Don’t force children to get married

According to Plan UK, 1 in 3 girls in the developing world is married by her 18th birthday. I can no longer be an apologist for my community when it comes to arranged marriage.


Why I am not sorry that I am ambitious

I have only been praised when it has seemed non-threatening. I can only be congratulated if I am a modest mouse who shies away from everything I have achieved, and disowns it, choosing to cower in the shadow and accept that I am just a stupid girl who was lucky that her parents let her do things. I am ambitious, and I am not going to apologise for it.
