I was born, grew up and studied in Meknes, a mid-sized city in the center of the Morocco's agricultural region. I studied Arabic language and literature at the university, and have been working as a teacher of Arabic as a foreign language primarily to American students. I am very excited to have the opportunity now to work with American students studying Arabic in their own country. I hope it will be a very enriching cultural experience on both sides. In my free time, I like to read, travel and participate in sports (walking, hiking, bicycling, soccer among others).
