About Fowzia Gamiet
I am a South African-born female of Arab decent. Human behaviour is an area that interests me and over the years I have become a natural at behaviour prediction. My interest has naturally pulled me to study a career path that would further that passion i.e. Organisational Psychology. As an apt Confucius quote goes: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
I follow the religion of Islam. All my actions are aimed at remembering that before anything else (my career, my interests, my wants…), I am a Muslim. Being a Muslim in a Western culture, brings forth its own challenges however, I maintain a high level of dignity and integrity in my actions, behaviour and a modest dress-code. Or at least, I try.
Knowledge-acquisition fuels my motivation for life. The more I learn the more I want to know!
I also have business interests which I have translated into an online store. I have also joined forces with entrepreneurial communities to educate each other about growing a businesses.
I believe in sharing your knowledge as in doing so, your own knowledge grows. I am happy to help if you are looking to start your own business or if you need assistance with starting your own blog.
About my blog
My blog is a tool to articulate my thoughts, document interesting experiences and share ideas. Being a woman, I naturally write from a woman’s perspective. Additionally, I do possess mild feministic views and my writing will display a tendency towards inspiring and encouraging especially women. With that said, make no mistake, I am not a misandrist.
I am a woman with realistic views on the world and through my blog I aim to question what is and what should be. It is an honest view of who I am. If your feelings are hurt by my posts then keep in mind, that it’s nothing personal. Let’s talk aboudeeeet.
I also do post requests and topic suggestions. Feel free to comment on any of my posts. I love intelligent discussion- it keeps my brain juices flowing. While I do not expect everyone to always agree with my views,I am entitled to my opinion. With that said, please remember to have respect when commenting.
My message to women
Education! Education! Education! I cannot stress this point enough! Yes, I know this is boring but it HAS to be said. Get a qualification in something that interests you. It will give you the edge. Looking good is great but if you promote your body then that is what you will be known as. Nobody takes you seriously if you’re half naked claiming to be intelligent. True beauty lies in what you can contribute to your neighbours’ happiness, not how much skin is revealed. Respect yourself enough to improve your brain rather than cheapen your body. Otherwise, you may as well go work in the local strip joint!
My message to men
This blog is not aimed at women alone. I write pro-women but I am keen to see a man’s view, so I strongly urge you to engage with me…if you dare! 🙂
How to connect with me
I always look forward to hearing from my readers through and engaging with them, however, I would like to keep my personal Facebook profile as just that; private. I only accept friend requests from those who are just that… my personal friends. If you don’t know me personally, kindly refrain from sending me a request, as I will not accept it. I always try my best to respond to all contact so fear not, I am accessible to you on the following platforms:
You have nothing to prove to anyone, so apologise to nobody for being you! 😉
