She has participated on the panel in the Vancouver 125 Poetry Conference; took part in the Heart of the City Festival, Grit Lit Live, and Our Voices. Ghia is a founding member of Intrepid Pens, a reading-writing group that began at the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre (DEWC) and operated out of W2 Media Cafe in Vancouver.

She attended elementary school in Lebanon, spent a school term in Greece (1976) and returned to Beirut for two more years, then relocated with her family to Cyprus in 1978 where she completed high school. In July 1986, she immigrated to Canada with her family, settling in Vancouver where she now lives.
