Hey! Welcome to my digital portfolio. My name is Maryam Abbas and I am 13 years old (Oldest daughter of Nahid and Qamar Abbas). My parents have been the biggest motivation for me in my life, which is why I am the person that I am today. I go to Qatar Academy and I am a honor student there. I was born on September 29th, 1994, and I was born in Maine. I have lived in Maryland for most of my life. When I was 5 years old we moved to Abu Dhabi, and then after three years we moved back to Maryland. After 4 years (2007), I moved here, Qatar, and I dont know how long I will be living here, because at the end I will end up again in Maryland, since all of my relatives and family lives there! Over here I got an oppurtunity to meet many people from different cultures which was a great experience. Apart from family, my friends have made a great impact on my life as well. My best friends are all from different countries. I love hanging out with my friends, and they are always there for me when I need them. Some of my closest friends here are:
Setareh: This girl is just amazing! She is one of my best friends in Qatar, and I have an amazing time with her. It is great talking to her, and she is always there to help you out. She is very trendy, and it is always fun going out shopping with her to malls!
Mahnoor: Mahnoor is the first person I met when I moved to Qatar. It is great knowing her because she has the same heritage as I do, and most importantly she lives right down the street! Whenever I am feeling a bit down or need someone to talk to she is always there for me and always cheers me up! We share many memories even though we have known each other for one year.

Star: Star is one of my best friends at Qatar Academy. It is great talking to her, and we share many laughs during school. She is really into her studies, and is always there for me when I need help. Its also always fun hanging out with her out of school at the movies or at eachothers house!

Layanne: Layanne is one of the quitest people I have met! She seems to be really really quiet, but once you get to know her and become one of her good friends, she is not like that. Its fun to have conversations with her about absolutely random things. She is very very clever, and is a big help whenever you need help on homework, projects etc.

All of them are in Qatar Academy, except for Mahnoor, who goes to Doha College. As far as it comes to education, I love my school! My average for the first term was 6/7, and 2nd term was 6.1/7. I pretty much enjoy learning!

Well that says it all! Take a look at my wikispace for more information.
