What are your 3 earliest memories in life?

-At 3 years old, I saw a black worm in the shape of a ring on the wall. I actually put my index finger through it, thinking it was an actual ring! It moved and ever since then, I’ve had scoleciphobia (fear of worms)

-Riding on my grandpa’s shoulders among the sheep near the hen house  🙂

-Avocado morning cocktails with dad before preschool

If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be?

Pio, a miraculous stigmatist, and mystic Italian priest, now venerated as a saint in the Catholic Church.

What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done? 

The most courageous thing I’ve ever done was leaving my beloved country, Lebanon, to move to Saudi Arabia. This meant leaving behind a whole community of passionate students and followers, my family and friends, and my established career as a producer and actress. I took this bold step to explore the unknown in a rising country, starting from scratch in a different culture and environment.

Who’s your favorite rockstar (actual or figurative) and why? 

My favorite rockstar, in the figurative sense, is the community of pros. They represent the unity and strength of one rockstar, empowering each other and making a collective impact.

As for an actual rockstar, I’d choose Metallica. I’ve been a fan since I was 12 years old. Their music, despite being universal, transcends my soul and speaks profoundly to my inner self.

What superpower would you most like to have? 

The power of instant healing
