Salah-2-(1).JPGA little about me....

Hometown: I was born and spent my childhood in Alexandria, Egypt. I immigrated to the US after completing my first year of Law School at the University of Alexandria.

Studied / Lived Abroad: I graduated from the University of Washington and I later worked in Doha, Qatar as a legal advisor. I also lived in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I traveled to Greece, Italy, Spain, England, Sweden, Turkey and Saudi Arabia and I hope my next stop is East Asia.

A few of my hobbies: I love going to coffee shops, meals with friends, music, reading, writing literature.

Something I Love About Seattle: I love everything about Seattle! The people are patient and kind, it’s beautiful, a big city with village life. It has a diverse culture and cuisine from all over the world. I love houses with fireplaces, warm coffee shops, and crystal blue waters in summer.

My Favorite Apps: I love YouTube both listening to others’ podcasts and old Arabic music videos. All topics interest me, but especially so, international relations and law.52744584-391845654947972-7053109072022732800-n-(1).jpg

My Favorite Store: My favorite store is Costco. A very reasonable annual membership gives the shopper access to well-priced and good quality items. From clothing to deli foods to excellent wines. You can also find all the latest books, and of course excellent chocolate!

My First Job: I was cook helper at a restaurant on Dupont Circle, in Washington DC.

I bet you never knew that I..... A theater play I wrote, was staged on Capitol Hill, at the New City Theater. It’s titled “On a Sunday Afternoon in Sedro-Woolley”.
