I teach and study bellydance and body awareness and have a background in biology and music. I spend my days dancing around students, developing and implementing marketing strategies, improving people's postures, editing videos, watching insects and plants closely, creating content, discovering new tunes to choreograph to and positioning my website in google.
I have collaborated with renowned organizations working with refugees, domestic violence and sexual abuse survivors. As such, I know about the importance of a social and mutual support network and this is why I believe in the power of We-Guild.
I'm also the soul and force behind Dancepandemic, a place to spread the joy of bellydance.
My name is Zahida Palma and I hate writing about myself in third person.
