Assalamualaykum and merhaba everyone! I'm back from Turkey and I had a phenomenal time, alhamdulillah. I wanted to blog about this before leaving but things didn't work out that way. I was featured in Hijab Fesyen's August 2014 edition issue under their "Blogger Sukses" (Successful Blogger) section. It was kind of them to feature me, honestly. I don't think I have achieved much but God willing, I hope to fulfill more of my goals and aspirations so I can help the community in any way I can.
If you don't live in Malaysia and/or you don't read Bahasa Malaysia, I'll briefly describe what the article was all about - from blogging to my online business. Most bloggers attain fame and popularity by sharing all the fun things they get up to and I love reading about them but I personally feel it would be misleading for me to portray my life that way. I started blogging because I wanted to change people's perception about Muslim women in the West and also to help Muslim women who can relate to me and my thoughts and struggles as a Muslim and a woman. Over the years I have made many acquaintances and friends through my blog and it's been an eye-opening experience getting to know them. I feel blessed to have a blog!
