My name is Issam Akel(Sam), I’m 42 years old Jordanian National with Palestinian Origins born in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Mind-Blowing performance by this 9-year-old girl.

Inspired by “Due Date” & “Southpaw”, I challenged this kid to the maximum, that some said I was actually very tough & rude with her in the part. I told Livi that I’ll make her so uncomfortable so to see how she’ll perform when she’s pushed to her limits. Really impressive, check out her profile:

Healthy Eating Obsession

On a Personal Note: Had a front-row experience with a family member suffering from the same(near death) for many years. The person becomes so discreet about it but in complete denial. We only found out years later; very rough times mentally, medically & psychologically for all relatives of that sick member.

This obsessive self-destructive behaviour when one becomes obsessed with their body & dieting is only downhill from here: Overtraining, Calorie Count, Food Deprivation, Anger, Frustration, Lost of Joy, Massive Weight Loss, Anxiety & much more, all of which could lead to Depression & terrible Medical Conditions. One is normally in denial or is extremely discreet about their habits.
