About me

My background reflects my interests: mixed. I’m half Egyptian, half British but grew up in Saudi Arabia in an American compound as my Dad worked for an oil company. It was basically pre-ordained that, with all these cultural connections across the world, I was destined to be a perpetual traveller.

I’m a lover of travel. Although I’m not a fan of the actual act of sitting hours in a confined space, destined to wake up the moment you fall asleep, subject to the worst paid food you’ve ever had, and that distinct anti-septic smell of airplane permeating your very pores, the destination always makes it worth it.

Currently doing a postgraduate in magazine journalism at Cardiff University and hoping that I can incorporate my love of all things food, music, books and travel into an amazing career.
