Sumaya – We are Northeastern



What is something you’d like to change about yourself?

I wouldn’t necessarily want to completely change myself, as self-acceptance is an important part of life. But I try to improve my bad habits. Mostly, I want to stop letting the fear of failure keep me from doing great things. How? For me, it’s spending some time every day doing an action towards a goal. Whether it’s adding to an outline of a book, sketching a future painting, or researching about how to open an Etsy shop. At the end of every day, I want to be able to point out one thing that I did that will take me one step closer to achieving what I want to achieve.

What could you never give up?

Sugar. I’ve tried and tried.

What is the best advice you’ve been given or have given?

Every trial ends. Then you’re better for it.
