At twelve, she started her voice training with Maestro Salim Sahhab at the Cairo Opera House.
This was followed by her stint on Arabs Got Talent where she was awarded the Golden Falcon, and today, at the age of seventeen, studies in the High Arab Music Institute with the famous composer, Abdo Dagher.
