
Education wise I studied Politics and International Relations, then did a masters in diplomacy though sometimes I wish I did sociology and social work instead. I am currently a PhD candidate on a bigger research on education in humanitarian settings, focusing on adolescent girls- my life passion!
Today, I share my life with a husband, a beautiful son, a little girl and a supportive family (I think this is where I am supposed to insert the names of my pets, sorry, no pets here) I also have a circle of people who have walked into my life in beautiful ways. I guess I love this place so much because it was here my path crossed with amazing young women who I learn from everyday.
I am 30, a mother and lots of interesting and exciting things (sometimes boring too) take place in my life. Here, on this blog, I share those experiences and thoughts, as I have been since 2008 – that is 12 years of blogging!
So come by when you can, get your pyala of chai, and enjoy. Baxer bey, sar sarw sar chaw!
