My name is Haifa, like “High five 🖐” just with a “faa” in the end.
I find writing this caption to represent myself not easy. Answering the question of “Who are you?” always seems complicated to me.
As I believe we are diverse infinite beings that are constantly evolving.
Anyhow, let me try sharing a bit about myself.
My soul was born in a female body.
Ever since I was born I was a day dreamer, a thinker, and a little bit of a rebel.
One of my biggest achievements is challenging my strict school principle with the concept of the school system, then quitting my full time comfortable job in TV to travel the world and launch my YouTube channel.
I started as a girl who wants to bridge between cultures and wipe away stereotypes and racism creatively.
My videos reached millions of views and received many awards.
I then grew to care about my inner world fulfillment more than anything, this feeling of receiving an inner award means a lot to me.
I dream to use my voice on social media for a positive reason. I’m aware of how toxic social media could get and how it can affect our mental health, I want to be a part of the positive force and healing.
Lastly I was a girl who built a la la land in her mind, became a part time unicorn 🦄 part time workaholic. I guess that was my way to deal with the unpleasant part of life.
Then I became a person who was hit by reality especially when I had time to think about it, I saw many things that hurt me and I would cry some nights, feel helpless in another, or even guilty for not being able to do much for a lot of
One of my biggest realizations was the effect of the patriarchy on our communities that I thought was long gone.
I was shocked to see the low key control it has over our community and women since history.
And sometimes, we don’t even know it.
We’re afraid to see it. Because fighting it will not be easy …. not only will we be dealing with patriarchy and what it brings, but we might be attacked by some women in the process.
I channel the energy and connect with all
The great women and men that lived and fought for a cause peacefully, creatively, and powerfully.
On this earth we may pay our human tax,
And be of service.
