Tourism Ambassador For TunisiaEdit

In Tunisia, Breidy has participated in campaigns to help promote the Tourism industry of the country. She has also been the face for the Tunisian travel agency Traveltodo since 2013.[12][13]

2015 controversyEdit

However, in 2015 her future involvement with the company and other tourism campaigns, was called into question over comments she made on a radio station where she admitted that she had previously prevented her friends from visiting Tunisia due to the current political instability of the country and security threats. Stating the following;

"They have nothing to do in Tunisia. We couldn't invite people into such unsafe conditions ... We couldn't put the lives of others in jeopardy"'[citation needed]

General management of Traveltodo responded by stating that her remarks were inappropriate, because they undermined the tourist reputation of Tunisia and its image on an international scale. As a result, the association of her image with Traveltodo would now be questioned.[14][15]

Since 2008, Breidy has been residing in Milan. She has also been studying economics and mathematics sciences part-time.[16] On July 16, 2017, she married Lebanese television presenter Wissam Breidy in Milan.
