I am the first girl who did go to university in my family and from that time I decided to be different from what I see and refuse to embrace. In my community you could see all kind of abuse that hidden between the walls of houses and am not using home because home is where you feel safe and to make along story short it did happen one day after seeing a close friend to me beaten by her brother in the middle of the street in front of us because a guy asked her for the time and she answered him and then the forbidden happened "she talked with a guy and her brother saw her!!".

The feelings and thoughts was clear that day for me and I decided to be a change agent, I fought for my education in a conservative family and get the education that I want ... I opened the door for my family girls to say I want to study in University.

I found world pulse website and joined it to know women and to get the new ideas and read about their rich life .. because when we connect we will be stronger with each other experiences..
