Who Is Raneem?

I am a Syrian-American content creator, writer, editor, traveler, occasional singer, and all-around extraordinaire. I have written on travel, food, and culture for the likes of GoOverseas, GoAbroad, and Biography.com. I create engaging, SEO-friendly content from a respectful and inclusive perspective, suited to our digital age.

In addition to writing and editing, I also create TikTok content for myself (@meanraneem, 24.1k followers) and global brands such as Tinder. Some of my videos have upwards of 1 million views!

I speak English, Spanish, Arabic, and some French

Additional skills: Google Analytics, Instagram, fact-checking, CMS, Canva, CMoS, AP Style, Microsoft Office, Google Docs — and if there’s something I don’t know how to do, you can bet I’ll do the research to figure it out.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Are you actually mean?

Not at all! “Meen” (مين ) is how you ask “who is…?” in Syrian Arabic. So the question is, who is Raneem?

I guess you came to the right place to find out.
