For years ,I was a very active journalist in Morocco.Then I met Farhad . We married some months after, and I moved to his (our) place in USA.Then came our babies so my husband and I decided it was better for our small family to have me at home taking care of our two precious and witnessing their daily “magical” development.I decided then to switch from a full time “news-seeker”;) to a freelance journalist..But it wasn't enough for me: So many things going on,and rare are the channels willing to talk about it.I decided to start blogging,and I really feel much better since I joined GVO;)
