Scientist, Writer, Human Rights defender and a Mum
My name is Sali and welcome to my blog. I have created this website because I have a goal and I’d love to reach out, inspire and help millions people.
Thank you very much for being here and here is a brief introduction about myself and my journey.
I am the youngest of four children. When I was a child, I had a wonderful childhood, my parents cared so much for me and for my siblings. However, it wasn’t all perfect, I had an abusive brother which made me suffer emotionally and sadly, I couldn’t do much about it. My father was Major in the army, he used to travel a lot and I hated the fact that I couldn’t see my father for long periods of time.
I had a strict traditional family, I was brought up in a certain way for example, to respect and follow family rules and traditions.
I was fortunate enough to have my parents care so much about our education. I had a very good education. I also was a very active child and my parents decided to put me in sports and music where I could use my energy and talent so I played various of sports such as basketball, Karate, wrestling with my dad, music and singing.
At the age of 15, my eldest brother passed away within two weeks of his illness. I remember how painful it was, seeing my brother suffer and unable to speak or move. I remember seeing my brother in so much pain and agony. My brother death affected me heavily and I was suffering from inside. I loved my brother so much and he was the kindest person that I’ve ever known as well as he was like a father to me so losing him left a big hole in my heart and made me lose faith in God and in everything around me.
From that moment, I started questioning everything around me and the presence of God.
Then, at the age of 18 I’ve got married. After 7 years of marriage we separated. My husband was abusive, and I was so scared to speak to anyone. I felt isolated then I isolated myself from the whole world, I became very closed person with lots of mixed emotions and shame. I completely lost myself and I felt a shamed of myself for marrying someone who is not worthy of my love. I found it very difficult to break away and found it difficult to get out from such an abusive relationship. Many times, I thought that I will not survive alone and it would be impossible to live without him. However thankfully, I was free from such relationship even though I was terrified but now I am so grateful it happened otherwise I would have not become the woman who I am today.
After the separation, I had No Job, No confidence, I hated myself, hated my life, there was no one that I could rely on. I was left to carry all the responsibilities. I was hugely distressed, I had very low self-esteem and depressed. I didn’t know what to do! I was asking myself many questions such as, “should I get back to my husband and stay in the abusive relationship or lose my children”? Thankfully, I found a very good solicitor who helped me during that difficult time.
Few months later, I lost my father on boxing day and I felt completely lost, broken to pieces, angry and guilty for not being with him and I wished I was with my dad when he died.
It took a lot of courage and power but I successfully built my confidence, I started going out and speaking to people, volunteering in different areas in my local community and I felt so happy that I am helping people and I am making a difference in my community.
At the beginning of my career, I worked in retail where I got promoted very quickly as a manager, also I was very blessed to have an amazing boss who looked after me and my colleagues. Then, I started working as science technician, as well as volunteering in the school which I am so passionate about, love so much and I feel that I am making a difference.
My goal now is to inspire many people and help them to achieve their goals and find the spark. I believe that there is nothing greater than making an impact on people’s life and make them realize that the power is within them and there is No one can take away that power.
Going through my adversities made think about my life and what I want to achieve, I asked myself many questions, such as:
- Why bad things happen to me? Was it my fault? What do I need to do? Where is God?
- What am I and what is my purpose on this universe? How am I connected to God and the universe?
- If I die today will I be remembered? Did I accomplish anything in my life?
- How to live happy, fulfilled, and a successful life? What is the law of attraction?
For anyone who is struggling right now please don’t give up, don’t Ever Give Up. I struggled, lost my brother, married to an abusive man, nearly lost my children, lost my father, I was broke, discriminated against, and now I’m a very strong, confident, independent woman, scientist, writer, Human Rights defender and a mum of two wonderful happy children.
I want every person to realize that there is nothing that is impossible and you could be whatever you want to be if you are willing to stand up for yourself and accept that you are God creation and God is within you and Trust and believe in yourself. Always remember that there is always a way to greatness and happiness. We are all born for a reason and our job is to try to search for our purpose and work towards it.
I am grateful for you being here. I am grateful for everyone’s support and help during my journey.
