Aimée Dassa KligmanSephardic Jewish woman born in Egypt, living in NYC 1962. Through Women's Lens, I have made amazing re-connections with family on my father's side. Though most of my formal schooling was in English, French is still my native language and the one that inhabits most of my dreams. Both my parents died quite young of cancer and cardiac disease. I was my own mother, I suppose. I married a wonderful man, an Ashkenazi Jew, and together we created a jewel of a daughter, Michele Victoria. Though I am now divorced, I love to write, love to travel, and to read. Blogging is a natural. I've had my own paper business for 12 years and had a hiatus for longer than I care to talk about. I am now in my second career, in an industry I have grown to love, entertainment. We do visas for the famous and not so famous. Since I last wrote this description, much has happened. I have become a grandmother to my daughter's precious twins. I've been to Morocco, and Sao Paulo and I may finally make it back to Alexandria, Egypt. I've met more incredible people along the way. Thank you Amir Ramses for your documentary "Jews of Egypt".
I survived the death of both my parents at an early age. I survived depression. I founded my own company and was making a 6 figure salary in the late 1980's. I am a crossword puzzle fanatic, an expert on the Middle East, and speak several languages fluently. I live alone and love it, most of the time.
