I always stumble when asked to write a bio. I don’t know what to write in a bio I mean am I supposed to say that I’m 27 and feel like I’m just learning how to walk, career-wise? Should I state that I studied Nutrition & Dietetics at the American University of Beirut then worked in Marketing for two years and I am now transitioning back into the health sector while holding on to the hobby of writing as my escape? Or should I just say that I’m simply someone trying to live a life of meaning, growth, and love? Like I never know.

An adult TCK, a polyglot, a profession shifter and a life coach. I belong nowhere and everywhere. I’m a student of life and boy does life want to teach us.
