Welcome everybody. I’m Fadi, good to meet
you. Yeah, you’re right. Fadi isn’t a typical
English name. That’s because my family is from
Lebanon. I was born there too, but I’ve lived in
London ever since I was a kid. Now I think of
myself as being both, Lebanese and English.
Mostly, I’m a Londoner. London is full of people
from all over the world so I fit in perfectly here.
What do I do? Well, ideally, I mean, if the world
was perfect, I wouldn’t do very much at all. Play
football… watch TV… play video games… hang
out with my friends. But unfortunately the world
isn’t perfect so I have to work. I work for our
family business. We’re suppliers to restaurants,
so we import foods from different parts of the
world, the Mediterranean and Middle East
mostly, and then sell them on to restaurants. It’s
ok, not my ideal job but, well it’s the family
business so I have to be part of it really.
I get to travel quite a bit for my job too, which is
ok. I wouldn’t like to be sitting in an office all
I love London like I said, there’s loads going on,
people from everywhere, even if the weather
here is lousy. I’m 24 now. My mother keeps on
asking me when I’m going to get married. But
it’s not going to happen for a few years yet. I
think 24 is way too young to marry and besides,
there are too many beautiful girls in this city,
even if I’m not going out with any of them at the
What else, er… not much really. I like nice
clothes, night clubs, Arsenal football club, oh
and hanging out with the people at Tony’s Café.
