Who I am ?...
I am 34 years old, I’m a dentist, & I am a mother for three children .I got married when I was 19 years old in 1990 , I was in my first year in collage of Dentistry, my husband is mechanical engineer he is my cousin . Before my marriage, I lived in Baghdad with my parents and younger sister. I had wonderful childhood & lovely family.
Since marriage, I live in Mosul, which is a city I don’t like. I have very nice apartment.
I had my first child in 1992; I was only 21 years old. That was hard to be a wife; a mother & dental student .Since then my child brought the jolliness to my live. I worked hard to be graduated in1995.
My daughter was 3 years old when she walked with me in my graduation solemnization. That was the greatest day in my whole live.
I worked for 2 years, my salary was 2800 ID (about 1 $) a month!! I used to take my girl to a shop at my salary day to buy her a couple of candies, it cost me all the salary!!
After two years of work in Mosul( which I consider it as training) , I had to serve in the countryside.
I was send to Nasriea, which is about 750 kilometers from Mosul.
With the same salary & I should pay for discursiveness (which is the worst) & for habitation, leaving my baby that was the impossible.
I left my work & stayed at home.
I gave birth to my second daughter at 1998. She is delightful.
At 2003 ,immediately after the war calm down, I returned back to work , I requested from the health minister to allow me to work near Mosul ,& I got the agreement .My salary was 120 $ a month! know I get 216000 ID (about 146$)a month!
In 2004, I gave birth to my last child. He is gorgeous.
My great love to my kids, make me worry a lot about their future. I want them to have excellent childhood, &I want to guarantee a good future by offering them good education.
That could be the intention of every loving parent but believe me in my case it is not easy.
