- Omar Bin Abdulazizpresent
Elissa was born in Deir al-Ahmar and raised in Bekaa Valley, a land known for its fertile landscape and infamous history. At the tender age of 10, Elissa began participating in social events and had a role in the kids' festival at Mont la Salle, which was hosted by Sandy Oshakji. As she grew up, her passion developed and she grew more and more involved in the art scene by acting in theater plays, namely with well-known songwriter Wassim Tabbara and later, with the "Théâtre de 10 Heures". Having studied Political Science at the Lebanese University, she had a natural knack for her first play's tendency for political critique, and her talent, though in its infancy, left a lasting impressing on that initial audience.
