Welcome to ESCAPE

Updated: Apr 22, 2023

Hey, My name is Farida Reguig, I started expressing my feelings in writing at the age of 12 and decided to share them in a blog at the age of 33, waited for so long but here I am so, Welcome to Escape.

On January the 10th ,1989, I was born in a small village in the North East side of Algeria and that made me a Muslim, African, Arab woman ready to conquer the world.

The first years of my life had a lot of learning, I always knew that there is something different for me and I need to fight in order to get it, living the dark decade of the Algerian history as a child gave me a bitter taste that I could only feel later in life so it was more of an after taste. At the age of 12, I felt that the world has to change and I needed to play a role in that change, I wrote about poverty, politics and even bigger topics that made me feel like a hero, ready to make the world a better place. I participated in local writing contexts, had my name mentioned in newspapers and then realized that nothing is really happening, there were days when I felt like a burden and didn't have anyone around to talk to, I was filled with anxiety and often had nowhere to turn, Regardless of being the bright kid, I experienced sadness and loneliness and decided to stop writing as I didn't see an impact of my words in my environment. I felt misunderstood at most of the time but life kept going.

I always wanted to achieve more and my family and teachers encouraged me to keep going so, I graduated, got an internship at one of the biggest corporates in the world and that's how I decided to relocate to South Korea, the 21 years old Farida moved all by herself to this new world called Seoul, met new people and had to go through a lot of good and bad experiences and after few years I decided to move to Bahrain then to Dubai where I live now and write without having the fear of rejection. There were times in the past when I felt that my life was out of my control and I had no idea how to make it better, I had to go through life trying to understand why I was so different, in a labyrinth made of my own thoughts and emotions I felt lost for so long until I decided to find the way out through the same confusing paths, I stoped, took a deep breath and assessed every situation, I am taking each feeling as a landmark, seeking guidance in the pain and that's how the idea of ESCAPE came to the light.

I know that I can draw a map using my feelings as a pen and this blog as a paper. if I ever fail to get out using my own map, at least this blog will be my voice yelling and asking for help.

Once more, thank you for joining me in this journey of escaping the maze of pain and self doubt through expressing deep feelings and exercising self love.
