😌 What's the first word that comes to mind?
Location: Katara Beach Club @katarabeachclub
The thing about the obligatory actions in Islam, is that they are ultimately to our benefit. We are ordered by God to perform an action, because He knows it's the best thing for us. We sometimes fight it, but eventually realise that the way of life prescribed to us by our Creator, is the best way to spend our limited time on this pale, blue spot.
Would gladly do this every weekend. Alhamdulillah.
Face of Qatar #10
Name: Eylin Pérez.
Where are you from? I’m originally from #Lima
How long have you been in Qatar? I’ve been in Qatar since February 2016, so it’s been already 2 years.
Why did you move to Qatar? I had a little crush on Qatar since the first time I had a layover in Doha. I found that the country was really safe, organized and interesting. Once I moved, I fell in love even more with its culture and traditions, which are really unique.
What are you passionate about? My passion is doing yoga. I’m a yoga instructor and I can say that my life changed since I started my practice. The best part of working on your passion is that you’ll enjoy every single day, and that’s how life becomes happier.
What would you say is the biggest life lesson you have learnt since moving to Qatar? Moving to Qatar helped me to build my character and be strong in my convictions. It taught me to believe in myself and be careful with who I trust. It taught me to trust in my journey, be selective with who I keep in my life, and the most important thing: aim for only the best in any area of my life.
Why do you want to be a part of this project? I was really excited to be part of the project because it’s a beautiful reminder of how diverse we are as humans. Each person is a complete different world, with their own traditions, beliefs, and stories. That’s why it's so enriching to learn, blend and share our cultural baggage with others, because it broadens the horizons of our mind, as well as make us realise how big the planet where we live is.
This...this is what happens when the camera is pointed at the photographer for a change.
