Windsor Star Article about France!

France
Happy to be a part of this Windsor Star article! It’s so inspiring to see where other university students travelled to and hear about their experiences. I truly believe that studying abroad is one of the greatest things you can do because it allows you to grow so much as a person, and will give you new perspectives on life that you would’ve never experienced otherwise.

“The Choice” Poetry Video!!

Hey guys!

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!

“Masterpiece” Poetry Video!!

Hey guys!

So this poem, called “Masterpiece,” is the part 2 of my two part series of poems about writing. “Masterpiece” is about how I feel when I get an idea and write an entire story all at once. Many people can relate to this: maybe you’ve finished an entire assignment or difficult job in one night. That’s what this poem is about.

Fun fact: All the pages used in this video are actually part of a story I wrote six years ago.

Thank you so much, Nuha, for filming and editing this video and letting me use your room for the setting. Again. 🙂

My First Poetry Video!

So I officially posted my first ever poetry video on YouTube. It’s a poem called “Writer’s Block.” I had so much fun filming it with the lovely Nuha Elalem. Thank you so much, Nuha, for filming and editing this video and letting me use your room for the setting.

I hope you like it!! So without further adieu, here it is 🙂
