Hello folks, I’m Marian Kamal, a recovering perfectionist from Alexandria, Egypt. The “recovering” part might sound a bit hopeful to all you perfectionists out there, but where would we be without foolish hope? Why foolish you ask; simply because in my case it’s defying fate: “Kamal” is Arabic for “perfection.” I rest my case!
It’s my first time to blog, and I’m very happy to do it. When I was asked to join the team, the first thing that came to my mind is “finally, a way to inflect my wisdom upon the world, muwhahaha!” (in case you haven’t seen any Disney films, that was an evil laugh).
For those of you wondering what is it that I do exactly; I’m a translator and interpreter. For those of you who don’t, just go back and don’t read that last line
I have just turned 30, and that’s the last we speak of my age!
I promise to be honest and open. I promise to post often and to keep swearing to a minimum! And I will try to do the same with exclamation marks; I do tend to over do it a bit!!
