Najiba was born on September 4, 1981 in the Netherlands, which makes her 27 years old and Dutch. She was also, as a daughter of first generation Moroccan immigrants, partly raised in Morocco, which makes her Moroccan- Dutch (in the statistics).
Najiba studied International Business at Tilburg University and is now a management trainee/ communication coordinator at TNT. Hip-hop lyrics inspired her to start writing at the age of 14 and she has been writing ever since. Last year, Najiba co-wrote a children’s book and won the Dutch poetry slam nationals. She can go on for ages about good books, good movies and good food.
