Aya Dhibette

Aya arrived at Mango Languages from Morocco, but no, she still hasn’t seen Casablanca. Aya loves traveling, animals, good food, good books, and good company. A perfect day would include all of those things at the same time, preferably with chilly, rainy weather, a warm drink, and some nice mellow music in the background. She speaks Arabic, French, Spanish, and is learning Turkish.
