Originally from Lebanon and raised in Minnesota, Arij attended college at the University of Minnesota with a BA in Theatre & Political Science. During her time there, she deeply enjoyed embedding herself in the theatre community and co-founded a multi-disciplinary art space called 1419. Arij's ethnically ambiguous look allows her to settle into a wide variety of roles, which enable her to explore a range of characters that she enjoys connecting with. In addition to acting, Arij is a talented singer, improviser, and Arabic speaker, as well as earning her black belt in Tae Kwon Do. She is thrilled to be part of this incredible community of creatives!
