  The Performing Artist(TBA)  
Ghadir Mounib; Actress, Model, Host
An Egyptian born young lady, Ghadir Mounib, first took stage when she was 6 months old, in diapers, as the role of baby Jesus for a Christmas play performed at Club Med Egypt. She was raised in 4 different countries speaking 3 languages. Ghadir convinced her younger sister and their cousins to join creative minds to put on performances for their family in Egypt every New Years' eve at their Grandparents' home in Cairo. The yearly shows that included skits, songs, and dances rounded up 5 generations of Mounibs in attendance. After moving to San Diego in 2008, and while perusing her Masters in Architecture, Ghadir made a major shift from her seemingly unending scholastic endeavors to film; acting and performing where always part of her existence. Her natural skills got her accepted to the highly prestigious performing arts school in England L.A.M.D.A. She gained experience in dramatic and musical theater at the University of New Mexico, and worked as a runway model for several years in San Diego. Before long, her work was known among her peers in the San Diego Film community. She strives to make important movies that will be part of history.
