I was born in Beirut, Lebanon on November 13th 1987. My father, Tony Mehanna is a known Lebanese actor, and my mother, Karen, took on a multitude of different roles, but she has always been an artist in her right as well. In 1991, my sister, Mandy, was born, and she has since grown into a great mother, a great singer, and now a content creator on instagram.
Back in 2013, I acquired an MFA in Screenwriting from Full Sail University.
After moving back to Lebanon that same year, I worked in the industry for while taking on random roles, but ultimately shifted to teaching at a University level which I enjoyed, until 2019.
Ever since I was in University (2006-2013), I was always interested in Spirituality and Theology. In fact one of my favorite electives at Uni was World Religions. Eventually I decided to learn how to read Tarot Cards, I went to Healing Circles, spoke to Pastors and other theologians… I knew deep down something within me had been slowly waking up and I needed guidance. Along this journey, I had many mentors, and today my heart is full of gratitude for each of them.
Stories that matter have always called to me, and I am planning on finally fully embodying my truth as a writer.
I always believed in a better tomorrow and a world filled with Hope and Faith and Unconditional Love — and writing stories that explore the balance between hardship & humor, the resilience of heart, & the importance & need for hope & faith is the best way that I can do my part in making this world a better place.
