My name is Ustena (pronounced you-steena).

I'm an artist and love teaching Arabic.

I'm Egyptian/American and enjoy sharing my language and culture with people - it was always my "fun fact" in school.

 I began experimenting with paint in my 3rd year at Cal State San Marcos and fell in love with everything about it. I haven't stopped since. One of my main goals with my art is that I have paintings on as many walls across the world as possible.

I love almost all soups but ramen is my favorite..or maybe clam chowder is? A well made lobster bisque is pretty up there too.

Enjoy your stay and please connect! :)
