Interests

Despite not having the chance to travel much yet, I still have a great passion for it, and plan to discover many more places in the future.

I have travelled mainly across northern Europe and to the Middle East. My frequent destination is Lebanon, my country of origin, and where I lived for over a year working as a journalist.

One of the reasons I became a journalist despite studying travel and tourism was due to my huge interest in politics, especially in the Middle East.
