Since I was very young I was always so interested in arts and fashion. I admire how designers come up with their creations, how models walk the runway, how a single campaign picture would make you want to buy the product; I categorized all these things as a form of art.
An international career awaiting this beautiful Lebanese model
I remember that one of my favorite things to do when I was around 7 years old, was to stay on the couch on a weekend day and just watch whatever Fashion TV was playing, for hours! Growing up with social media made it even easier to keep up-to-date with all and anything fashion has to give. Even though it has influenced me greatly throughout these years, I would never have imagined being where I am today.
A few months later, I was in London with my dad and brother about to watch a Musical. We went into Subway to grab a quick bite, and while I was placing my order, I got scouted by two agents from Models 1… It sounds crazy at first but this made me realize that you could get scouted almost anywhere and at anytime! I was and still am in disbelief of how this all happened, but all I could say is that my mom was right! After signing with Models 1 in London, I got into Elite Models Management in Los Angeles. These two years of modeling have helped me develop my skills and get me familiarized with the modeling field.

As I was still in high school, I made sure to balance my passion and education by focusing on my school work all year and model during my time off. Now that I’m 18, I’ve got big goals to pursue in modeling and challenges I’m willing to face in its highly competitive world. One of my goals for the upcoming year is to create a clothing line, which will include a combination of styles and unique pieces that will be made in Italy. I’ve been gathering ideas and started sketching my collection, and I’m really excited to see how it’ll turn out.

My family has been my greatest support throughout this new journey. I’m lucky enough to consider my mom as my momager, as she’s not only the reason I am who I am today as a person, but she also keeps me strong, motivated and advises me in almost everything I do. My dad and brother have also been there for me and showed pride in all my accomplishments. Being surrounded by their love and encouragement is something I can’t thank them enough for.
Like Mother like daughter…

Being a model has changed me in many good ways. It taught me to know who I am and build up my character. It taught me to accept failures and work hard for success. It isn’t as easy as people may think. But just like everything in life, if you’re passionate about something, you enjoy every part of it. The adrenaline that rushes through me when I get booked for a brand I love or products I use is just surreal. I got to meet so many great people along the way who I learned so much from. I can’t wait to continue this journey and see what the world has prepared for me!»
