If I’m to stand next to the nearest mirror, and ask “Mirror mirror on the wall.. who is the fairest of them all?” The creepy creature trapped inside the mirror would sigh deeply, shake its head, open its mouth to say something, decide against it, then simply lift up its hands and go “No Comment!”
Ok I’m sorry I asked! Just to elaborate more on behalf of the wretched mirror that had gone mute on me, I’m a Kuwaiti woman. An 80′s child and a 90′s teenager. I’m married and I have a job, several coffee machines, a big library, and a DSLR Canon that goes everywhere with me. I’m also a vegetarian foodie that’s always on a diet and interested very much in photography which I may pursue for real one day, specifically food photography. I love to read, I’m told I have a unique writing style therefore I have self-published two book that can be found in Amazon and the third book is in the making.
I have been discriminated against, put down, and fought with by many jealous people and relatives. I have a lovely gift of stirring negative feeling in people therefore I’m one big freak magnet. But you know what? It got me where I’m today. I’m a strong willed person and I know exactly what I’m, what I’m capable of, what I want for myself, and where I’m going in life. I live my life the way I want to live it, the way it suits me and not others. I urge you all to do the same and go with your heart. So that 20 or 30 years down the road, if Allah grants us to live until then, you wont look back sadly saying “Had I done that, would my life turned out differently?”
No time for regrets, el 3omor mashee!

Why all the sudden media interest? Well, it started ever since I’ve published the first volume of my humble book called “The Chronicles of Dathra: a Dowdy Girl from Kuwait”. Available from Amazon and select bookstores in Kuwait and Kinokuniya, Dubai
