Arab American Influencer and Real Estate Agent Utilizes her Platform to Promote a Healthy Lifestyle 

Thuraya Altai aims to spread self-love and body positivity through her YouTube channel and Instagram account.

Thuraya Altai is an Arab American influencer who was born in Iraq, but currently resides in Texas. During her childhood, she was incredibly close with her family in Iraq, but after moving to the U.S., it was difficult for her to be away from her support system as well as maintain social connections. As a result, she began meeting people from various backgrounds and expanded her knowledge of different cultures. These interactions shaped her to be open-minded and flexible, especially when confronted with changes and new ideologies. Altai is fluent in Arabic and English, as well as some Spanish. Her experiences in the U.S. molded her perspective, and she learned that being different is not wrong, it’s just different.

Thuraya is a Youtuber with over 350,000 subscribers, and she is actively posting one video per week. Her channel aims to encourage ways to live a healthy lifestyle which includes self-care tips and workout routines. She utilizes her platform to promote the importance of self-love and acceptance, as well as providing fashion and style inspiration on her Instagram. 

Altai is currently a model, lifestyle influencer, and real estate agent who also specializes in discussing real estate trends and investing. She is a member of the Houston Association of REALTORS®, and is knowledgeable in the processes of buying, selling, and renting properties. She aids her clients in the process of finding the right property, pricing, and negotiations to provide her clients with the most optimal experience when finding their forever homes. 

Altai shares, Being real and transparent is key, but being different and not being afraid to show it is what makes you stand out.”
