Infectiously friendly. Perpetually giggly. Fiercely authentic. Promotor of daily walks, coffee dates and self-worth.
I’m a punny, sassy Syrian who calls Cleveland her home and the world her playground. I’ve been a member of the blogosphere since 2013 and a member of planet Earth since 1994. I have a Bachelors of Arts in journalism and I have a dream of being that lady who always brings a homemade muffin basket to the office that everyone loves.
My friends have this running joke that wherever I go, I’ll make at least five friends. I am a firm believer that 30-second dance parties can cure all. I believe the key to happiness is a library card. I drool over all things art and culture. I’m a self-proclaimed chef whose body is composed of 70% sweet potato. I love traveling the world and eating my way through the places I visit. In my spare time, you can find me painting forests on canvas, rendezvousing in a café, making funny faces at the nearest baby or riding public transportation in hopes of a story, a person, a lesson.
Most of all, I believe storytelling has the power to bring people as close as possible to the heart of the world.
