Introducing myself and my journal
I am an American Arab (Palestinian born in the States). I lived in the States for several years but I spent my childhood and teen years in many developing countries. It is an experience that I would not trade. I am now living in an Arab city in Israel with my husband and three children. I am a freelance writer, and my work appears in a couple of different newspapers. I love to write - it is how I am able to express my true self, and gives me a chance to meet interesting people. Although I write about a variety of subjects, my stories about the effects of the occupation of Palestine are closest to my heart. I love to tell the stories of individuals, rather then writing daily news stories. Living here has taught me so much about my own culture and the political situation, and I am constantly trying to learn more. I hope that through my writing, I have had an impact, however small it may be.
What a nice idea World Pulse is........a nice way for women to share their stories with each other!
