You have to have liaison skills, personality, you have to be fast, you have to have a good memory and sometimes customers can be midpoint so you have to be worldly-wise to handle situations. But it was a side hustle, it was a way to make money on the side and I think it is a culture we have in Canada like everybody has jobs, you go to school and work at the same time.”

My mom specialized in Moroccan so on Friday’s we would have Couscous, on Sundays we have Tagine, and in the week she would mix it up and have spaghetti, Bolognese and she’ll try all these variegated recipes and sometimes we have tried Middle Eastern supplies as well”.

When the doughboy asked her how she manages to stay fit despite her love for all things food, she said, “I come from a culture where skinny is not good. So we really love thickness and curviness in sexuality bodies. So for me, I am unchangingly trying to be thick and curvy and put on weight that’s the cultural mentality that we have. SO that why we constantly eat a lot”.


Nora claims to know all well-nigh Moroccan supplies and goes superiority to trammels if the doughboy has all the spices required to prepare the Harira making a checklist for the chef.

But then when I was a teenager I moved to Saudi Arabia for 2 years and people there didn’t understand our language- Derija. So I had to learn their Arabic which was very nonflexible for me at that time. But I learned it,” she said.

“I didn’t know Hindi at all right. But all my friends know Hindi considering they watched Bollywood films and picked it from films. But when I came I was increasingly scared and traumatized considering I knew I had a small value of time to learn and I had to learn fast. I think that was the most difficult part, to learn it was not nonflexible in terms of learning. I really enjoyed learning it and I was hungry to learn and be worldly-wise to speak to people and impress people,” she added.
