Hala was born on 1 March 1970 in Seattle, Washington, USA, to Syrian parents. Hala spent the majority of her early life in Paris, France. Hala started her journalism career as a reporter for the French magazine "La Voix du Nord."

In 1994, she joined the France 3 network. After a brief stint at France 3, she grabbed an opportunity to work for London-based Bloomberg TV. In 1995, Hala graduated from the Institut d'études politiques. In 1998, she joined CNN as an anchor for CNN International’s European breakfast show, ‘CNN Today.' She has never looked back since then. 

(Laughing). How did you know that? Even my colleague the producer of “Inside the Middle East” only found that out recently. I was born in Seattle to parents who are both originally from Aleppo in Syria. During my childhood, I moved with my family to Algeria where my father was working. After my parents separated, I moved to Paris to live with my mother until the end of my teens. I returned to the U.S. to attend university. I later traveled to Paris and then the U.S. As you can see, I have moved a lot. However, my roots are 100% Syrian.
