One of my greatest loves in life is my journey.

For as long as I can remember, I wanted a home. A safe place where family and friends gather to share meals and stories. A welcoming place to cultivate ideas and encourage growth. As it turns out, as a child, I did not have a traditional home life. I spent many years in transition between my parents’ homes and friends’ homes. Although the transitions created feelings of instability, they also placed me in a position of vulnerability. In this vulnerable position, I learned the importance of knowing how to ask for help and how to accept and appreciate the help of others.

This led me to another important life lesson: the power of connection. Through experience, I learned that it takes one moment of connection to shift from negativity to positivity. It takes one moment of connection to create a positive outcome.

Over several years, I worked to establish my own home, which I now share with my husband, Hani, my two children, Leila and Tarik, and my dog, Marlon Brando. This site is an extension of my home. It is a safe and welcoming place where I share pieces of my life story and celebrate the power of connection. I hope you will join me and share pieces of your life story too.

Let’s journey together.
