Cheated on my boyfriend, want to convert to Islam

I want to convert to Islam but I’m scared. I have no Muslim friends and have so many questions. I have stopped drinking and smoking. However the hijab is a big challenge for me.

I am a revert facing hatred from my parents; I also discovered recently that I was raped by my father in my childhood

I am a recent convert to Islam, but I always believed in waiting for marriage before having ‘sex’, and I was hurt to find out that this happened when I was younger, because I felt like I was living a lie. My mother doesn’t know that I have found out what happened, because I read it in a case file for a lawsuit against my biological father.

His parents reject me because I am not an Egyptian

I am an American female (32) and he is an Egyptian Male (32). We became friends long ago by chat. I have even visited Egypt and met him in person. We were considering marriage before I reverted, and at that time the revolution was beginning and circumstances changed. We stopped talking.

I have found someone for marriage but my parents say I should finish my degree.

I don’t know what I should do, I am scared to speak to my family about it as they want to see me to be successful in university. What’s your advice? I know you will say, go speak to my parents about it but what should I do?
