I dream of being followed by a snake. I am in my small remote village. I am alone in the house. Sometimes the snake comes through the door, sometimes it is just there in the middle of the room. When I see them I want to jump over them but I cannot. I am frozen. No one comes to help. I wake up still frozen, unable to scream.
Why I wear Niqab:
I adopted it by myself, in my family they discouraged me from wearing it. I am the only one of my sisters who wears it. It is a personal choice, it is not forced. I am imitating my cousins. Their brothers ordered them to wear the niqab. It was forced on them but not on me. I feel more free when I am wearing it. It is comfortable for me.
Three things I am looking for in a husband:
2. He should be known figure (famous)
3. He should give me freedom to do what I want
If you had to be an animal, what animal would you be? The dog because it is very loyal
What does the west need to know about the Islamic world that they don't understand:
It may appear at first glance that Yemen is ignorant and backwards but this is wrong, we have more freedoms than you think. There are certain freedoms here that you cannot have in Europe. For example, you can be invisible when wearing the Niqab. You can do things unseen. Like a ghost.
