However, During the Summer 2016, she worked on the RISE production with the Old Vic new voices as Assistant Movement Director to Anna Morrissey This experience was incredible for her in different ways. Firstly, working with people of different ages, backgrounds and cultures reflected the rich and inspiring diversity of London. The collaboration between various elements of production was a great experience too. She worked with actors at Central School of Speech and Drama, Applied theatre and Classical Acting students. The aim of her work with them was to provide regular classes to build strength and stamina for stage performance, teaching and offering basic techniques for students to devise their own movement work. In 2015, she was selected to participate in Home Grown Theatre Project, a collaboration with the Kevin Spacey Foundation in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. Hence, she worked With Robert Wilson on two Operas, New-York. She danced with Sima Dance Company for two years and half between Fujairah and Beirut. Over time she has developed her skills and abilities in the field of Theatre by using other skills she had, for example, in graphic design and sports. She worked with orphaned and refugee children ages five years to 18 yeas old as a dance and drama teacher for 4 years. The children pushed her to work hard because she could see in their eyes passion and determination. she helped them to build their own personality and encouraged them on stage and in their own life. her aim was to raise their confidence though play and playfulness. she used devising through improvisation, as a method in her work, to help them express themselves on stage. Children make amazing stories from improvisation in their bodies. Watching them develop year by year made her feel happy and proud.
