Introducing myself and my journal: Real Wings

About Me:
In 28 August 2f009, I was connected with AUW(Asian University for Women), where I found the real wings of my high dreams.
I was not able even to dream about a place like AUW before joining this community, but when I see myself among of them. I feel I am dreaming, I see my bright future holding my hand and calling me with loves and hopes. Therefore,from the core of my heart I touch every sign of my future's planning at AUW, whatever it says I make it true for myself because everything is new for me;so, I want these things to be real for ever. While I found this Real Wings at AUW, I started thinking about flying to the highest part of my wisdom for searching of the thing that is still unkown for me, but I believe that one day this Real Wings makes me fly as high as I want. At first the way of finding this Real Wings was gifted by my dear brother Ali Yasir Fayyaz, then Jamal uddin Fayyaz, my father was the third person, who made me to think about getting of this Real Wings, and then my dear mother made it possible for me to be ready for getting it. I took the high expectation and their blessing for coming to AUW. While I saw air plane infront of my eyes, it really made my soul to fly, and my mind to think about flying in the wind of my dreams. In the plane, it was a very unkown feeling inside my heart. While the clouds were passing from my eyes, I felt for a while that I was not from this earthen world, where is full of violent and discrimination. All of them inspired me alot , and these things made me to think about the joyfull and peaceful life. For the first time, I felt a strong woman when I saw Ms Jill Davis, she gave me hope of being a real person only in a real world. While I found myself a woman, who has confident and trust on her abilities. I started to think about my people, who don't feel eachother's pain and always cause pain for eachother. I started from myself, I killed the old thoughts and taughts of my inside, which was given to me by old people. I cleaned my wisdom with love and kindness,and I rescued my spritual mind from negative thoughts. Today, I see myself in a real world with real dreams, which is granted to me by AUW. I call it Real Wings. Thank you AUW.

My Passions:

My Challenges:
Discrimination, violent

My Vision for the Future:
A world without of violent, hunger, and fear

My Areas of Expertise:
creative writing, good communication, and helping women and children

Real Wings

Dear Parwana,

What a joy it is to welcome you to our community of grassroots women leaders and supporters of women's initiatives from over 150 countries. I love your journal as you have shared a very spiritual, excited and determined side of yourself that we would love to hear more about - how this journey to AUW started and why it is important for young Afghan women like you to travel to such a great school and receive an advanced education.

I have met many inspiring young women here on PusleWire from AUW, and someday I would like to visit your school, and see the faces of the women I have met, as well as learn more about this education model that will revolutionize the world!

I hope that you will join us in the Afghanistan Cafe, to share more about your country and meet other young Afghan women who are taking steps to empower themselves and the women around them.

In friendship,
