About the Writer

So I guess this is the section where normal bloggers blabber about their life’s mega-achievements hoping to gain some authority in an attempt to send the implicit message to the reader, “You better read and follow this blog, or else…”

Good news; I’m not normal. In fact, I’m so abnormal that I find myself a walking contradiction sometimes.More good news…you don’t have to read or follow this blog. If you do, then that’s because you choose to.

A few things about me; I’m a big big big dreamer with a pen -sometimes a pencil – and a different look at the world around me. Now there’s a big difference between dreaming and achieving, and let’s just say in my life I do more dreaming than achieving.


The only way I like identifying myself is that I’m a Muslim girl, who believes that there is no God but Allah and that the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the messenger of Allah. But since people are always curious about things like where I come from, I’m a self-proclaimed Kemeni (and before you start googling this word, it’s a word I coined to mean a person with Yemeni roots and Kenyan trunk ( read ‘nationality’)). Since I reside in the UAE, you can say the branch of our tree is Emirati and I don’t know where the leaves would fall.

I’m a student of Engineering. I know it’s the furthest I could get from writing, but I’ve always been in love with words and numbers, and to be honest, being an engineer has given me quite a unique perspective on life.  The notes you see here are reminders to myself before others. They are inspired from different life experiences. Some reflect my present, others come from my past, and some are written preemptively to remind myself of important things in case I forgot one day down the road. Some of my notes may contain pearls of wisdom, others are pure nonsense. Some address a specific audience, others talk to anyone with a heart, a mind and soul. Some are emotional, others are rational. Some are funny, others are sad. Some talk about Deen, others talk about Dunya. My notes tend to reflect who I am as a person; moody and unpredictable.

Thanks for visiting my blog and enjoy.

    Hey Amina

    Its really a wonderful effort on your side. Well no doubt, i have often noticed you sketching and doing many other creative things in the class, i realised that moment itself taht i am watching a person with infinitely wide talents and imagination. This blog , no doubt, is the logical culmination of that. Anyways my best wishes for you and this blog.
