Ayat's been more than a friend to me. She was more like a younger sibling. We talked about life, our families and we supported each other in times of need.
At the software company where I met her, se a competent accounting person. Fought for what she believe is right. Never backing down for a single moment. What I like about her is her frankness. She didn't mince with her words. That is why she is trustworthy and our friendship thrived on that.
A year after I left that company, Ayat did too. She transferred to a telco. At the same time she put up a small business together with some cousins. With a lot of adventure in her system, Ayat went to Dubai to seek another kind of life.
She was here last month. And writing this now makes me miss her.
