What are your hobbies?
In Lebanon, I liked to hunt birds, but I don’t have a chance to do that much anymore. I love nature, spending time in the backyard, and planting things like mango trees.
What is your fondest childhood memory?
I loved getting presents and got interesting things. Once, I got a pigeon. I had everything. I had a great relationship with my grandfather.
If you could change jobs with someone, what would it be?
In the old country, I was very athletic and I wanted to be a top competitor in karate.
Is there something people don’t now about you that would surprise them?
Not really. I am pretty much what you see.
