I wear my “whitewashed” label proudly.
I wear my “Arab” label just as proudly.
Welcome to the world of avocado spread and medium-rare steak, and hummus and kebab.
Welcome to tastes of North America, and the aromas of Arabia.
Welcome to my life, where I’m not Western enough, nor Eastern enough.
Welcome to my life, where I haven’t assimilated enough and I’m merely pretending.
Welcome to my life, where I’m too assimilated and forgotten my roots.
Welcome to my life, where East and West fuse, and sometimes collide.
Welcome to my life, where I’ve roughly, but successfully navigated forests and oases.
Welcome to my self-exposé, where I have lived in a paradox for the past twenty-plus years.
Welcome – أهلا وسهلا
