Henna Tattooes

Where did Henna originate? It is a plant that gorws in Southern Asia, Africa and Northern Australia. It is used in the Mediterranean as boday art. It is said that Muslims, Hindu, Jews, Christians and other religions have used Henna as a form of body art at weddings. Brides as well as some grooms use Henna. It is believed in some cultures that it brings luck and happiness to a marriage.

The brides have the most complicated drawing of Henna on their hands and feet. In some cultures like the Middle East, the bride has her Henna done a day in advance. They call it a Henna party where all of her closests friends and family come together and have Henna done. I enjoy having Henna done just for fun. I think it is a beautiful art and people should experience more of it.

Make-a- Wish

 Last year I started volunteering at Make-a-Wish Foundation. I enjoy it a lot. I get to grant wishes for children who are terminally ill the ages 3 to 18. It is a great oppurtunity to meet and help children make one wish come true. I just finished a wish child not too long ago. She was able to go to Disnely World and meet Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty. She was excited and could not stop talking about the trip and meeting her prince charming. It gives you a great satisfaction that you are able to make a child happy. I am on my second wish child now and she wants to meet Hannah Montana. All she talks about is Hannah Montana this or that. I hope she gets what she wants.  I think people should look into volunteering wish Make-a-Wish. It might take some of your time but in the end it is worth a lot just to hear and see how your wish kid is happy.

How people preseve women in Saudi Arbia

The minisrty of Education for Saudi Arabia is coming to UCO this Friday as well as the govonor or former govonor of Oklahoma I’m not sure. So, the Saudi Student Association at UCO is having an exihbition as well as speakers to talk to people about Saudi Arbia. It is open to everyone. Anyways, I was asked to be a guest speaker and talk about women in Saudi Arbia and how people  preseve women. I already have my speech written and I am hoping that I can send the message across to people that women in Saudi Arbia have rights just as women in America or any where else in world. Women are not forced to marry like people beleive and they don’t walk 10 feet behind their men. People might think that women there are treated unfailry but if they knew that women were CEO’s of companies, journalists, pilots or even work for the Royal family, people’s thoughts would be different. I hope my speech can convey that on Friday.

Difference Between Arabs and Americans

The way Arabs and Americans behave is different. If an American were at a conference or some where where a speech was being presented they know better than to speak out loud and distrup the speaker. Arabs on the other hand don’t know better so far as I can tell. I am talking mostly about Saudi’s. I am a Saudi but I know better than to speak while someone is giving a speech. Friday was the day I spoke infront of the Saudi Cultural Attache. It was a great honor to represent women in Saudi Arbia but the entire time people were giving speeches me included you can hear in the background people talking and in Arabic. So, you know its not Americans. This is something I have noticed about Saudis and is different than Americans. I am not saying that they are like that but a majority are. It is something that annoys me and would like to see change. If a speaker is talking please be quiet and let them speack or leave the room.
