Aimer Shama is actually my pen-name, not for fear of stigma associated with mental illnesses, but because my real name could be hard to pronounce. In English, it could be written as Amr Abo-Shama, but I restricted it to how people tend to say Amr anyway, and my last name but dashless.
Although I studied a lot of subjects, ending with a B.Sc. in Pharmacy and Biotechnology (they call me “doctor” here, but I always wished I could simply be a scientist) I don’t work in the field. It is far too corrupt in my country to get involved in and besmirch my conscience with it, and that I learned leads me to depression and/or mania (latin for madness, but isn’t exactly so). I was and may still be a writer, doctor, small investor and mentor (chiefly language). I aim to open up my own pharmacy soon, but I’m still piecing my capital for that project together.
Many things are changing too fast for me to give this about me justice. I will share a lot more when things stabilize.
Thanks for being interested and I hope you enjoy your visit here.
