"People will try to confuse you

Try to define who you are

People will try to distract you

From the love in your heart"

Book Cover Are You Listening?

Are You Listening? is a journey of sound, sight and story. Using poems and stories, this memoir explores intergenerational displacement, and speaks the truths of a woman who loses her innocence at a young age due to cultural inequity, and is forced to navigate a terrain foreign to her ancestors.

About me

As a child of immigrants, born on the coast of BC Canada, my art is how I reckon with my identity whilst I live in rural and white Nelson BC. I am Lebanese, Iraqi and Palestinian. I am my culture personified. Since I live out of context to my origins, I rely on stories and perspectives inherited from those who came before me. My current projects, a spoken word series and a memoir,  are anchors to my longing to belong, to my people, from afar.
