Meet The Team
Founder of Nasma of New York
I’m very proud of my Lebanese heritage and want to shine a positive light on the Arab culture. Through Nasma, I want to introduce the beauty of the Arab World and positively impact today’s youth through education and acceptance.
My name is Zahraa which stands for beautiful, bright and brilliant. I’m a student of life, and I believe in the philosophy of spreading positivity, love, and kindness around like it’s confetti.
My name is Noor, it stands for the light that guides people. Publishing books for children make me believe in children’s strengths and guiding them to build strong personalities.
My name is Tala, it stands for talented, ambitious, loving, and affectionate person. Being a teacher means making a difference on the future of kids.
I long to pour all my love, knowledge, and determination into the little ones’ pots to water their abilities, strengthen their cultural roots, and bloom their love of knowledge for the language.
Maha is an Arabic name which means “wild deer” with reference to its eyes. I believe that learning another language empowers you to not only learn different words for the same things but to learn another way to think about things.
Marhaba! My name is Maria and I believe that learning a new language shouldn’t be a chore. People learn the most when they’re having fun in the process and I will always do my best to bring in humor, engaging storytelling, real life scenario re-enactments, role-playing games, and create a safe space environment in the classroom where everyone is free to express themselves and have a good time!
