My new poetry video is for my poem called “The Choice.” It was first written when I was in grade 12 about how I felt picking my programs in university, and essentially choosing my career path. It wasn’t easy, but I ended up making the right choice (Alhamdulilah) after my first year of university when I switched my program from studying Biology and English to studying Dear Journalism, English, and Creative Writing. After I made that choice and realized it was the right one, I went back and edited this poem to reflect a bit of my decision-making experience during those 2 years. I hope many people facing a life-impacting choice can relate to the feelings described in this poem.
Fun Fact: It was SO cold while filming this that a few of my fingers were still numb for 2 days afterward. And I was wearing leather gloves!
Thank you so much Nuha Elalem, for editing and filming this video in the freezing cold with me!
