She obtained a Bachelor’s degree from the Higher Institute of Dramatic Arts, and entered the world of art after the death of her mother, where she was discovered by director Nour Al-Demerdash, and presented her through the series The Promised Night in 1976. She and director Raafat Al-Mihi formed a successful duo and presented a series of the most important films in her artistic career.
