My upcoming book announced at Emirates Airlines Festival of Literature


Everyone! I am pleased to announce that I will be releasing a book – hopefully early next year.

This was officially announced at the Emirates Airlines Festival of Literature where I was invited to talk and discuss my upcoming book and elaborate on issues that matter in the Arab world.

The book aims to combat misconceptions and stereotypes between Arabs and the West – I made this official announcement during the  Emirates Airlines Literature Festival – I am very grateful for the invitation and for giving me the platform to express my excitement in publishing a book!

The book – with the working title of “London through Arab Eyes” – is slated for release in early 2017.

It chronicles my time in the UK and seeks to explain what it means to live as an immigrant in a major Western capital to an Arab audience.

I do owe my experience in London quite a bit, and I say that with a lot of gratitude and a lot of thanks. London has opened its arms to me and changed the way I look at life and the way I live my life.

The book is a humble attempt to try and say things the way they are. One of the definitions of experience is an accumulations of mistakes and this is a book about mistakes. Everybody makes mistakes and we can relate to each other’s as well.
