Fluent in Arabic, French and English she has worked on a variety of projects, but has mostly been interested in documentaries related to social issues, trying to make a difference in the world by raising awareness through film.
Due to her musical background, she also likes documentaries related to art and music since she grew up with a family of musicians and music has been her first love before diving into the film world. This led her to start a music blog Earblend in 2010, in which she interviews and films bands and concerts. She also occasionally films short videos for Workers Unite Film Festival and other similar clients.
