Meet rana aka ‘fairy dust’.
loud. cheerful. excited. free
A flowground partner and kids’ hooping instructor.
Words that describe this woodland elf, in love with happiness, are simple, energized, and carefree. On a mission to spread her passion for individuality and self-expression to the world around her through everything she does and shares.
A designer who is meticulous in her approach to colours (the last 6 months have seen her change her hair colour 9 times, after 8 years of growing it as a natural brunette to donate it), in her dedication to experimentation (an interior design project manager with a penchant for the extraordinary through the mundane), and her love of people, she is a catalyst in everything she gets involved in.
Peter Pan would be envious: a lady from Toronto, her family is part Italian, part Lebanese, part Palestinian, and completely Canadian. She is one who sprinkles bits of herself everywhere she goes, always sharing her infectious energy with those around her, making an effort to put smiles on people’s faces.
Hooping is a recent love affair but, as with everything about her, she threw herself into it and it is now a staple in her daily routine: she’s the girl with the hoops in her car, ready to bring them out to a gathering, at a house, a park, the beach, a club; anytime anyone even hints at the possibility of her being able to flow, she jumps on it.
It is exactly her bubbly personality that makes her such a force of nature. A voice of friendship with kids, a mentor they can look up to, relate to, and trust, woman who bounces around like a child but knows when to pause and reflect.
Her professional life has taught her how to work around problems and an empath who relates to the people around her and provides an understanding, comfortable, safe haven for them to learn, grow, and self-express.
In short, she’s Fairy Dust. A kid and an adult, somebody who balances her fluidity well between those who rely on her and those she so passionately enjoys teaching, Rana is our kids’ hooping instructor, one who will forever be young.
