About Me: 

Before I start the introduction of myself I must explain why I am writing here, to me it does not matter who I am or what I have achieved in life so far, what matters is that I need to get rid of my frustration, yes frustration at women and illiteracy. I am in a village where most cannot write their names, and if we pass that we reach another number of women who even though educated they have not stepd further to even learn basics in health, child rearing, qualification is purely a piece of paper on the wall. I am not saying I know best, I am looking for ways to share knowledge of daily health issues, knowledge that we all can develop and learn new skills, we all can be women with knowledge. I find myself a lonely voice and aim to change that, but need to add to my ideas and need a support network.

Now, In brief I am a 38 year old house wife, Iraqi by origin, British by nationality, living in Tunisia due to husband being Tunisian, thats in short. I have 1 diamond in my life thats my daughter, 10 years of age. Over the years worked in many places from banks to hospitals, learning from work & life. Education finished college in business & finance but while working did NLP, which i found to be of so much help to me and others. Now I am living a small village where I built own house and have a caw project.

My Passions: 
helping others, learning, gaining useful knowledge
My Challenges: 
to put into action, dealing with a differently formatted mind
My Vision for the Future: 
all women educated with healthy siblings
My Areas of Expertise: 
Fluent in two languages, planning, organising, networking
My Languages: 
Arabic, English
