Personal Quote:

If no one's dead, it's not grave.


M'saada was a contestant on Pyramid in January, 2003. The celebrity panel included Gary Valentine (from King of Queens) and Lisa Ann Walter (from Breaking News). She won the first game and earned $400 in the winners' circle. Host Donny Osmond commented that he really liked her name, which she explained is a Swahili word meaning "help". See more »
