Through journalism and public speaking I will be a voice for the voiceless.

My Legacy

Once you get to know me you'll see a drive for success in everything I do and how it shines a light to inspire others. Due to hardship in my home country of Morocco, I was not free to make my own choices until the age of 17. With that freedom I used all my energy to focus on my education and future success.


I am the first blind Moroccan to learn 5 languages in the span of 6 years and be awarded a Fulbright Scholarship in 2017. I have inspired others at the University of Arkansas and as a visiting speaker at many American universities. I have achieved my goal of obtaining a masters in journalism and I am currently planning future career goals to share others stories of adversity as well as my own through writing and public speaking.


I am beyond ready to bring success to any team I join. You can find a list of my main talents below and the following button which leads to my full CV.

Work & Collaborations

Although I have been working hard these past few years on my studies in Arkansas, I have made time to visit Boston MA Polytechnical University and North Seattle College to speak on journalism, technology and how my hardships and thirst for knowledge has fueled my passions. Locally, I've been known to help those touring, who want to study at American universities and how to get scholarships, such as Fulbright. I am happy to answer questions or lead discussions.

Open to Speak

I currently have availability for short term projects including motivational speaking, accessibility reviewing, accessibility consulting, tutoring and translating for English, Arabic, French and Braille, TOELF tutoring, GRE tutoring. For availability and pricing contact me below.
