” Even more important is your spirit, which is the light within that temple. A beautiful temple may attract others, but it is the light that will touch hearts.” 🙂

My name is Marihame Michel Riad Hanna
and I am simple female, Christian, 27 years old, Egyptian
for me the first thing that affect how I see myself is my country Egypt, my culture and my tradition.

but now after this Journey , I can see more than that , I am the women in the 28 🙂 and I am a leader of my life and I am full of talent and unique in my potential and very clear in my vision and my mission and I believe in my vision and it is more that growth or development to my society but it is a global vision of networking and sharing and opening like a flower and according to Bishop Thomas Coptic Orthodox Bishop:” When I see a person being transformed like a blooming flower it makes my heart rejoice.”

I see the possibilities and I feel the change in my body so it is not only a growth in mind but also in the soul, I like what I have shared now with the indigenous group ” Faith” your faith in yourself and the others, in your country, the Global and in the cosmos.

And at the end I will not be me alone it will be all of us together and then the philosophy will spread and it will be many with different colors with different skills and talents and this is the solidarity that I saw it and touch in Anafora and it grow in Coady. It is a life philosophy. it has helped me to see that it is not a cultural or tradition can control in me but it is a value that I believe in it and I adopt others and add into my life through experience and learning and that I am effective and a module so through I can teach others through my action and doing and” walk the talk “

Anafora is a Coptic word {ΑΝΑΦΟΡΑ} means Offering, Anafora retreat Center NGO Vision is Lifting up . it is more than a Vision it is a Philosophy, a life style, it is not only for me an NGO or a Place that I belong to no it is my Home. Anafora has tough me a lot about Offering, I have been lifted up By Anafora in many ways and not only on the individual level but also on the professional and the academic level.

Anafora is a creative environment where it has lighted my path and empowers me to discover myself and to know the power within me and the power to make a difference.

Something has helped me to reflect and to plan and develop my goals:

+ what should I keep on doing?

+ What should I do more?

+ What should I do less?

+ What should I do differently? and how?

And I have been inspired by indigenous women program to get these questions. Another thing also I start to pay attention t it how is my Grand- Mother had raised my Mother and My mother for me and so how this cultural and a lot of values it is as heritage by generations. But the difference is to have the freedom to form everything or to use this for your good and for your future and to be like a bird that he is flying up but in another hand you know very well your responsibilities and your rights.

And I choose Dove Pictures because it symbols of Peace and so Women has the nature of peace and the Dove always fly in Group so it is a freedom that will inspire others and been a deviance in the communities and in  families.

Most of us has a song that hear it when time is a bit stress or when do you feel that you need to reflect, For me my song is

Miracles Happen from Princess Diaries, I love this song, it gives the power to see myself achieve a lot of things and this mindset help me a lot to visual this things happen 🙂

I like this Quotes: Miracles do not come with bright lights and fancy stages. Those belong in a magic show. If you want a miracle, you can see it everywhere – in dew drops, in waves, and of course in yourself.

and another 2 that really affect me in my stay in Zambia during March and April 2012bI read it in a book called: A Thousand Paths to Long Life by David Baird

  • If an Equal success, then the formula is A= X+Y+Z where X is Work, Y is play and Z are keep your mouth Shut.    Albert Einstein
  • When one door closes another door opens; but we sp often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the ones which open for us. Alexander Grahan Bell.
I am happy to be me, I may not be perfect, but I am honest, loving and Happy.
I don’t try to be what I am not and I don’t try to impress anyone.
I am ME 🙂

May 21 of may 2012 after this journey of discovering. I was searching to watch a movie and I like Mulan movie, but it made me think about my reflection and how I and other women see ourselves when something wrong happen or when we push ourselves because of this society barrier that they have put it on us as women. Rather Mulan had fight all of us and successes over all of this.
