Born and raised in Jouret El Ballout, Mount Lebanon, Lebanon. Cynthia holds a BS in Nutrition and Dietetics from the American University of Beirut, the Lebanese Nutrition and Dietetics Licensed from the Lebanese Ministry of Public Health and she is currently finishing her MS degree in Food Technology also at the American University of Beirut.
She is passionate about food and she loves working with food in all its aspects. For her, food is of a great social importance, giving all of us a national identity and a shared history. She aims in creating social value through improving the food services (whether within nutrition, dietetics, food science, cooking or any other related field) offered, even if it’s minimal; through addressing the importance of food in our social and economical conditions specifically within the Lebanese community, all throughout the food production and utilization cycle, from the farm to the fork. She believes that she has a mission in helping others improve their lives by transforming their eating habits, lifestyle and food appreciation. That’s why she has a food blog “Strawberry Blu” where she answers any question asked about food. Through her blog she was able to see where our community lies within this field, what it lacks and what it needs. Hopefully, she will be able to address as much problems as possible with the best accessible solutions, specifically targeting our upcoming young generations.
For now, her food experiences were quite magnificent and more is yet to come.
