my name is Donya-Almously. I am a tenth grade student at the American Community
School in Beirut, Lebanon. I am half Saudi Arabian and half Iranian but
I live in LebanonÖisnít that weird. Let me tell you a bit about myself.
I like to do a lot of things in my spare time. I like sports, art, writing,
and reading. But my passion is for music and dancing. I donít have a favorite
band or favorite type of music. I can listen to anything and everything
that attracts my attention. I love to dance! By dancing I express a part
of myself. The rhythm of the music is like the voice of my soul; I can
feel it and I can move with it. Another thing that I tend to do is to express
my strongest thoughts and personal feelings through poetry. I love writing
poetry, it helps me say the things that people donít understand and it
gives me a chance to let everything out, rather than having it build up
I also love
traveling. My parents have taken my sisters and I to so many places around
the world that many people donít get to go to in their entire lifetime.
And I thank my parents very much for that. I want to travel to everywhere
in the world. I want to learn more about other cultures and other lifestylesÖI
want to see everything and I want to experience a lot, whether it is good
or bad experience. I want my life to be exciting and I want to learn something
new every day about life and about myself. I donít want to waste time.
I want to live life as if today was my last day on earth. But at the moment
I am not able to do many of the things I want to do because I am still
under my parentsí roof and there still are rules that I have to follow
and except. But one day Iíll be able to do the things I want to do. My
goal for now is to concentrate on my studies because that is the first
step I need to be able to become independent and once I have that, I could
have everything. Remember the mind is most powerful thing.
is something I wrote:
can't live with them and you can't live without them. They are your past
your present and your future. You can't have any say in what your memories
were and are going to be. It is very important to cherish moments so that
they could become your memories forever and will always be in your heart.
Memories are based on the way you feel at that moment for it to be in your
mind and in your heart forever. There are memories that are so wonderful
and loving that you never want to forget, but there are memories that are
so sad and tragic that you never can forget. Some memories give you joy
while other memories give you pane. Memories are things to look forward
to and things to regret...but without these memories there is nothing to
you but the future. And there comes a time where the past is very important
to you and without these memories you have no past therefore you have no
future. To live your future you must live your past and your past is the
memories. Never forget the past and never forget the memories whether they
are good or bad because without them you have everything of nothing.
DONYA AL MOUSLY.
