DDe’s interest in the media started at an early age, she found joy in entertaining others and studying languages. She learned Arabic when she moved to Jordan from Ukraine but a year later DDe left to United Arab Emirates where she lived in 4 different cities in a span of 8 years. Her interest in Journalism sparked and she developed her professional skills by interviewing local talents, writing articles and studying graphic design.
In 2012, DDe moved to Kurdistan-Iraq where she gained experience by stage hosting while attending school. This led to her getting an offer from Babylon which she accepted after graduation. This was her inspiration to later pursue a degree in Broadcast Journalism in Toronto, Canada.
