Adventures of a Hijabi Librarian

Who am I ?

I am so many things and not enough.

I am a Muslim.
An American.
An Egyptian.
A mix of two worlds.

I am a daughter.
I am a sister.
A best friend.
A significant other.
A keeper of secrets.

I am a millennial.
I am a librarian.
I am my past.
Living in the present.
I am who I've yet to become.

I am a book lover.
I am a reader.
I am a poetry enthusiast.
A writer.
A photographer.
Life is a mystery.

I am a foodie.
As long as its good.

I am a show watcher.
A movie watcher.
An entertainment lover.
A critic.

I am a runner.
I am a swimmer.
I am a yogi.
A pilates practitioner.
A sleeper.
Above all, lazy.

I am a talker.
A laugher.
A listener.
But at times,
I am Silence. 

I am a traveler.
I am a trier.
I am steps taken.
And steps planned.
One foot at the ready.


  1. Beautiful poem.. I feel identified with your words... I am a Mexican, but my roots are in Lebanon. Like my grandfather I am an immigrant in another country. I am pursuing my School Library Science degree. Like you.... I am full of contradictions, but I am me. I will be reading your posts.

    1. Thanks you for your kind words! Its a good feeling to be able to relate to others in life. We are all so different yet the same. I look to reading your posts as well!
