Layla’s Mixed Sorts

About Me

My name is Layla Najia, 26 years old, a member of a big family: 5 sisters and 2 brothers. Im a Palestinian – Lebanese born in Spain 1 month before I was due: my parents were in Marbella for a vacation relaxing until i decided to pop out in a beautiful hot rainy night, which perhaps explains why I adore rainy weather. My family Lived in Kuwait until the Iraqis decided to invade it. It was a short 7 month war but it changed the direction of our lives forever. During the Gulf War we immigrated to Jordan, I was 6, and been living in Jordan ever since.

I’m always very passionate about the things that are important to me and those whom I care about.   I enjoy observing people, mingling, racing, rain, chocolate, vanilla latte, dancing, meeting inter-cultural people while traveling. I am obsessed with the Internet, Business news, reading, writing, blogs, the sun, the ocean, laughter, big dogs, steak, seafood, and sushi!!  I listen to all kinds of music, some are made in the mid sixties to early seventies like Dire Straits, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, that sort of thing. I also listen to music like Ben Fold, Cold Play, David Gray, Amos Lee, The Scorpions, Eric Clapton, Buddha Bar, Maria Mena. And of course, I always love a good dance/trance beat.

I used to read voraciously and collect books as well, but they were mainly stories and novels. Now I mainly read articles/blogs/discussion forums that interest me,  only in specific genres like business news, social issues, nutrition , travel stories and biographies.

I’m passionate about my profession(s), even though I don’t see myself fixed in a particular career path yet, but I know im passionate about communication,  public relations and advertising, and more and more my interests have moved towards education, I keep thinking of setting up my own idea of a school from scratch, one day.
