My name is Duha Dallah; I am 19 years old and currently attending university where I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Speech Language Pathology and Audiology. I’m originally from Syria, but I was born and raised in the heart of Dallas Texas. I love spending time with family and friends and hold every memory made with them close to my heart, especially because both my sisters that I love dearly got married and moved away. I am seeking to inspire others with my love for fashion via my instagram account @styledbyduha.
Simple and classy my closet mainly consists of neutral colors, I don’t normally wear too much color or patterns, which isn’t so good, it makes me look old lol. I love following the latest trends, however, I always add a touch of me to everything I wear.
What Mantra That You Believe in?
I constantly remind myself of one of my favourite verses from the Quran 2:186 “ And if my servants ask about me, behold I am near; I respond to the call of Him who calls..”
Working as a pharmacy technician is obviously not my forever job. Since my degree is in Speech Pathology I plan to obtain my Masters and become a Speech Therapist. I am currently shadowing one at the hospital (when I’m not at school and not working). Basically all this started when my sisters moved away and I got bored!
I recently applied as a pharmacy technician when I saw an opening, however, now that I am working as one I love it so much that I am actually considering switching my major (but of course I’m too lazy to go through that process).
What makes you smile the most?
Seeing my mom happy.
Follow Her Social Media
I mostly use instagram and snapchat.
Well, I obviously have a love for fashion, which you all know from my instagram page, however, I am also really into cooking and eating healthy and plan to start featuring my cooking and share recipes with you guys on my snapchat.
Her Mom’s beauty advice
My mom always advises me and gives me tips on how to dress and of course always lets me know when my outfit is not on point, she’s my best friend. My mom is the queen of fashion herself.
How she got started in make-up
Being the youngest of 3 girls, I would always look up to my older sister (yall can probably tell I love my sisters so much, I keep talking about them haha) they’re both a few years older than me, so watching them apply makeup on was amusing to me and soon after, I began doing the same. My sisters and I literally always try new makeup products on each other when were together! We always look like were going to prom every night J And as for my fashion, my sister Rana would always facetime me when she’s at the mall and ask me if certain clothes go together and she would constantly tell me to start a fashion page and I would just ignore her, I guess I was too scared to start, but look at me now! Thanks to her <3
