Hello. I guess this is the part where I tell you about my life, and who I am.
My name is Mirna, duh it’s the tittle of my blog. Okay but seriously I was Born in Amman, Jordan on August 22, 1999. My original name was “Noor” (light, bright) in Arabic. After I was born my family shortly moved to Benin, we lived there for a couple of years but, we would go back to Jordan every time my mom was going to give birth. I don’t really remember much of it but, my mom is always reminiscing on the good days of Benin.
My family moved back to Jordan when I was about 4. We lived there for a couple of years then moved to America for specifically South Carolina when I was 7. After moving to the states my parents shortly got divorced. I wish I could say that it was a simple divorce but it was the exact opposite. The divorce was rough, messy, and just ugly. My mom didn’t want to stay in that environment anymore so after three and a half years living in South Carolina we moved to Florida. It was a hard transition but, it was the best decision that my mom has made.
Life was great in Tampa, actually amazing. There was some hard days, but we got through them. My mom eventually opened a middle eastern restaurant on Bruce B Downs called “Al Sham Palace” its been opened for three years and it’s doing great.
That is the story of my life and where I am at the moment.
Talk to you soon. xxx.
