I come from a land far far away, a country called Lebanon. This piece of information earned me a free DVD once at a gig in Brooklyn. The only time i ever win anything because i come from Lebanon. The host of the event asked: “Who ever comes from the furthest away in the audience , will win this DVD of mixing imagery with music,” pretty cool stuff! Luckily there were no Asians in the house!
I am from a city in Lebanon called Zahle, the capital of the Bekaa valley, famous for its unique wines and hearty cuisine.

My love of food and genuine interest in culture led me to the food studies program at New York University. From there, I fell into the journalism program during my second year because I discovered a true passion about writing and reporting. I am now slowly paving my way through the online and televised media world.
I started this blog in January 2009 to follow the reporting I have done in a journalism class.
But this blog has now become a platform for me to share with you all interesting issues that I come across in life, work and random encounters, as long as these are related in some way to Lebanon or Lebanese in or outside of their country.
