Words of Encouragement from Sairan Aqrawi

You might plant your seeds in Asia, but you might end up harvesting them in Canada! The seeds are already on the ground, and we all live in the same globe. Move from where you live. There is excitement waiting for you far away”

Work hard on your American dream… there are many hidden diamonds in muddy ways.”

The minute you give yourself permission to change, the next minute, opportunities will knock at your door!”

Travel away… settle away… your best stories reside away… everything that’s new will take your mind away.”

Don’t leave this world without making an impact, no matter where you were born!”

First be proud of your own reflection in the mirror before seeking acceptance from others.”
