Ramadan Fasting: Why I am not fasting this Ramadan

Asma AlBedawi




“It is so important that the younger generation realise that there is not a one size fits all, you do not necessarily have to be stereotypically sporty to be good at sports, younger girls can like doing their makeup or playing their guitar and still enjoy being active on the court, pitch or field. You do not have to have the same body, build, skin colour or hobbies as everyone else. Just be you.”
