I was born in Beirut during war time. I like to dance, write poetry, swim, play music, and paint. I also enjoy learning new languages. I like to surf the Internet and read books. My favourite author is Paulo Coelho.
My grandmother (the mother of my mother) has been my mentor. When my father died, my mom had to work hard, so I spent a long time with my grandparents. I think that as a Lebanese, what makes me different from the other contestants is the polyvalent culture I received from my country and the many languages I know.
