This chapter describes the story of Natasha Almas Fell. She is 14 years old and wants to be an extreme-sports instructor, a marine biologist, or a Charlie's Angel. Natasha considers herself Muslim because she has been brought up that way. She cannot speak Urdu fluently like she can English, but she knows some phrases. Most of the boundaries Natasha is subjected to are not to do with being a Muslim but with what her parents would like. Her family celebrates Eid and Christmas because her father is English and her mum is Pakistani.

Keywords:   Natasha Almas Fell, Muslim, English, Pakistan, Urdu, Eid, Christmas
