I met a woman who has … Read the rest
I believe in writing. Ever since I learned to read, I wrote novels, plays, and even some musical scores. I believe that writing is a therapeutic essence that cannot be found elsewhere.

Sometimes the pages would even be filled … Read the rest

While many college students in the United States know part time work as a fairly ubiquitous and many times necessary aspect of attending a university, such as working in a restaurant, bussing tables, cleaning yards, mowing grass, or putting up fences like here, who offers student work.
The same cannot be said of students studying at universities in the United Arab Emirates. Specifically, students immigrating to Dubai in order to study at one of its universities must be sponsored as a student by either a relative living there – or more often – the university itself. Someone in the … Read the rest

opulence, it can be easy to forget the acts of those such as Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al
