Living my dream

When I was a little girl I remember telling my siblings that I have two personalities; the first is Noof as they know and the other one is the American personality and I named her "Suzie" how funny is that XD it has always been my dream to visit USA and experience living there .... Guess what


Today I am at United States pursing my masters at University of Pennsylvania 

No Magic was required to make my dream came true all I needed was to "believe that it will happen in the right time " I know this might sound like ridiculous topic to talk about and what a goal !! to me it is not just to live the western life, it is to know my true self without any instructions, to appreciate everything that I have. Also to learn how to be independent. Most importantly I want to inspire others.

The journey to get here took lots of courage and determination I had to be sure that this is what I really wanted and I have to be clear why do I really want it. For me this has made a huge shift in the way I perceive my goals.

It was not an easy thing to chase at all, I still recall some of my colleagues have put me down saying there won't be any chance for me to go. But I did :) Have faith in your dream, chase it as it will happen eventually nothing is impossible . Surround yourself with positive people who believes in you.

This doesn't tell you that I have achieved everything I wanted! I still have more to go and I know with hard work and faith I will get there !! I am really grateful for my family support although my parents were not so excited about me moving away from them. And I truly appreciate those who believed in me and know that I can achieve what I always aim for

More responsibilities are on its way! and hopefully I will be up to them

Keep your happy thoughts coming

My Experience with NO Snapchat

kind of awkward  post I know but I thought it would be nice to share my experience with you guys living for almost two weeks without snapchat


How did it start 

I always felt like I have to reduce checking on snapchat , every morning I wake up am like ok where is my phone whats new on snapchat and that is totally unhealthy
So I felt I should stop using it for awhile , after reading Michelle Phan Book specially the social media or digital detox part am like hmmm now it is the right time to do it ,  the same day I finished reading the book I was like Okay this is it! lets delete this App and have little peaceful break

Can Creating a loving world a "possible" mission ?

When you think about it ....we are all human being "regardless" of labels "we" have created it 



scattered thoughts.....

living for almost a year in a complete different culture , being exposed to this whole new experience  made me realize that we are all same ...

I had friends from different parts of the world , with different backgrounds , different religion . I was not sure if being around  so many people with variety of differences was a safe enough for me  to do , I admit that I had this misconception that I might not be "welcomed" cause I cover my head but I guess such fears were implanted in my head due to what was presented in media , though , I literally stopped watching/reading news. But all what is out there highlights

Fear
Anger
Differences
injustice


But in community I lived with , I have learned that we  all have a goal which is larger than us .... help others to flourish , we were always there for each other whenever we needed support , we ar…
