The slide opened and I heard a gentle, kind voice: "What is your confession, my child?"I was stuffed. The Priest would declare me a heretic my parents would call me a traitorThe Priest asked me again: "What is your confession, my child?""I'm Muslim." I whispered.Welcome to my world. I'm Amal Abdel-Hakim, a seventeen year-old Australian-Palestinian-Muslim still trying to come to grips with my various identity hyphens. It's hard enough being cool as a teenager when being one issue behind the latest Cosmo is enough to disqualify you from the in-group. Try wearing a veil on your head and practising the "bum's up" position at lunchtime and you know you're in for a tough time at school.

And I thought I had problems...
