Hi, I’m Thoraya. You may know me from YouTube or social media where I interact with and share stories of strangers. 95% of my daily interactions begin with an introduction, so if you don’t know me, bear with me while I piece together yet another one. I spend my life meeting strangers and engaging them in intimate conversations with me, and sometimes even with one another. In this new podcast, I share these strangers with you, an audience of other strangers, in hopes that one day we won’t feel so “strange” to one another anymore. So, nice to meet you. I’m Thoraya and welcome to “Hey, Stranger!"

A diamond in the rough.

Thoraya is such an authentic person. She speaks from the heart and really wants to understand people. I highly recommend her and her content - you can find her on YouTube as well at Thoraya Maronesy. You won’t regret it! The way she can connect with people is more than moving - and I’m thankful to be able to see her kindness radiate as she speaks to people going through hard times or is just comfortable with what they want to share with an open ear.
Love, love, love her.

Love the kindness

Loved the podcast it was very interesting and I think we can learn a lot from these strangers story’s :). My stranger story was when I was about 10 this lady that sat next to me that I recognised from somewhere so we had a conversation. We ended up meeting a few times after and I learned that she was very spiritual. I realised a lot about spirituality thanks to her which I am very grateful for because it reinforced the feelings I had. Love your YouTube channel too and I hope this podcast goes far because it deserves to! :D
