Home is my room

Updated: Nov 17, 2018

My gender. As a woman in saudi I feel like I’m always the “odd one out” whether it’s on the street or at work because everywhere is dominated by men being comfortable with themselves and women hiding. So I’m always hyper aware that I’m a woman.

My home is my room not my actual home. My room is mine and safe and private and has things I love that I chose and I can create my own rules inside it whether it’s eating there or playing music or being naked. When I’m in the rest of my house I have to make compromises but my room always has the vibes that match my mood.
