Growing up, Naomi Mourra thought she was going to live forever.
She was told the end of the world was coming, but she would survive the apocalypse and live in paradise for eternity, because she was special.
She spent her youth in Western Sydney, preaching these same beliefs to neighbours, strangers, and classmates because Naomi was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness.
Now, though, she describes herself as the city’s only Lebanese, lesbian, ex-Jehovah’s Witness.
Naomi says she “woke up”, and it wasn’t until she realised Armageddon was not actually coming, that she truly started to live.
