Introducing Reem! She’s brains and beauty, rolled up into one energetic ball of fun. Her two worlds couldn’t be more different, which is part of the reason we had to share her with you. She is one amazing MM woman! Read on to find out her best life advice and who she would have a dinner date with…

A BIG thank you to this beautiful Queen for taking the time to chat to us. You truly are a shining light in the world.

Hello Queen! For those that don’t know you, can you tell us who you are and what you do?

Hello! My name is Reem! I’m a medical scientist and I research colorectal cancer. I’m also a model. 

A scientist and a model, amazing! How do your two worlds intersect, if they do at all?! 

My two worlds don’t really intersect in terms of the work I do. However, it takes a lot of patience, energy and time to do a PhD. A lot of my non-scientific research skills have been applied to my modelling jobs. Being a black woman in both industries is VERY draining, especially in the modelling industry. So, I always try to be as professional as possible, focus on the job and do it to the best of my ability just like I would do in the lab. 

What's your sign baby?

I’m an Aquarius baby, can’t you tell??? 

What does a day look like in the life of Reem? 

Wake up at 6:30am, go to work, do a few experiments, if I’m teaching that day then I’ll do that, finish off my lab work and analyse data from the experiments. Sometimes I’ll have a half day for a modelling job, and I’ll take my laptop with me on set and work on my down time. At the end of my day when I get home, I’ll make dinner and unwind with my husband. I’ll usually do some more work from home, whether its science related or maybe I’m making some content for brands I’m working with. I like to be in bed by 9:30 so I can start all over again the next day. 

What motivates you to keep going – even on your toughest days? 

I want to be the best version of myself possible. So even on days when I don’t want to get up, I’ll force myself to accomplish small goals because I know that it will set me up to be the woman I want to be in 10 years’ time. So, you can say that I’m my biggest motivation - but I feel like that’s how it should be for everyone

Best advice from someone you admire in your life?

Put yourself first. 

If you could have a dinner date with anyone, past or present, who would it be and why?

My great grandfather, he was a world-renowned Arabic poet. I wish I could have met him. My elders have told me that we are very similar, and it would be nice to see where I get all of this energy from haha!

Apart from blessed genetics, dish the morning routine & skin secrets so we can be as glowing & flawless as you please!

My routine is so simple! I wash my face with cold water and a gentle face wash, followed by UV queen screen SPF and Biossance Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturiser. I do break out when I’m stressed… so a stress-free life is key!

If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would you go and why? 

I would go to my ancestral home in Sudan. I’ve always felt a connection to that place, and I feel like the older I get the more I appreciate my heritage and the beauty of my Nubian ancestors. 

We believe in manifesting... Any 2022 goals or dreams ​you want to say out loud?

I’m very superstitious so not at this moment!

Thank you for forever wearing our jewels like such a goddess! What are you most favourite MM styles?

The Aquarius Earrings!!!! They’re absolutely stunning - and this isn’t because of my Aquarius bias haha!

Reem Wears: Tijana Necklace, Rita Necklace, Francine February Ring and the Aquarius Earrings.
