Without pain there is no gain, without suffering we won’t feel for others and without hurt we wouldn’t learn to change.

Every pain I endured, every difficult situation that killed me from the inside made me feel alive today. I never really thought that a person could get stronger by going through pain and difficulties until I’ve been through it over and over. I realised that without pain there is no gain, without suffering we won’t feel for others and without hurt we wouldn’t learn to change. We don’t realise how strong, capable and brave we are until we go through disappointments and learn how to deal with them wisely. Past lessons teaches us how to deal with people and situations in a mature manner. My past lessons taught me that not everything is worth the pain and suffering. I learned the art of letting go peacefully without carrying hate in my heart and without feeling disappointed. I learned that everything is temporary and that not everything is meant to be in my life forever. I learned that happiness is within and that I should always make myself happy. I understood that I needed to stand up for myself and fight on my own. 
After all we all have feelings and we all go through pain but how we deal with situations is what matters the most, we shall never lose ourselves. This life is temporary such as our feelings.

Why I decided to have my own website?

Hello Beautiful people!

I am trying to post recent images and also old images. I used to rely on social media for posting my photographs and I thought the best way to gather my work (That is captured by a professional camera) here on my website. On Instagram I focus on sharing stories and lifestyle so majority of images posted there are iPhone pictures. I decided to create this website to share my work, stories and writings. I am combining old and new images because I guess its still a frozen memory after all and my main aim is to focus on the memory itself and sharing whatever was captured through my lens. Having a website is important and will never go off trend and the best way to show people your work! So I thought it will be great to have all of my work in one place. 

Every image here tells a story, a moment that had a special meaning to me. Every image has a feeling. 

I photograph whatever captures my eyes and I pay attention to small details.

We don’t belong to a certain nation we’re all citizens of this world!

One of the things I am blessed with is having the opportunity to enjoy being around people and knowing the value of embracing other cultures. I grew up being around different people because my parents always had multi cultural friends, I always felt comfortable getting to know people from different backgrounds. But I started appreciating having multicultural friends when I moved to London and also when I started my travel journey because I grew up having 99.9% Qatari friends only. I loved being exposed to new people, getting to understand more about our differences. We all seem different but we all have common things to share. What I learned as well is differences never matter if we try to accept and understand each other. Even being on social media gave me the opportunity to make friends globally and now whenever I travel I always have people everywhere that are willing to meet me. I grew up appreciating whatever is different; I learned that having friends from different cultures is something that shaped my personality and made me learn a lot about this world. I learned the beauty of diversity and how it is great to be around people that you can learn new things from. Having a multi cultural heart is something I am proud of and I always try to fit in everywhere I go even if it’s a matter of time. This world is our home and we all belong to the creator, we don’t belong to a certain nation we’re all citizens of this world!
