It's been such a long time since i've been on the ice. I think it's about time I get back on :) its been years since my injury and well...I think it would do me good :) Now, where are my skates?
I came across this awesome interview of Zahra Lari, a 17 year old girl from the gulf who, wait for it...wait for it (well, you've already seen the picture)...is a hijabi figure skater. WOAH! When I saw her picture, I was just amazed. Most people may not think its a big deal, but when you dream of doing what she's doing and then you see her compete in hijab...well its amazing. She competed in the European Cup and finished in the top 15 (if you ask me, that's awesome). She hopes to some day compete in the 2014 winter Olympics. I am so in awe of her. I wish I could have had the opportunity to do something like this. I'm rooting for her and really hope that I get to see her at the Olympics. You make other hijabi girls dreams come true Zahra :) Way to go!
