What's something on your bucket list? 

I’d love to see the northern lights and swim in the Great Barrier Reef. 

What's your favorite place you've traveled to and why?  

Malta. The beaches are stunning, the architecture is beautiful and representative of all the countries that have tried to rule this island throughout history. It felt like I was walking in the sets of Game of Thrones everywhere I went (Season 1 was filmed here). Also, I got to see the Megalithic Temples while there, which date back to 3600 BC and are the oldest free-standing structures on earth!   

What is your proudest accomplishment? 

Purchasing a house in Atlanta with my husband in 2022 is one of my proudest accomplishments.  

What did you want to be when you were small?  

I wanted to be an astronaut.  

My latest book recommendation: 

“Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know” by Adam Grant  

My life story in exactly one sentence:  

I came, I saw, I conquered. 

My favorite restaurant in Atlanta:  

Bismillah Cafe on Buford Highway! 

My favorite comfort food or family recipe:  

Pasta or Haleem (a beef stew)
