Originally from Iraq, left Iraq in 1994 and moved to Jordan, Yemen and then immigrated to New Zealand. Lived there with my husband and two daughters for ten years. Back then my husband had a brain injury ( this is my second story - still working on it) and then I moved to Dubai in 2004 - since then he left, I become a single mother , worked hard till daughters graduated and they are living in Australia now
As for other part my life; I worked as translator , as PA , in travel industry and my last position in Dubai was Administration Manager /PA . During the years I worked as Translator in New Zealand on casual basis with Refugee authority and also worked as volunteer with Refugee Board.
Few years back I took courses in NLP and became NLP Coach and NLP Master practitioner and work as coach on small scale only but this influenced my writing. I also run small workshops every few months for individuals
I self -published my first Arabic novel in 2012 الحنين الى الماضي ام عذوبة المستقبل The book got a good response from the media and I was interviewed by Al Sharajah TV ,MBC 1, Al Iraqia TV and by newspapers such as Emirates today and Zahra Al Khaleej magazine
I took time of work and Dubai last year and have been travelling and just came back a month ago to settle and start again in Dubai.I am looking to concentrate on writing and workshops. I have few projects online which I am working on. I am also looking for start publishing my articles. writing was and still part of my life but as you read above life has taken me to so many different places and just now I can write and publish my life, experience and crazy stories
Beside that my passion is design and I work on some designs every few months ( www.facebook.com/kalamdesign)
