I am from the third generation of the Jarmakani family born and bred in Lagos; my family is originally from the Levant. I was born on Ikoyi Island in Lagos and lived between Ikeja, Apapa, and Victoria Island for 15 years of my life. My last two years of high school were at Brummana High School in Lebanon. I've been in Toronto for 9 years now. I graduated from the University of Toronto with an H.B.Sc with Human Biology major, Sociology major, and a minor in Anthropology in November 2010.
