Marhaba brings you weekly podcasts by Doha Heat, a communal podcast set up by Ginger Camel Media. 

Doha Heat is for every type of individual who currently calls Qatar home, has in the past, or may one day. The interviews are very relaxed and seek to be honest conversations, like the type you might have with a friend over coffee/tea/Karak.

When you think of lifestyle bloggers, you probably don’t think of someone who wears a veil. Challenging these stereotypes on an everyday basis is Khansa, founder of Creativity with Kay. She’s a lifestyle, food, and travel blogger based in Doha.

Listen to this episode to hear about how she confronted the scepticism around her persona and became one of Qatar’s biggest influencers.
