S’mores Cupcakes

Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullah! 😀 Today was a wonderful day, alhamdulillah! It was also my first day volunteering at G. Elementary School. The experience was definitely an interesting one, that’s for sure!  I went to the school in the morning and as I was dropping my sister off in her classroom, we met a lady in the hallway. […]

Cupcakes Galore

Assalamualaikum, So I’ve decided I will apply to A2, and then see if I actually should go there later. It feels like Senior year, applying again.

Sara and I were  talking texting back and forth about this, and then I just got thinking…the first ten years of my […]

The Glass Ceiling

Assalamualaikum, I don’t quite remember who I was talking about this to (or maybe I was just having an internal conversation with myself :D), but when one really thinks about it, we can never really reach the pinnacle in our worship to Allah (swa). We can never reach the ‘glass ceiling’ in Islam. We’ll never […]
