“There’s always a blessing to thank God for; the ones you are aware of, and the ones you are not.”-Unknown

One of my blessings is Dance!

Passionate about the history of Dance, I began taking dance classes at Caracalla Dance School at the age of six. My enthusiasm and passion grew after watching the professional dancers’ rehearsals during the 5 minutes break; I was curious to learn more about their lifestyles, how they work, how they dance and sweat all day, how they beautifully do the double and triple pirouettes, and how they fly when jumping landing in an artistic pose.

Observing them helped me realize my desire and passion to being a professional performer. Hard work and motivation, help me to improve my skills and realize my dream.

Dreams do come true!

Perseverance and hard work on myself drew the attention of my dance instructor, who decided to give me the opportunity of not only being a part of the advanced program at the Caracalla Dance School, but also of being a member of the Caracalla Dance Company, as I have participated in several theatre productions, performed in International festivals in Lebanon, as well as Opera houses and Theatres in other countries (USA, China, Oman, UAE, KSA, Kuwait, France, etc.).

Dance with your soul and your body will follow.

After 20 years of classes at Caracalla Dance School, this institute became not only my safe haven, but also my second home. Not to mention the Caracalla’s’, whom I regard as my second family.


“Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there” – Meryl Streep.

Fascinated by the range of cinematography, curious about the outcomes of movies and series, how actors/actresses perform their roles, their opinion regarding the scenery, the setups of every location, as well as the inner psychology and its reflection on every character, etc. has helped me discover my love of being an actress, playing challenging personalities, expressing my feelings, and how to reach out to the viewers and approach them to the personalized character.

As a result, I decided to pursue my undergraduate studies in the field of Radio and television.
I studied Radio TV at L’académie Libanaise des Beaux Arts – ALBA in Lebanon with the goal of learning more about and understanding the field, particularly everything related to the mise en scene, what happens around the actors, and how they react to it.

Step by step, I had the opportunity to begin my acting career with the first series, “Beirut City”, premiered in 2018, followed by Al Nahat 2020 and Oum Badila Ramadan 2021, as well as the film Tuesday 12 in 2020.

In addition to being the face of major brands such as Dior, Fendi and Pantene. In additament, I am working with a number of Lebanese Female Designers to promote women’s empowerment.
