What does the name of your country mean?

Globalism: the new nationality

From my perspective, there is an increased desire to travel to countries and to immerse onself in foreign cultures. These days it seems as though the question of "where are you from?" is often not received with a unidimensional answer, especially among third culture kids and even expats. Hence the rise in the use of... Continue Reading →

Eid Al-Fitr

The holy month of Ramadan has come and gone 😦 and as sad I am to see it pass, I know that it was a month well spent. Eating together with my family, serving community members that came by every Friday, and praying (whether it was by myself or with a group of people). But... Continue Reading →

There was a period of time in my life when any negative comment about my body would cut me deep and I would spend hours or days trying to figure... Continue Reading →

Que Mundo Marvilhoso

They say anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
