Saida’s content on social media, such as Tiktok (@Jadorebeautyy), is now more about her travel adventures than her makeup. Saida spent the summer of 2021 travelling in the Middle East, visiting three cities in Turkey and exploring the country of Jordan. As a result, several of her videos began circulating and going viral during that time, giving her a new following of 12.7k.
Saida finds the most rewarding aspect of travelling to be meeting people from all around the world. She has met some incredible individuals abroad and had great conversations. Saida shares that she has changed the way she lives after having those meaningful conversations. Saida also recently volunteered in South Africa for over a month. While working alongside some of the most knowledgeable people, she gained insight and knowledge about the endangered animals in the area.
Though Saida enjoys being in front of the camera, her true passion is makeup. Therefore, Saida tends to be backstage more often prepping models. Saida has been taking part in a bridal expo, a show with RAW artists in Calgary for the last few years. Saida, however, tends to work more freelance these days. Saida is always open to working with talented individuals and organizations. A few exciting things are in store for Saida in the upcoming months, and she cannot wait to share them with you. Stay tuned to her social media platforms for more information!
