Lama Younis, Writer

My name is Lama Younis and I was born on the 3rd of June, 2004 in Amman, Jordan. I moved to Johns Creek, Georgia at the wise and ripe age of seven with my mother, father, older brother, and younger sister. Since then, my life has been quite the rollercoaster. At first, of course, I missed my family and the overall lifestyle in Jordan. I missed having people who had grown up the same way as me. However, as I adjusted, life became ten times better. I made friends, moved again, lost friends, made more friends, finished middle school, and got little to no sleep. While all that was quite chaotic, it was all worth it because now I am a 10th grade journalist writing for the local newspaper, which has been my dream since I was five. 

I see myself as a kind individual, one who takes others’ feelings into great consideration. At the same time, I strive to stand up for myself, and not allow myself to suffer injustice, wise advice given to me by parents. Since I moved to Georgia, my desire to be a crime scene investigator has grown larger with the increase of terror and tragedy in the world. In recent years, I have been struggling  to discover my purpose in life, and I have finally hit the jackpot. At the end of the day, I just want to make a positive difference in the world. I want to leave a legacy, or as said by Maya Angelou, I want to make ,“a mark on the world that can’t be erased.”
