My friend Sukayna and I were the lead along with two boys.
Sukayna and I were the two angels: Goodness and Evil, who come down from the heavens to Earth and meet two crazy people, and they all go looking for the reason of evil spreading everywhere. And guess what? I was the evil angel! And Sukayna was the good angel.
Two officers were our trainers. They first taught us the basics about safety, and then we had training sessions teaching us "abseiling" (or rappelling) down walls. Then they took us to the theater. It was hard work and I was really scared at first, but they helped me get rid of my fears easily. This is how they made us go down: Sukayna and I were both wearing harnesses and we were attached to a rope. There are of course bars at the top above the stage where we were standing, and the trainers had tied the ropes in a specific way, and we stood on the bars let go and slowly, slowly, they let us down.
Watch the video of me going down!
The play was a great success, my whole grade worked so hard rehearsing for about 6 weeks, it was tiring but we really enjoyed it. Watch a video of the play. It's all in Arabic!
I got a great surprise at the end the last night, when our trainers presented Sukayna and I with official certificates from the head of the 71st (Anti Terrorist ) Unit to certify that we had completed the abseiling course given in the Jordanian Armed Forces!!
