So my name is Mera Dada as some of you may know. I have been living in the United Arab Emirates for 20 years now, which is literally my whole life, born and raised here.(I think I should have the passport by now just saying..)
I am originally from Lebanon, from a city in the South called “Sidon,”but its pronounced “Saida.” Im the only girl between my siblings, I have two older brothers who are currently working in the United Arab Emirates. I finally settled in a university after a couple years of finding myself. Started studying Film Production in SAE Institute Dubai. I am currently living in Abu Dhabi, going back and forth to university which isn’t as hard as I thought it would be.
In ten years time, I hope to have accomplished my dream of writing a book and making it into a movie. If one person in the world related to my book in any way that would be an accomplishment for me, because the book is based on a true story. I would have to say the book would be considered a tragedy, but thats why people will relate because everyone has experienced a low point in their life. It differs from one person to another though, someone could be sad because they broke a nail; to them thats their lowest point we don’t know what they are feeling so we can’t judge, another person could witness a dozen suicide attempts from a loved one; that can be their lowest point, we can’t judge. I would like to have created a movie that shows you that sometimes you don’t get what you give and you don’t get treated the same way you treat people. Let me not give too much of the story away.
