Before getting married, Waliya spent years trying it all – matrimonial events, websites, matchmakers and the good ol’ biodata system. She knows first hand what singles are going through and how to navigate this crazy world of finding love. And as a relative newlywed, she’s become a student of marriage. Waliya is a proud Texan, but her career has taken her all over the country, building a vast network of friends, family and acquaintances. She lives in Raleigh, NC where she’s the Emmy award winning Executive Producer of WRAL News and actively matchmaking for BeyondChai.
