Finally, and after many days of my family's encouragement and insistence,I have decided to join them at this blog.
First of all, hello to every reader, especially our participant friends, whose names are mentioned many times a day (Fayrouz, Jeff, Shawn, and David ).
Now I will introduce myself, I was born in December 1957 in Baghdad, I was the second child in my family. Few months later, my father had a fellowship to study for a Ph.D. degree in the US. So, we left Baghdad and settled there, thus, my childhood started in the state. We returned to Iraq when I was 5 years old. I started my study in Baghdad, I finished my secondary school with an average degree of 88%. At the same time I was engaged to my cousin (he was studying in the medical college).
I had to choose a college, my degree afforded me to choose any college, but I preferred to enter the engineering college, since I was married and the period of study was only 4 years .
I graduated from Mosul university at 1979, my sequence was the third on my class. In the meantime I was 6 month pregnant with my first child.
After my graduation, my husband had a training course at the U.S, He took me with him and I had delivered my first baby girl there. I visited many places in the states and took pictures at the same places which I had visited 16 years before. We spent 6 months in the states, then we returned back to Baghdad, carrying our baby.
I started my job at the university of Mosul sinceI was one of the distinguished. At Sep. 1979, I was preparing for my baby's 1st birthday, but few days before, the war started with Iran. Since that time we started our struggle and nightmares in Iraq.
To be continued..
