I was born in Lebanon and moved to Sydney with my family at a young age. Throughout my school years, I developed a passion to forge a career serving the community and began that journey more than 10 years ago, serving local youth and families.

I currently hold the position of Youth Coordinator at Bankstown Police Citizens and Youth Club (PCYC), where I manage many youth and family programs. This includes work on the Bankstown Families Connect program, which brings together disadvantaged children and their mothers from the local area, to participate in various fun, social and educational activities. In addition, I've developed partnerships with local Police, AFL club GWS Giants and the Lighthouse Community Support group, to manage school leadership programs and youth-led conferences. 

I'm a proud White Ribbon Ambassador and sit on a committee that organises the annual local White Ribbon Day march, which attracts more than 2,000 people. 

I'm also involved in the planning of Harmony Day activities, which bring families of different cultures together, to celebrate multiculturalism in Canterbury-Bankstown, and was awarded the Premier's  Harmony Medal in 2018.
