Yousra is the symbol of beauty, elegance, and love in our country. We enjoyed shooting, listening, and dancing with her. She is that kind of person who brings happiness and positive energy anywhere she goes. now, we’ll tell you all about the sit down we had with her! Yousra was very happy with the shooting, with all the different and unique styles snd make up look which made us happier even more! She loved how we turned on some music for her while we took some amazing shots of her and she was instantly in a good, uplifting mood. We were thrilled with excitement with her choice of fashion wear so we asked her does she follow the fashion trends? She replied that she loves wearing what suits her best. She says that seeing a clothing from afar won’t tell you if it actually suits your body type, you have to try it on and see what actually suits your body and wear it proudly! If a clothing is trendy at the moment but doesn’t suit her, then she simply won’t wear it.   We were thrilled with excitement with her choice of fashion wear so we asked her does she follow the fashion trends? She gave us a smile and said that she loves wearing what suits her best.

If a clothing is trendy at the moment but doesn’t suit her, then she simply won’t wear it. We decided to ask about her beauty secret, what’s the secret behind beauty in her perspective? She happily replied by, “My beauty secret is my heart.” And honestly, that was enough for us to draw the widest smile among our faces but we wanted to hear more. “I love the world and I love everyone, I really cannot hate anybody. Hating actually take from you, they don’t give so maybe I could get pissed off from someone but I really cannot just hate anyone.” Our curiosity couldn’t stop us from asking her about what would she advise to Egyptian or Middle Eastern girls? She claims that simplicity is the mother of beauty. The simpler you are, the more your beauty stands out.

Even if you actually know you’re beautiful, you don’t have to always prove it to everyone by standing out, you’re beautiful and you don’t need to prove it to anybody. The real and true beauty is what’s on the inside, your soul. The beauty on the inside is what will let your outer beauty shine so bright, so the number one priority is the beauty on the inside because that’s all that counts anyways!

She replied that if she has work, she simply gets up in the morning and gets to work and goes back home in the evening but if she doesn’t have work, she likes organizing the house, meeting her friends, family, her mother and doing many activities. She loves being around the people she loves the most and that’s all that matters after all! However, if she’s invited to an event or something special, she exerts an effort in her known outstanding and unique style and make up. Buzzing with excitement, we decided to ask about this year’s past Ramadan series “Ladina Aqual Okhra” starring Yousra,

and how the fans reacted after knowing the series was only aired online, on Saudi screens only. She replied with confidence and happiness claiming that the fans were extremely happy and the traffic on the series was magnificent, she was pleased to hear people’s opinion on the series and their constant support on how much they liked it even though it was only aired on Saudi Arabian screens and online. She’s in love with the fans’ consistency on even though the series was only aired online, they didn’t have a doubt to watch it.

We asked Yousra if airing the Ramadan series online or on Saudi Arabian screens would effect the traffic or make less people watch the series. Giving us a very heartwarming smile, she replied saying “Despite this happening a few times before, it wasn’t really a problem because if you’re a huge fan of someone, you like knowing everything about them and watching everything they do even in the toughest moments. Although,

I’d always love my work getting aired in my own country, Egypt. However, despite this, I’m so blessed and cheerful that the fans made their researches and looked around to watch this series online or on Saudi Arabian screens. I also loved how the fans think out loud about what will happen to the main character and saying their thoughts to everyone else, it made me very delighted.”   And that’s all for today and we’d like to thank the marvelous actress, Yousra for this amazing interview and for inspiring us of course!

Behind closed doors

Published

on

By

Behind every closed door is a story, some of its chapters are happy and others are sad. The heroes are familiar people, might be a friend or an acquaintance. Most of the times, those stories are left untold, because who would speak about family issues?

Within those closed doors are another closed one, where a person suffers silently from these issues. But when morning comes, that person wakes up, opens the closed door and walks out of it, like nothing is wrong.

Those are the strongest people, who manage to leave their troubles behind the closed doors. The kind who can still listen to your problems without disparaging them, they listen even when they have got troubles on their own. They care and they never belittle anyone’s ache because they know quite well what it feels like to suffer in silence.

Behind closed doors are secrets that people exert so much effort to keep them tucked inside, to keep those aches and sufferings hidden away from people.

This is why, always be gentle with people; because you will never know their stories, their sorrows, their pain. And when someone opens the door to you and allows you in, help them clear the mess, replace the aches with comfort and help create a safer haven for them. Because trust me when I tell you that it’s never easy for someone to share the things that happen behind closed doors, it’s never easy for strong people to admit that they need help after living independently for years.

I know that when they open up, they’ll seem so sad to you, so broken and damaged. But they weren’t always like this. They had light in them that is now dimmed with all the issues they face, and all they need is someone who understands, to be there for them, to help bring out the light.

So be patient with the broken, don’t give up on them; because they have only come this way after giving out pieces of themselves to all those in need for comfort, a word of advice, or even a shoulder to lean on.

Anti-bullying starts from home

Published

on

By

Recently, a video of a girl being made to walk to school in a freezing temperature, has provoked a debate on parenting. The walk was a part of her punishment for bullying a kid on the bus, the video was filmed by her father who followed her in his car.

Ten-year old Kristen was reported for bullying a kid on the school bus for the second time and thus got denied from riding the bus, when she asked her father to give her a ride to school, that was when he decided that enough is enough. And decided to punish her by making her walk 5 miles to school, and of course for security measures, he drove along with her and filmed her walk.

Matt, the father, while filming his daughter, explained the incident then added: “A lot of children today feel that the things their parents do for them is a right and not a privilege, such as parents taking their children to school in the morning or even bus rides to school.”

The video of course then created an ethical dilemma, and with a 15 million times view, the comments were more than 62 thousands! some of which praised his act and others believed that this is fighting bullying by bullying.

Now you might also not agree with his method, but let’s take the experience to Egypt and think thoroughly. Many parents hate to believe that their kids are wrong, when a parent is asked to come to school, they are quick to defend their children and justifying their actions. Others are quick to take action and punish their kids without hearing them out, which creates a gap between them and their children.

The father’s method might not appeal to all parents, but at least an action was taken and a lesson was learned, the kid would have never really learned the consequences of her actions if she was simply been given another ride for school.

We blame children for bullying and we really never understood why, what triggered such a behavior?

Teach your children to love and accept everyone, that what they have got better than others in life is a privilege and not a right, something they should feel grateful for. Teach them that it’s okay to say sorry, that it has nothing to do with their ego.

Support and tough love start from home, valued lesson on how to love and accept people start from home. The values they acquire in their early years stick with them for a lifetime, I have grown friends who don’t apologize because saying sorry hurts their ego. I have friends who look poorly at others because they weren’t given the same opportunities in life.

And I have friends who were raised to earn the privileges given to them, who were raised on certain values and treat people equally. Some do it unconsciously because they attained these values from simply watching their parents do it, and those people are the best, so raise more of them.

Am I Perfect? Are You Perfect?

Published

perfection

What is it to be perfect? What is perfection? How can a word so common amongst the masses of people be also understood by some to be referring to that which does not exist?

Of course perfection exists. My mom is perfect. My dad too. And other things are perfect as well, like my favorite meal. But wait, how can my parents be perfect at the same time as when I, at times, see other parents and I would wish my parents were like them? Well, my favorite meal is that which my mom makes, and is definitely perfect–at least when my mom makes it. Yet what if I find that my best friend’s mom makes it better? Or even more radically, what if I find out that sushi tastes a thousand times better than that which I consider perfect, and is my favorite meal? Then in that case, my perfect meal would no longer be perfect; I would have discovered that which is more perfect. And so too my parents: no matter how many particular characteristics I would want my parents to have, each time they acquired one, I’d still find myself thinking that other parents have at least one more characteristic that makes them more perfect.

This notion that the measurement of perfection is constantly changing, I find specifically interesting. Even if we reach that level which we had labeled as being perfect, we reach it and do not end up finding perfection. Let us consider an example. Suppose that my girlfriend asks me about my opinion with regards to her body. I respond by saying “if you lose two pounds, you will be perfect.” Now, suppose that my girlfriend lost those two pounds and some time later approaches me with the same question, but this time I reply saying that her body is amazing, but she needs to work on her butt. So, what has happened here?

I claim that we create the state of what we call “perfection” when we recognize that something could improve, or could change to the “better.” In other words, when I tell my girlfriend that losing two pounds would lead her to having the perfect body, I thereby create a mirage of perfection. An illusory state of affairs that is never really attained. Because once my girlfriend has dropped those two pounds, I would want her to work on her butt, for that would lead her to be more perfect.

So what can we do? How can we perceive this notion of perfection? I suggest that we need to refine our notion of what perfection is. The obvious issue here is the mirage. We would have to create a notion of perfection that cannot be altered by a change in state of affairs. So to use my previous example, my girlfriend is good enough the way she is now–her weight is perfect. Dropping two pounds would not make her perfect; dropping two pounds would rather place me in a position where I start to look for other things that would make her perfect. But there remains to know the difference between that which is perfect, and that which is good enough. I don’t know whether or not such a difference exists, but I do know that something that is not sustainable cannot be perfect.
