Randa’s favourite pastime is playing tennis or running in the streets (even in the winter!). She told me running is the best stress reliever when her Kinesiology workload is heavy. Randa is 20 years old and has an air of confidence about her which is so refreshing, her own favourite quality is “that I believe in myself, I believe I can make a change one day, I believe I can be a doctor and follow my dreams, even if so many people try to make me not to.” Randa moved from Egypt 5 years ago, and goes back often, her favourite place is on the beach in Sinai, Egypt, and she loves hanging out with her high school best friends from Egypt who make her laugh so much it hurts. When I asked her what she thinks the biggest stereotype of muslim women are she responded, “That she is severely oppressed, which is the biggest joke too. Every time I hear this I laugh, I laugh at the ignorance. I don't even take the time to defend them, because if I told them how awesome we are, they would never believe it anyways, but it's enough that WE believe in ourselves, we don't need anybody telling us what we are and what we are not.”
