What does life as a woman or girl look like in your country/city/town/village? Any issues/challenges/milestones?

Being a female with dreams in my country presents many challenges. In Morocco, the society is more masculine - doesn't allow women to take a chance and talk for themselves. Our lives are mainly attached to marriage, carrying children, who ever breaks those laws get called the worst names? Why? I guess the reason is going back to the beliefs of individuals in my society. I wish my country would understand the importance of women and their ability to change the world.

What would you like the world to know about YOU? What life experience, challenge or achievement do you want to share?

I want be me. I want to be able to transfer my message to the whole world. Get to live the way I want without borders, without chains.

What are you most passionate about and what are you doing with that passion?

Writing is my passion. I try as hard as I can to make a change. I'm trying with that passion, to create a shelter for women like me. I want them to feel they are not alone whenever they read my stuff.

How have the women and girls around you helped you to get to where you are today?

Aïcha Chenna, one of the women I respect, is an activist social worker. She's a woman that got to stand in front of men and said 'stop the discrimination, stop the hate, women are free.
