Introducing Maysara, 16, a high school student based in Turkey!
1. What inspires you the most?
People such as Edward Said and all the brilliant individuals who were a child of diaspora. It gives me motivation to go through adventures and appreciate being born in an ancient land - Egypt - and have an authentic Uyghur culture that makes me look forward to learning about how to be a better version of myself.
2. What is the most important lesson you have learnt recently?
Evaluating all kinds of hard situations as a life experience. It's important in building our character as teenagers who are living abroad and facing many hardships, not to think about surviving and getting through the case only but rather extracting the fruits of the difficulties we went through.
3. What two subjects do you love talking about?
Philosophical topics that make me think for days, and not taking for granted whatever we're taught in school or told by elders. Thinking outside of the box has always been my point of interest. Also talking about politics and the problems we're facing sarcastically by adding some humour.
