My family and I have completely different political views. My family are conservatives while I lean towards the right wing of the political spectrum. I have very strong and my friends may say I'm very opinionated when it comes to politics. Why a liberal? I wouldn't say I am at the end of the spectrum, because I believe that the spectrum should not be generalised. As societies are progressing, so should our belief system and that no country's political/economic/social views should remain the same. To conclude, our political view should not be going the opposite as the community and that our political view should meet the supply and demand for that specific country.
As you can probably tell, I'm Muslim and I was born one. As far it goes my whole family tree are ones too. I did face some adversities and criticism because of my hijab(scarf) but it was never anything extreme. I feel like in society, there is this double standard I'm held to. I started wearing my scarf when I was in my last year of elementary and I noticed a difference in the way people around me treated me. Most often "the girl with the scarf" is stereotypes as being "not fun", "judgemental". When I ddnn't wear it, I was perceived as more liberated and modernised. But once I started wearing it, people acted like I was this whole different person. As for in my community, when I didn't wear the hijab, I was seen as the "bad girl" and vise versa. It's a choice I made and it might come with some challenges but I don't want the scarf I wear on my head to define me as a person. I get questions from strangers at least twice a day asking me about my religion or what my scarf means to me. I don't take any offence because I believe it's better to establish the truth, rather than letting an individual believe what the media portrays.
NETFLIX RULES!!! I don't know how I'll manage without Netflix. I'm usually not that obsessed with any show but "Friends" is one to be obsessed with. I started watching this show in my second grade of High School after being introduced to it by my CALM teacher. She showed us a few clips as an example of passive-passive, passive-aggressive, etc. Ever since I started watching and fell in love with the sitcom. Other shows I'm currently enjoying include: Supernatural(completed), Game of Thrones(completed and eagerly waiting for finally), Hannibal, Outlander, FBI:Criminal Pursuit, and Forensic Files, just to name a few.
Music. Sound. Rhythm. Outburst. I listen to music to block out all the noises and I read books to expand my imagination. When I'm listening to music or reading an interesting book, I find myself lost and time runs by quickly. I don't have a specific music I listen to because it depends on my mood at the time. Naturally, I enjoy upbeat and loud music such as R3HAB, Martin Garrix, AC/DC, and Johnny Cash. As for books, I'm currently reading "Three Wishes" and "Big Little Lies" both by Liane Moriarty. Next on "My List of Books" is "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett.
I LOVE LOOOOVVVVVEEEEE POETRY!!! I'm not the best at writing it but most often, one will find me listening to some kind of poetry. The most poems I read about or listen to are about the social unjust. I LOVE when the poets tell their story through emotions and I try to sympathize with and understand them. I believe that when a person tells their story with emotions, it truly shows who that person is as an individual.
When I first came to Canada, I wanted to become a lot of things such as an elementary school teacher, a scientist, and there was even a moment I wanted to be an astronaut after watching a short video. Recently I've been interested in becoming a police officer after going on a field trip for Career Day. My goal is to become a detective before the age of 30(inshallah: if god wills) and join the military. At this age, I don't exactly know what I want to be, but I know it's around the law.
