What does life as a woman or girl look like in your country / city / town / village? Any issues / challenges / exciting milestones?
In Morocco, it is still common that a woman should be married as soon as she turns 18. She will be forced to marry a man twice her age or more in an arranged marriage by both families just to be considered a real woman. Some families are aware nowadays that this is not the best option, but some unfortunately still think it's the only one.
What would you like the world to know about YOU? What life experience, challenge or achievement do you want to share?
When I was 13, I was coming back from school and a man followed me home for over 15 mins trying to talk to me! Yes, my mom warned me about me these 'bad guys' but still, I was so scared and terrified. As I got home, I locked myself in and tried to calm down. I called my mom and the second she arrived, I saw him running to another girl trying to harass her. Now she had to feel what I felt and go through what I had been going through - what a tragic world we are living in!
