"My role model is… well it is very hard. I have so many role models: my mum, my sisters, my grandmother and friends.

My mum because she helped me through so much. Without her, I would never have been able to complete university as she helped me raise my son. I am so blessed to have her in my life.
My sisters, even though I am older than them I am so amazed what strong women they have grown up to be. They are amazing and I hope that they learned it from me.

My grandmother - she is so sweet. Always there when I need her, she is a harsh and strong woman and she gives you the best advice even if you don’t like her. We call her “maalab”, which means “honey” in English.

Finally, friends. Very unique friends. They’re amazing even at the worst times they’re with me. They’re weird, goofy, funny, sometimes annoying but I love them."
