I’m improving, but still got a long way to go :) 5 months ago
How I did it: I visited Canada's Paramount Wonderland and rode the Behemoth. The line was longgggg which made me more nervous, but I was determined to do it and I finally did. Once the seat was locked in I was like ''Oh man. It's too late. No turning back now''. The first drop was the most nerve wrecking. It kept going up and up and up and up, then downnnn... yeah, I pretty much closed my eyes the whole time.
Fortunately, that same week I went again, but with my cousins this time. I decided to give it another chance. My young cousin was sitting besides me. I couldn't help closing my eyes again, but then suddenly I heard my cousin yelling "Woooh this is awesome whooo this is sooo cool whooo" (lol). I became tempted to open my eyes. And you know what?! It turned out to be amazing . It was SO much fun and exhilarating. I even ended up putting my hands up!!!
I rode it 10 times that season. To make the 10th time official, I rode the front seat :)
“Assa-lamu-alaikum” is the most common greeting in Somalia, since majority are Muslims. It means “Peace be upon you” (origin: Arabic). 8 months ago

I’ve always been a shy person who kept to herself. Last year I tried something new; when ever someone approached me, I instantly smiled! Even if I spoke a little or paused because I didn’t know what to say next, I still kept a geniune smile on my face. And as crazy and simple as it sounds, a smile was all I needed to break the ice and to start conversing one-on-one without feeling insecure or intimidated. Public speaking on the other hand, I’ve yet to figure out! 8 months ago
