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.

I hereby publicly denounce jihadis, extremists, radicals, and scapegoats

I shouldn’t have to feel like my voicing anything but a condemnation of ISIS means I’m a prime target for radicalisation. I am more than just a Muslim who condemns ISIS.
