My name is Jawa and I’m a twenty five year old writer from Kuwait. Now I know what you’re thinking, “Jawa is a creature on Star Wars, right?”


But in Arabic, Jawa has a very poetic meaning; ‘the pain and longing you feel when you’re separated from the one you love’.

Not impressed? Fine, you can make ONE Star Wars joke. Get creative, because I’ve heard them all.

I blog about anything and everything that comes to mind about Kuwait and being Arab and all I ask is that you read my blog with respect and an open mind. We may do certain things differently here, but we all have more in common than you might think.
