Hello ~ Marhaba

Hello there, I'm called Sahar, which means pre-dawn in Arabic. My parents chose this name for me since I came into the world during those early morning hours.  I've been on a journey of self-discovery and growth, carving out my own path in life and finding joy and happiness along the way. My world may be tinged with shades of purple, but I don't let that hold me back. Instead, I aim to inspire others, share my stories and experiences, and build a community of like-minded individuals. So, come on in, pull up a chair, and let's share a meal together. Welcome, or as we say in Arabic, Marhaba and Ahla  O Sahla! ​

My Story

In the tapestry of my life, woven with threads of resilience and gratitude, I stand today, humbled by the journey that has brought me here. Commencing as a refugee in Lebanon, my path was cast amid the shadows of an early marriage, veiling my youth in responsibilities beyond its years. Yet, within the depths of my being, an ember of courage flickered, compelling me to unfurl the wings of my passport and liberate myself from the clutches of a life preordained, where the shadows of self-doubt cast a long and wearying pall.

 

Writing has evolved into both my sanctuary and anchoring presence. I find expression in both Arabic and English, yet some days, my native tongue calls to me, especially when I seek solace and uplifting. I am committed to preserving the integrity of my work in each language, refraining from translating between them, for each holds its distinct essence and meaning. Embracing the uniqueness of each language, I pay tribute to their individual beauty.

When I step away from my writing, I wholeheartedly embrace the kitchen, where my passion for cooking and serving others merges into a beautiful symphony of flavors and experiences. Throughout my culinary journey, I have embarked on a delightful adventure, exploring a multitude of flavors and techniques that have taken me to countless places in the world of plant-based cuisine.

 

With a heart brimming with pride, I stand before you, a testament to the metamorphosis that blooms when one dares to embrace their authentic self. It is an honor to open the treasure troves of my experiences and share them with you. So let's embark on this adventure together!
