The Flying Girl – By: Maryam Al Ali

When I was a little baby, I dreamed that I was a flying girl. Everyday, I felt that when I become older, I will be a flying girl.

When I became 10 years old, I went with my father to the swimming pool, climbed the ladder, and jumped as high as I could. I felt like I was flying and everybody was watching me. My dream came true although not exactly as I imagined it.
