Mother was an English Language teacher in Iraq. Before my mom past away in 2004 I promised her I will be a doctor or something in the society. But because I need money I worked and I didn't care about my study. Instead of studying medicine, I pursued my Mother's passion and am studying English Literature. But this is not enough. I first rapper in the south. I have party's and interviews on T.V. This Summer, I traveled to Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) as apart of the Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP) While I was in the U.S. I was interviewed live on the radio about my musical talents. I believe that anything is possible. The sky is the limit.
