fedwa When I was working in the laboratory, story ideas would leap at me and I wished I had some vehicle through which I would have been able to communicate them. I am a chemist and I did a lot of data crunching throughout the day but I wanted to write. I missed writing.

I am an English Professor of Writing. I have a B.A. in English with a specialization in Writing, a B.S. in Chemistry, a M.A. in Journalism and a M.S. in Analytical Chemistry. I had various careers because of my education and special interests. However, I always thought of the magazine, Spirit: A magazine designed for the diverse woman, my dear friend, Sammer Ghouleh had established years ago, in 2003. I had enjoyed writing for this magazine and was very proud of its success and how it was able to reach out to millions of readers. I missed writing about my experiences, giving advice and sharing ideas.

Recently, I met with Sammer and she asked my opinion about reviving Spirit and instead of having a print edition or hard copy placing the magazine on the web. I felt that this was an excellent idea. In this digital age, this was the best way to go. It would be a free, inexpensive electronic publication available to all. I was excited about this not so new venture.

Spirit magazine welcomes our dedicated members back and our newest readers. I would like to introduce you or if you are already familiar with Spirit magazine to reintroduce you to a publication that unites all women of diverse backgrounds regardless of color, ethnicity, faith or race. The mission of this magazine is, and always will be, to build a bridge of respect and understanding amongst all the cultures of the world.

As we move forward, we will strive to reach new heights with quality articles that inspire and nurture the inner self and empower women of all backgrounds. You will read about fascinating women from different backgrounds that will stimulate you with their incredible accomplishments. We anticipate publishing Spirit four times a year.

Please read Spirit: A magazine designed for the diverse woman on the web at www.spiritmagazineonline.com.
