Making Of Me!
By: Alisha Mawji
This is a story of a girl who shares her life of interesting events and all the different kinds of people that make her journey wonderful. Something that I'm proud of about myself is that I'm courageous . Even though I become very nervous while speaking in large crowds, I still believe in myself and I do it. In the future, my dreams are to become a doctor and a hockey player. I have been gathering a lot of information about my identity and what makes me who I am today. I hope you enjoy learning about me.
One of the things that really sets me apart from others are my characteristics. I was born with brown skin, brown eyes and black hair. I like my hair short and straight because when I have long hair it's harder to maintain, especially while wearing a hijab. I wear glasses to help me see in the distance. I weigh up to 34.2 Kg and I'm 56 inches tall. My weight is normal however, I'm short. I have good physical stamina because I play hockey which requires a quantity of strength.
Families are like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one. My family consists of people from all different ages, from the age of seven to the age of sixty. In my immediate family, there is my hilarious dad, who always makes me laugh even when I'm very sad and my mom whose an amazing advisor to me. My sister made a big difference in my life, she taught me how to become a kid again. She is always so energetic wanting me to play with her day and night. In my extended family, there is my paternal grandfather and grandmother who are so generous and kind. I have a paternal aunt and uncle, my aunt since the beginning has been my closest, she gives my sister and I so much of her time and love, she also takes us on such fun adventures. As for my uncle, he is very protective and caring. My maternal grandfather has inspired me to be religious, in many ways I'm like my grandfather. I have 3 maternal uncle's by the names of Mahdi Hassan, Mohammed Reza and Fazle Abbas. Uncle Hassan, has inspired me in art and creativity while Uncle Reza, taught me a lot when I'm unsure. He is currently learning and studying Islam, his future goal is to become a religious speaker. Uncle Abbas is not married yet but very soon he will, he is a lot like my dad and he has a good sense of humor. Last but not least, I have my very weird, hyper, crazy and talented best friend who always cheers me up.
The Rule of expectations uses expectations to influence reality and create results. Individuals tend to make decisions based on how others expect them to perform. As a result, people fulfill those expectations whether positive or negative. Expectations have a powerful impact on those we trust and respect, but, interestingly, an even greater impact on perfect strangers. When we know someone expects something from us, we will try to satisfy him or her in order to gain respect and likability. My mom expects me to be successful at things like school grades and sports. I try my best to make her happy because when she is happy it makes me happy too, but sometimes I'm not able to achieve that success. I wished my mom was a bit more understanding about situations like this and not get dissatisfied with me. My dad expects me to choose a good carrier that makes me happy and it doesn't harm people. I'm glad that I have chosen a carrier that I like and my father does too, which is a doctor. Nidah, my little sister, expects me to stop bugging her. For me and most probably other older siblings, troubling the younger one is fun and irresistible. Above everybody else's expectations, I have some expectations for myself which is firstly, to be perfect at everything, even making mistakes. I figured that no matter how much you try to be the best, you will always end up making a mistake every once in awhile. The second expectation that I have is to be organized, I am very skilled at being organized.
