Introduction I am a Sudanese journalist blogging for a better Sudan. When I started this blog in December 2006, I just wanted to write about Sudan and share my perspective. Then, I found out that I had an opinion and I continued blogging. I am a freelance journalist with an interest in human rights, development, politics and gender issues. I read, I write, I drink tea. ***I love the writings of Mai Ghossoub, Nawal Al-Saadawi and Eve Ensler. I want to write profiles like Gamal Nkrumah and non-fiction like Adam Hochschild
