“Ever since I was a child, I had the desire to write. I was an active kid and I always wanted to read and write. Unfortunately, at the time no one supported me. Once I was retired, my dear sister and close friend (Maryam Qazi) who has passed away invited me to dinner one day. We started to talk about reading and writing literature. She told me that I was a sensitive person, and because I don’t teach anymore that I should start writing what I feel. Maryam was my biggest supporter; she brightened my heart. I started to write poems for children at the age of forty seven. Same as any other woman in my community, I have seen a lot of downfalls, and that is why I haven’t been able to turn my writings into a book. However, some of my writings have been published in some of the magazines from east and south of Kurdistan.”
