Getting to know Hala
I am a Lebanese author who, since 2007, has been residing in Qatar with my family. Alongside being a preschool teacher, I proudly hold a Master's degree in "Educational Leadership." The inception of Angie's series marked my maiden voyage into the realm of writing. This endeavor serves as a tribute to the memory of Angie, and writing emerged as a profound coping mechanism in the face of her loss. In 2015, Angela, my 18-year-old niece, departed our world, leaving behind a tapestry of experiences. Her ability to articulate thoughts was truly remarkable and inspirational. Kind-hearted, affectionate, and imbued with courage, Angie radiated her qualities to those around her. Notably, she possessed the skill to advocate for both herself and others.
In essence, love emerges as an unconquerable force. While my books are rooted in actual personas, the narratives and events they contain are woven from the threads of imagination. I hold the conviction that literature wields the power to shape the character of young minds, offering them invaluable lessons during their formative years. Moreover, the crucible of my own grief has revealed the transformative nature of pain. This understanding has illuminated the fact that growth often springs from life's most poignant moments. I aspire for the emerging generation to embrace the pain of others, transcending isolation and constraint.
"Trust the power of your heart and awareness to wake up through any circumstances." — The Dalai Lama. Speaking both as a mother and an educator, I advocate for our children to bask in love, to be heard, and to find solace in their unadulterated selves. This fosters resilience from an early age. The journey of spiritual evolution, encompassing self-awareness, self-acceptance, coping strategies, and self-soothing techniques, does not shield us from life's trials. Losses will be endured, careers may falter, adversities will test us, relationships may fracture, and traumas may scar — yet life persists. Ultimately, the path of spiritual evolution provides us the canvas to observe our internal responses to challenges, enveloped in benevolence rather than judgment.
My journey as a life coach has been a remarkable one, driven by an unshakable passion for helping individuals rediscover their true selves. What began as a personal mission to aid friends and family in their life challenges soon transformed into a calling. Through extensive training and self-discovery, I honed the skills necessary to guide others on their paths to self-realization. Witnessing the transformative power of coaching and the profound impact it has on individuals' lives has been nothing short of inspiring. It's a privilege to be a catalyst for positive change, and I'm committed to continuing this journey, empowering others to unlock their full potential and find the fulfillment they deserve.
