Published

on

The beautiful Jamila Awad has recently joined the cast of the TV drama ‘Ella Ana,’ the series discusses the daily struggles that women of Egypt face.

This time, Jamila Awad is portraying the life of a girl with vitiligo disease, similar to the story of the one and only Logaina Salah. 

Logina Salah, the beautiful and incredibly strong woman, who didn’t allow her vitiligo disease to stop her from carrying out her life the way she meant it to be. She is a source of inspiration to many and an example of how a woman can truly embrace who she is, without any sense of shame or doubt.

In the episode ‘I Must Live,’ we see how Jamila Awad is struggling to keep her reality hidden and tucked away from people, for all the pain she went through as a child and the judgments she tried to avoid.

So far, the series showed how Jamila Awad has been continuously judged and mocked to a point, in which she chose to cover up who she is with makeup.

In the series, we see the protective mother who wants nothing but for her girl to feel comfortable in her own skin. We see the supportive best friend, played by Salma Abu Deif, who encourages her to not hide away her beauty and there’s the boyfriend, who is still unaware of her disease. The question is, how will he react to her disease when he finally finds out?

All stories of the TV drama are inspired by real life events, that shed the light on issues that have always been of major significance to our community.

In less than 24 hours, the show is already trending and we’re absolutely enjoying every episode.
