In this international submission, our Wf1 Team Member, Alaa, tells us about looking back on her life to connect the dots of her past. Her life experiences ranging across cultures and geography, lead her to realize that knowing herself as clearly as possible is the best way to arrive at a state of happiness and inner calm.
The Global Sisterhood is honored to present a series of conversations with women of the Middle East. Our intention is to inform, inspire and engage women from other countries to understand the beautiful culture that has evolved throughout the Middle East.
This beautiful story is from a “sister” of mine in Egypt. Our Women For One team member, Alaa, writes a heartfelt explanation of her perspective on women’s role in the Middle East as a 23 year old student in Cairo, Egypt. My heart opens to women all over the world when I speak with Alaa about the suffering that these women endure and the POWER that each of them holds with their thoughts, bodies and most importantly, hearts. Thank you Alaa.
