Since 2014, I have been lucky enough to have worked with some fantastic people at varying different sites and magazines. Here is a selection of some of my favourite pieces I've written across the years.
Rewriting The Mind - Be A Light
At some point in our lives, many of us will be struck by something or afflicted by a feeling so devastating that it changes everything. We face the thought of our future and every dream we have envisioned for it and suddenly it is as if we have no control. We are blinded by the light of the unknown, seeing only a distorted, anxiety-ridden glimpse into what could be or rather what will never be.
Self Evolution - Thought Catalog
The only difference between change and evolution is our awareness of the significance of our own conscious attention.
I’m not talking about the scientific Darwinian usage where we change by natural selection, I’m talking about something more specific to us, to our marriage between choice and chance.
How To Let Go - Thought Catalog
Most of us aren’t very good at saying goodbye. Although, having said that, most of us rarely have the opportunity, when it comes to fading friendships, failed relationships or distanced relatives, to actually close the door and say goodbye.

Zina Dawood is an architect, interior designer, dreamer and perfectionist. She earned her Architecture Master’s degree from Lund University and is a licensed architect in Sweden.

Healing From Past Hurt - The Mighty
But not everything is pain and when shared, the experience can end positively. I started telling people, and started looking out for positive videos and articles and tried to understand my condition and my life. I gave myself more of a chance, I listened to friends, and though my trust issues and my loneliness and fear of my own agency at nights is still present, I am healing. I am healing enough to tell my story and hope that, in some way, someone may have the belief to heal themselves after hearing this.
