A little bit about me

I am an adventurous, independent, confident, sarcastic and a friendly person. My name originally comes from the Quran and means happiness and laughter. Many people I know underestimate my abilities, but are later surprised by the skills and continuous abilities I have. I love to horse ride, knit, read, cook, play board games, guitar... I also love to watch movies and TV shows. My family is made up of 6 members, I have 2 sisters (one older and one younger) and an older brother. I have lived in Canada for 3 years and will be moving soon. Because of my dads work we move every 3 years or so, recently I have lived in Switzerland, Jordan , Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Italy and I have kind of gotten used to it. I come from a country that is too pretty to be explained, its not like any other country. The words "too pretty" make you think it is green, filled with water like the picture above but in fact its NOT. Its dry, hot, sandy and filled with friendly people, can you guess which country it is ?

YEP! Its Jordan! Its famous for the two 7 Wonders of the World: Petra and Wadi Rum. After we visited Jordan last summer I decided to make a vlog about Petra and Wadi Rum, which I edited and posted it on YouTube (unfortunately its private).

Hobbies & Sports

I have so many hobbies that I love and enjoy doing such as:

Basketball, Knitting, Soccer, Read, Cook desserts, and play the guitar

I actually look for dessert recipes online from an Italian YouTuber called LauraVitale. I also love to explore the computer and make videos and websites. I am currently a Media Master for Peer Tutoring and was responsible for making the Links Video and the school Peer Tutoring Website:
