Sarah Joe Chamoun is a Lebanese-American social media personality, webcam model, and a former pornographic actress. You might recognize her by her stage name, Mia Khalifa, one of the most famous names in porn out there, and the most viewed pornstar on the popular website pornhub for two years in a row. She gained the global limelight and at the same time became a controversial figure in the Middle East when she performed in a pornographic video wearing a hijab, a traditional Muslim dress.
Mia was born on February 10, 1993, in Beirut, and is currently 27 years old. She is married to Robert Sandberg. Mia is an ex-pornstar and is currently a media personality and a webcam model. She is 5’2” in height and also used to operate under the name Mia Callista.
Early Life of Mia Khalifa
Mia’s family moved to the States in 2001 in the wake of the South Lebanon Conflict. She was raised in a very conservative catholic family, although she isn’t a catholic herself anymore. Her family settled in Montgomery County, Maryland, in the States, and Mia attended Northwest High School in Maryland where she was the victim of bullying due to her comparatively darker skin complex. The bullying only got worse after the September 11 tragedy. Mia graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a BA in History. She used to support herself by bartending and working as a model.

After posting a couple of NSFW video clips she made with her ex-husband on a subreddit in early 2014, Mia’s professional career in the porn industry began that same year in October. She gained popularity after starring in a BangBros scene where she performed a threesome in wearing hijab along with actors Sean Lawless and Julianna Vega. It received mixed reactions. While some people loved it, others started sending her death threats and abusive mail since they believed the video was intended to hurt Muslim sentiment. Religious conflict aside, that video alone made her the most searched performer on Pornhub. That same year Pornhub announced her as their number 1 ranked model.
Mia’s fame only grew from then on, she became one of the most popular pornstars out there, being the most searched for on multiple websites for quite a few years. She even ended up having a song dedicated to her.
She left the porn industry in 2015, claiming she worked in the porn industry for only three months before the negativity got to her and she decided to leave and switch to a more normal profession. Since then she has sued her former employer BangBros on grounds of being underpaid. She currently is a strong media influencer and runs her own site where she performs as a webcam model.
