Cherin Awad

was @sweden 2012-02-27 to 2012-03-04

Probably one of the most stubborn people you´ve ever met. A person that meets difficulties with laughter. I’m a practicing muslim, single mother of two beautiful boys, lawyer and blogger at I recently started writing for Instead of spending my days in court I’m now spending them with my baby boy (maternity leave). I normally tweet as @cherin_awad. Constantly challenging myself. Latest project is to learn ice skating. Turned out to be a much more painful and embarrassing challenge than I could imagine. Very typical swede besides from one thing. I commit the biggest sin imaginable in Sweden. I HATE DOGS. Meet me— Cherin Awad, the dog hater. Deal with it.

@sweden March 1, 2012, 7:49 a.m.

I blame that bad taste on his father.

@sweden March 1, 2012, 7:49 a.m.

In Sweden we usually eat pancakes with whipped cream and strawberry jam. My son however finds that "messy" and prefers them with sugar.

@sweden March 1, 2012, 7:28 a.m.

@berinder @karusski yeah yeah what ever. Just rub it in..

@sweden March 1, 2012, 7:26 a.m.

Hey I'm kidding! I'm pretty much a pancake queen. I know how to make pancakes! *very convincing tone*

@sweden March 1, 2012, 7:22 a.m.

Neither do we. But its my sons birthday and pancakes for breakfast was one of his wishes. @Littlemarch

@sweden March 1, 2012, 7:19 a.m.

It was true. But come an! The saying doesn't mention the disaster of the second and third pancake?!

@sweden March 1, 2012, 7:15 a.m.

In Sweden we always say that the first pancake is domed to be a disaster. Let's see if its true this time.

@sweden March 1, 2012, 7:14 a.m.

I'm Sweden we always say that the first pancake is domed to be a disaster. Let's see if its true this time.

@sweden Feb. 29, 2012, 8:32 a.m.

Yeah, yeah I know. He doesn't look like a terrorist. But trust me, mass destruction is his true element.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 8:10 p.m.

those of you that thinks parents are excused bcuz stressed and therefore lose control. Why don't they lose it at someone their own size?

@jorge_humberto million thanks dear Jorge. That's very kind of you.

@oGz649 of course you can. I tweet on @cherin_awad but i'll open a new account for English tweets.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:37 a.m.

@israelubeda not now but I try to look it up later tonight.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:34 a.m.

@DrMuu that's very sweet of you Leo. Thanx my friend.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:33 a.m.

With a open mind you'll see good in people you wouldn't have seen. Not cuz its not there. But cuz we are blinded by our own way of thinking

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:32 a.m.

I don't consider it my task to judge anyone. I hate being judged myself. How can I have 2 standards?

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:28 a.m.

@travisaholland check the feed. I get that question pretty often.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:27 a.m.

However since we are only, say 10 in best case 20 arabic speaking lawyers in Sweden I do have a lot of arab clients.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:25 a.m.

Asian, africans, Swedes muslims, jews, gay, black green and red. I do my job. People deserve good and engaged lawyers.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:24 a.m.

And no not all my clients are muslim. Ive been representing all kind of people.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:23 a.m.

When I left for maternity leave I had 270 open cases. so yes- I had a lot to do.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:21 a.m.

I had my first hearing only two weeks after starting my new job at the law firm. I was so nervous I was about to faint.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:20 a.m.

@PerKohler that wasn't a lawyer that was the social worker!

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:19 a.m.

One of to hijabi lawyers. Sorry for not being clear. @coolbeansmabel

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:16 a.m.

And of course, too many hours watching Ally McBeal @ArnoldsKr

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:15 a.m.

Lol to be honest I always wanted to become a doctor. But I lacked few points...;) @ArnoldsKr

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:13 a.m.

The horror. RT "@ahamrud: @sweden ... and then you open your mouth and talk "östgötska" :-)"

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:11 a.m.

It's always the same. They kind of lean their head to the side. Put their hand on my shoulder. Try to look really kind.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:10 a.m.

And of course when I represent women victims of domestic violence they always think I'm the one they should feel sorry for.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:08 a.m.

There has been some comical, pretty embarrassing moments too. Especially at the migration board where they always assume I'm seeking asylum.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:04 a.m.

But most times its all positive reactions. I have to bear in mind that I was the first muslim hijabi lawyer in Sweden. There's only 2 of us.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:02 a.m.

The migration board tried to convince my client to choose a non muslim lawyer. @DrMuu

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 11:01 a.m.

@DrMuu in court you mean? Yes. Twice. One a jugderefused to believe I was a lawyer because of my hijab and once the representative from

No wigs, no costumes in swedish courts. @chau_s

And yes I go to court wearing my hijab (veil).

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 10:57 a.m.

I work as a lawyer handling a lot of different cases. before my leave most of my cases was in the fields of family/migration/criminal law

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 10:54 a.m.

Many of you are asking what I do for living. As I wrote in my presentation I'm on a maternity leave right now. When I'm not

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 10:53 a.m.

Cherin or shirin as its pronounced is a persian name and means sweet or sweetness @Johnssonskan

@pikucom wow! That's beautiful! I had no idea that was the origin.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 10:25 a.m.

@ZuckerBaby no Sweden is completely insect free ;) I hate them too. Very much.

And no. The name she chooses isn't Mohammed. But it could've been.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 10:10 a.m.

So the poor girl's been lying to her greek friends making up a name..

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 10:09 a.m.

It might please you greek people that my sisters name is Malak. Means angel in arabic. Not in greek though, ive heard.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 10:08 a.m.

Very interest how beautiful names in one language isn't all that beautiful in others.

@alf_ls well we'd probably do the same if we knew there would be a warm sunny beach 2hrs drive away..

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 7:25 a.m.

Sorry for confusing you with the name of my son. Just call him Mohammed.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 7:23 a.m.

@genkitten well yes. That's his middle name.

No more bed for me unfortunately. Going to Stockholm today. But first preparing my son Bilaal for school.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 7:14 a.m.

@Boete yeah it will probably melt away here too.

@sweden Feb. 28, 2012, 7:12 a.m.

I know it will seem to you as if I'm born in thewrong country but when I see snow I just realise how warm and tempting my bed is.

False alarm. Passport found. The other brother had taken both passports. And forgotten about it... no further comments.

Many of you are concerned about my safety. Don't worry. The batteries and fire alarm are now where they should be.

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 4:40 p.m.

@chchchawes ill do my best. However I think we are the most potatoe eating people in the world.

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 4:38 p.m.

Everything should be raw when you put it in the tajine. Add few drops of olive oil and wait. Takes about 2-3h in the oven.

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 4:36 p.m.

I used saffron, cumin, red pepper and salt. And the secret Swedish ingredient I added was a bit cream.

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 4:34 p.m.

So the recipe to the tajine: chicken potatoes, carrots, onion, sunroots, and garlic. Season it with whatever you want. I used

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 4:19 p.m.

@smamat it took me about 2 hours, could have stayed in for another hour but my kids were hungry.

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 4:17 p.m.

Today on my fathers birthday I pray he will be able to leave #syria as soon as possible and for safety and peace for the syrian people.

@NotDeadJustYet I would love to. As long as you eat my food and stay away from my son. Deal?

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 4:09 p.m.

@leonieke sure I just need to look up the english names of the ingredients.

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 4:07 p.m.

Since I removed the batteries from the fire alarm I'm now back in the bragging business.

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 4:07 p.m.

It's kind me difficult to make a tajine look nice on a photo, but here you go.

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 3:12 p.m.

@davidbrax Haha! I'm not sure I dare to. Let me taste it first...

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 3:10 p.m.

With that said. I don't know anything about moroccan cooking.

@sweden Feb. 27, 2012, 3:08 p.m.

The idea was to cook swedenized form of moroccan tajeen. However there is a MAX (swe hamburger bar) 2 min walk from my home.
