She speaks Aramaic and writes in Arabic and English: she has published four collections in Arabic and one lyrical, multi-genre text, The Diary of a Wave Outside the Sea. In 2001, she was awarded the UN Human Rights Award for Freedom of Writing. She has been a director of the Iraqi American Centre and currently lives in the US.
