I am a Lebanese woman from Zgharta, a town in the North Governorate.
I have two brothers.
In my free time, you can find me cruising in my car with music on.
I am an enthusiast humanitarian.
I believe in the power of words and specially the Arabic language.
I aim at breaking social taboos and raising awareness about mental health.
I am currently doing my Masters in Trauma Informed Care at the University of Nottingham, UK. My area of focus is sexual abuse and exploitation.
I am a Psychology graduate of the American University of Beirut.
I have a French Baccalaureate from Lycee Alphonse de Lamartine.
I worked at KAFA for two years during which I was a case worker with women in prostitution and victims of sex trafficking. I supported more than 200 women in prostitution in Hbeish Detention Center in Beirut. After these, I had a TEDXtalk about my experience.
Earlier, I was the Coordinator of a project on Early Marriage with RET Liban during which I supervised the work of 3 social workers.
Yet, my first work experience was with War Child Holland in Lebanon as a Technical Officer in Child Protection. This is when I discovered my interest in studying sexual abuse and exploitation further.
I deliver trainings on social and psychological topics.
These include but are not limited to sessions on Trauma, Communication, Sexuality, Parenting, Relationships, and Psychological Wellbeing.
I create visual, written, and audio content about these too.
In addition, I am a PSEA specialist. I develop content and deliver awareness sessions and trainings on the topic.
Last but not least, to be able to reach the widest audience, I create and host تابو, the #1 podcast show on social and psychological topics in the Arab World.
