Ranaa (pronounced Ray-nuh) also grew up as a “military brat” and as a result traveled quite a bit during her childhood. She was born in the United Kingdom and spent eight years of her childhood there in which she was able to spend time with her mother’s side of the family that is from the U.K. as well. She and her family also traveled and lived in Louisiana, Alabama, Texas and ended up in another desert called Arizona in which she was finally able to call home (for the first time in her life).
While in Arizona she attended Arizona State University where she graduated with a Bachelor’s in Science as she majored in Computer Information Systems. She currently works in the IS field which led her to meet her husband who is in IT.
Ranaa is obsessed with all things that involve home renovation, decor, and DIY. She enjoys the the creative and transformation process of working on home decor as it is an outlet for her to explore her creative side. She enjoys yoga, hanging out with her hubby and family, traveling, watching her favorite Youtubers, and reading and researching something. The inside joke amongst her family and friends is “just ask if Ranaa has heard about it (whatever the topic is). She researches everything!”
Ranaa became interested in blogging due to being inspired by a project she was assigned in middle school that always stayed very near and dear to her heart all these years. The project called for her to create a magazine and it ended up showing her that she had a passion of bringing content together in a creative and interesting way (bringing fresh ideas to concept, writing content, and then creating layout and design) in which folks of similar interest could read and relate to. (She actually still has the magazine her and her teammates created in her possession to this day!). After working on that project she always had a secret passion to create or be part of a magazine geared towards women who were underrepresented (and sometimes forgotten about) and bring forth topics that weren’t being discussed on popular platforms (of the time) in a honest and compelling way. As the emergence of blogging and vlogging took off she had kept the option of creating her own in the back of her mind until she happen to speak to a couple of friends about the idea which led her start her own blog. This is why she is passionate about the purpose of Real Women Talk 2 because conversation can open doors to new opportunities and it can save lives!
