    in Entertainment

    Hi Everyone today's topic is my special guest Nadia Sahari's Career and her book Break Away How I Survived Abuse. Nadia Sahari was born in Beirut, Lebanon. She came to America at the age of two. She is 5'3" tall and petite in frame. Nadia is the eldest of eight children: five sisters and two brothers. She speaks fluent Lebanese. She has been an entrepreneur most of her life to help in the support of her two children. At times she worked three jobs a day, keeping a hectic pace which eventually led to a breakdown. But Ms. Sahari stood up again and continued the fight to make her dreams come true. She never gave up. She is a multi-tasker, always doing more than one thing at a time. She describes herself as like a little girl in a candy store. She can't take just one piece of candy, she wants to taste all the candy. Ms. Sahari has also been a guest panelist on the Oprah show. Oprah has requested a copy of Ms. Sahari's memoir. Currently, she is auditioning for commercials and film. Recently she has been cast as an Charlotte's Aunt for the movie Bandslam, and as a Reporter for the movie Corruption.
