About Me:I am Ibtissam from a small city in the North of Morocco ( Alhoceima) I was born there and I lived there till the age of 13 years old then I moved with my parents to a bigger city where I have studied till I got my high school diplomat then I moved to the biggest city in Morocco( Casablanca) in order to further my studies in English language and Literature I have studied 4 years there..then moved again to the capital of Morocco to further my Masters studies in Communication. I started teaching English as a foreign language,then Arabic for non native speakers. I got a Fulbright scholarship to teach and study in the US. It's one of the most fruitful experiences for me. I have discovered another culture and at the same time I have improved my skills in intercultural communication. I came back to Morocco with a lot of energy to become a full time professor of communication. At the same time I am a journalist. I write and translate articles about social isssues. I do volunteer work at an elderly house where I take care of women. I love what I am doing and I am willing to do anything to contribute to the wellness of our world.

My Passions:Reading, writing

My Challenges:create an association for the benefits of my community

My Vision for the Future:by helping each other the future will be brighter

My Areas of Expertise:Communication, photography, organization of events, languages

Welcome Ibtassam, Your introduction about yourself is quite interesting with your wide range of experiences. I hope you will share more of your writing with us. I'd also be interested in hearing about the elderly women you volunteer to help-how are the elderly treated in your culture? How we treat our older citizens is of great concern to me, especially since I'm getting closer to that category!! I invite you, also to join the World Pulse Book Club. We share books, articles, any writings of our own countries or others giving all members an opportunity to learn of and read books we may not know of in our own countries. As a journalist, I am sure you have some recommendations for all of us. Peace to you, Bonnie

I am really pleased to be here within this great community. I will write an article about elderly people in my community based on my experience at the elderly house and based on what I see everyday.
