A Tribute to Maliha Wehbe
This is to my aunt who died in 2006 of lung cancer.
Aunty, I would like to pay you this tribute as you have been such a beautiful person in my life, my mentor, and I’m not sure if you knew how many lives you touched when you were alive, but I wish I had told you how much you touched mine.
Aunty through these things your legacy and spirit is still so with us.
I admire that you came from a generation that didn’t encourage women to work, let alone have a career and then go on to make it a success, and yet you did all of those things. I admire even more that through your success you never put work before your family.
I admire your humility and most of all I admire your compassion. Nothing but everything mattered to you and your inner strength was formidable, I love you and miss you. Aunty, when I grow up I want to be just like you.
