Ever since I was a child in Iraq, I loved performing; from modeling, to singing, to dancing, to acting, I was always a bit of a showgirl. Luckily, I now have audiences that appreciate (and pay for) my art! Indeed, dreams do sometimes come true!


The first time I got on a "real" stage as an adult was part of a radio music contest in Amman in 2008. At the time, I had petrifying stage fright, which gladly got much better with time. Since then, I have had several acoustic duo musical collaborations in Arabic and English with wonderful friends and artists, and now I am part of a super colorful queer-feminist musical art collective in Berlin called Heart Chor. We create musicals, concerts, and variety shows; spreading joy while raising awareness on important social issues.

I grew up in a culture where dancing was restricted to female-only events and family gatherings, so my talents in belly dance remained hidden for a couple of decades. It took me a while to take my passion for the dance out to the world, and when I did, I also expanded to other types of dance. I particularly fell in love with and extensively trained in Brazilian zouk.

I tremendously enjoy dabbling into improv comedy (short form) and cabaret theater, and I intend to do more of that in the near future. I love having the space to verbally improvise, spontaneously embody random characters on stage, and allow myself to fail gloriously!


For years I hid this video out of embarrassment, but now I embrace it as part of my story. 


This is my first media appearance ever, and it was a TV commercial for  a clothing store doing holiday sales! 

Be easy on me - I was 19! (Amman, 2008)

That's one thing I haven't done for a while, but would be open to doing so again if the chance comes along. I modeled for a few shows and commercials back in my early 20's!
