MOST OF YOU KNOW @FLYWITHHAIFA VERY WELL.
Haifa Beseisso is a travel blogger from the Middle East. With 460,000 Instagram followers and almost 720,000 YouTube subscribers, she has emerged as a strong voice among global influencers. She is winning our hearts and minds with her statement-making videos as well as entertaining posts showcasing magnificent places in the world.
Her determined personality brought her big success in her early 20s… After graduating from the American University Dubai’s Digital Production and Storytelling program, she started working for a TV show that focuses on travelling. Her dream was to be on camera, but she was told that she couldn’t.
To pursue her dreams and to do what makes her happy, she did the unexpected… “I believe there are no limits to our dreams. And to put that theory to the test, I decided to quit my job and follow my dreams. Like many of you, traveling the world is one of those dreams! So, I started my YouTube channel and made my own travel show.”
In her opinion, she owes her success to her “inner curious kid who always wants to learn.” She satisfies her curiosity by meeting with new people and discovering new places. During her journeys, the social media influencer became an ambassador for building bridges between cultures and fighting racism worldwide, and not just racism aimed towards the Middle East.
Haifa is one of the 50 ambassadors of YouTube’s Creators for Change program. It’s an initiative that supports vloggers who are tackling social issues and promoting awareness and empathy on their channels. Her video, “Stereotype World: The Middle East Speaks Up”, was viewed more than 2.2 million times and made a tremendous impact.
It’s our pleasure to introduce you to Haifa Beseisso, a globe-trotter with a message of kindness, diversity and humanism.
