Lama is an English language and literature graduate from the Islamic University of Gaza. She grew up in Mississauga, Canada, before her family moved back to Gaza. Lama now is pursuing her master's degree in the United Kingdom.
Lama loves to spend her free time reading, writing, watching movies and Youtube videos, and spoiling her cat. She especially loves to write short stories. Her ultimate goals after she graduates is to travel abroad to get her master's degree and PhD, then become an author or college professor – or both! Lama also wants to start a publishing house in Gaza so "all the creative and talented writers there can find a place to support their dreams, because right now I can't find anywhere that will help me pursue mine."
