What Hollywood gets WRONG about Arabs, The Middle East, and Arabic

  • Post category:Video

https://youtu.be/tHy_9MZHpQ8 I had no intention of making a video about this topic until 20 minutes before I started filming... No really. I'm serious. There I was, in front of the mirror finishing up my makeup, thinking "today I'll film my Q&A about relationships" -- backstory: there's a list of 12 questions that I had written for future guests about their thoughts on various aspects of dating/relationships...I was going to answer them for you this week,…

First Time in Lake Tahoe: Hiking Mt. Tallac

  • Post category:Video

https://youtu.be/5JblnzinSwQ My first trip to Lake Tahoe happened in mid-September, the same time as the fires in the Bay area (then again, I'm struggling to remember a summer/fall without fires in California...)! I was fortunate to have the opportunity to leave LA for a few days and stay in a house in South Lake Tahoe. That said, NO I didn't skip school (it's actually hard for me to do that, as a nerd) -- I am taking…

Ivy League to Community College: Back to School with Shannon

  • Post category:Video

https://youtu.be/aeY14PXdVv8 Hello and happy fall semester!  After graduating from Wharton in 2010, I never thought that I would go back to school. Honestly, I figured that anything I needed to know I could just 'google' and 'youtube.'  But less than 18 months after graduation, I was already back in class. It wasn't a formal "college" where you work toward a degree; they were Arabic classes at Eton Institute in Dubai. I was buying books (Al…

In this video we discuss our experiences with LDS rules about dating (yes, I finally…

I would wash my face twice a day and do all the things I thought you're supposed to do...but it didn't seem to help. Back then I didn't know about supplements and nutrition. I've come to understand that it all…
