What Do You Want The World to Know about Arab Culture? - Heba JalladWritten by Muslims of Ottawa
Muslim Link is continuing its series Muslims of Ottawa. At the Arabian Canadian Bazaar, we asked Arab Muslims from Ottawa the question: What Do You Want The World to Know about Arab Culture?. Here is Heba Jallad's response.
"A lot of people ask me if I got to change my nationality what would it be? I say I want to be Palestinian and Arab! Even though I haven't been to my country as much as I wanted to but it is beautiful. I've been there once. Arabs there are very generous and sweet. They have good hearts and right intentions. I wish everyone could be like that. People should learn about our culture, our traditions. We are actually really fun and open-minded. We like everyone, no matter where the person is from, what age, what colour, what culture."
