I am a Palestinian from Gaza City. I am a journalist. I am a blogger. I am a mother. I am a Muslim. I am a Media Activist. This blog is about the trials of raising my children between spaces and identities; displacement and occupation; and everything that entails from potty training to border crossings.
Currently, we are based in the United States, unable to return to or even visit Gaza due to the siege. My husband is a Palestinian refugee denied his right of return to Palestine, and thus OUR right to live together as a family in our own land. Together, we endure a lot, and the personal becomes political. This is our story.
