Notes: I was born in Lebanon and live now in Hawaii. I started freediving in April 2005 with Deron Verbeck 4X US national record holder. Shortly after, in May I took part in the Kona Freedive Invitational where I placed 2nd in the women. In August I went to the World in Europe and I won the ICARE trophy for 2nd Best Female Revelation of the year 2005. I work on a snorkeling boat, I paint, and I am a Chi Nei Tsang instructor.

Personal bests:
4:55 Min. Static 39 Meters Constant Weight 75 Meters Dynamic w fins

Where do I usually dive:
Hawaii. Mostly in Pu'u Honua-O-Honaunau Bay where we have training lines.

Favourite freediving spots:
I love Kealakekua Bay where some scuba divers erected a sort of small underwater shrine at 112" deep and placed a statue of Buddha on the top. When you are diving and the shrine reveals itself to you it is like entering a very sacred place. Really beautiful. Dolphins go there sometimes.

Best freediving experience:
My first "AIDA World Championships" in Villefranche-Sur-Mer, Nice in 2005. I opened the women dive and from the last breath I took before I started my official dive to the first I inhaled upon my surfacing it was an amazing dance. Everything clicked into an incredible focus and I felt I could have dove for ever... no limits. It was the most perfect effortless dive I have ever done. That was also the first time I got my tag. You should have seen my smile... I also broke my tooth taking off my monofin.
