What can I say? My full name is Amira Mersit. I know you’re wondering where that awkward name originates from; it’s Arabic and Amira means princess. My dad is Libyan (controversial I know) and my mum is Scottish and they met one fateful night which then in turn ultimately created the miracle that is me. I actually know for a fact that I wasn’t actually created this particular night, because I’m actually a “test tube baby” or technically speaking; a person formed through the IVF process (nice interesting fact there)
Other “interesting” facts include the fact that 80% of the day, i’m playing with my hair (the other 20% i’m sleeping), I feel naked if I don’t have nail varnish on, my ideal snack is a cup of tea and buttered cream crackers, my vice is vanilla candles, I’m a very bad sleeper (it’s 6am and I’m writing this) and I’m one of those people who needs to spend a lot of time by myself otherwise it drives me crazy being surrounded by people and having to make an effort to converse all the time.
I find it hard to want to commit to a proper job because I hate the idea of being tied down somewhere, so instead I work within the nightclub industry which is more easy-going; doing PR’ing here and there, cash desk work and I’m currently working as a cocktail waitress serving the disgustingly rich champagne with a sparkler coming out the top whilst scantily dressed.
I’m originally from Edinburgh and aged 18 I moved to Aberdeen to study Fashion Management at Robert Gordon University which has been the best hasty decision of my life.
Music wise – I’m completely in love with Coldplay, Lana Del Rey, Foster The People, The Temper Trap, Two Door Cinema Club, The XX, Friendly Fires, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Naked and Famous (if that helps you to build a picture)
Another fact is that I completely believe in fate and karma and all that other shit, it helps me get through my day and I tell myself everyday to not make time for anyone who doesn’t have any time for me.
If you wish to contact me for a particular reason or just to say hello;
