Name: "Theresa Trad"

Hello! My name is Theresa Trad, and I am 23 years old. I was born and raised in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. I am currently attending the University of Windsor for a degree in the Psychology and Dramatic Arts. I most recently got a job as a server at a restaurant called Taza is Fresh, which I`m sure most of you guessed, is a Lebanese cuisine restaurant. It`s already hard enough for me to resist the food.. I love meeting new people, because I feel it makes life more interesting and enjoyable. One of my hobbies is travelling.. only when I can afford it of course. Travelling is by far the best way of learning to me. I would rather experience it than read about it.

I fell in love with Lebanon during my sixth trip there, in 2007. I experienced it to the maximum, and promised my family that I would return as much as possible. Since then, I have travelled back in 2009 and 2012, and I’m looking forward to a new experience this summer. My ultimate dream is to be married to a Lebanese man and live in Lebanon one day, raising my children there (Inchalla).

Name: "Kristin"

Hello all! My name is Kristin Arguedas Arias, although, my Facebook page reads Kristin Jamed (my mother's birth last name). I am 29 years old. I was born and raised in the United States of America, in the state of Georgia. I am currently studying for a degree in Biology and I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Foreign Language (Spanish) with a minor in Humanities and pre nursing. Two of my passions are the arts and sciences, hence the two very different academic paths I have chosen to follow. I am applying for a Master's next year in Clinical Nurse Leadership program and hopefully I will be using my Biology degree for Medical school later on. I currently am working in a hospital as an assistant to the Nurse Manager. I help him with management of two ICU's and although I didn't study Business management, my strong work ethic opened up this opportunity for me. I have four loves in life, my family, my travels, my education and my job. There are two un -Lebanese things about me, one, I don't like the beach and two, I don't like parties. I am a bit of an introvert, except when it comes to interacting at work. My aspirations include helping as many people as I can, whether it be medically, psychologically and to a lesser extent financially. I am not s baller, yet, such an American thing to say lol. I believe God gave me the gift of gab, which means I talk a lot, but I know how to say what needs to be said, when it needs to be said. Other than all those things I just mentioned, I am just like everyone else :)

Name: "Serge Haddad"

Ahlan ! My name is Serge Haddad. I’m 24 years old and I live in Canada. My family left our homeland 23 years ago, when I was 1 year of age. We’ve been living in Montreal since, but it seems that my parents forgot my heart in Beirut! 

I’m currently in my last year of Law School after completing my first degree in International Relations, both here in Montreal. With that, I plan on serving my Country and my community in any way that I can, from anywhere that I may be in the world, in order to help bring back that Sacred Peace to Lebanon and the Lebanese people who have been longing for it for much too long now. Will there be peace in the Middle East, you wonder? “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” (Luke 11:9-10) 

IF WE BELIEVE WE CAN ACHIEVE !

LONG LIVE BEIRUT & ONE LOVE FOR LEBANON ! بحبƒ Šا „ب†ا† !

Name: "Miriam Moussallem"

 

My name is Miriam. I am 28 years old and turning 29 in August. I live in Heliopolis, Cairo, Egypt. I was born and I still live here in Egypt, despite all what you all have been hearing about Egypt. I was graduated from Ain Shams university, Faculty of Oral and Dental Medicine in the year 2006. I have been working since then as a Dentist. I have been a general practitioner in the dental field until 2010, when I started doing my postgraduates. I had my Higher Diploma Degree in Endodontics in 2011. I chose this branch of study because I know how much pain it brings to someone when their tooth is aching so much and they want to keep it instead of having it removed!! Since I had my diploma, my cases of extraction decreased a lot. This is because I started walking in the route of conserving, protecting and treating the tooth instead of removing it. It sounds fun to me. I love my career and I am kind of dedicated to it. I am not a poet, but I love writing. I do it often. I am fond of travelling. I have been doing it since I was 12. I visited France, the United States, Australia and finally my amazing trip to Lebanon (the piece of heaven on earth) in 2010. I’m excited about meeting all of you ! :)

Name: "Sarah B."

My name is Sarah B. and I just turned 22 years old. I live in Lausanne, Switzerland, where I was also born. I am in law school and about to achieve my Master’s degree. I really enjoy my studies: I like the idea of defending people's rights. This is why I also work in this area: I am employed by a Professor at my University. Mostly, I help him in his academic researches. On my free time, I like arts and sports, especially dance.
