After being born in Damascus, Ailabouni moved to Austria when she was two years old and grew up in Amstetten and Schörfling am Attersee, where she went to school. She played the role of Juliet in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet in the school's drama group. She has two brothers. Ailabouni plays basketball and played in the Austrian U16 team.
Germany's Next Topmodel
After applying towards an open casting call in Munich Ailabouni managed to make the top 18 and started to dominate the competition by winning several castings. However due to her shy personality the judges questioned her limelight ability and saw her struggeling several time when she was required to perform out of her comfort zone. Yet she became the first non-German top 3 finalist of Germany's Next Topmodel (although former winner Sara Nuru was of Ethiopian heritage she owns the German citizenship) and managed to win beating fellow-contestants Hanna Bohnekamp and Laura Weyel on a live final held in June 2011. She then appeared on the cover of the German Cosmopolitan in July 2010 and in a commercial for Venus Breeze, a job she won on the show.
Withdrawal from ONEeins contract
Like her predecessor Sara Nuru, Ailabouni did not win a contract with a known modeling agency. She was managed by Günther Klums Management ONEeins but decided barely after a year to breach out from the contract due to her feeling that she was given only mediocre, no modelling related work. It marked the first time a winner of the show sued her way out of the contract and obligations not even one year after her victory. Ailabouni was not invited to the final of Germany's Next Topmodel, Cycle 6, also a first on the show while several ProSieben-related magazines referred to Sara Nuru as "last years winner" given she was working as a backstage host.
Ailabouni moved to Paris where she was taken under contract by PARS, the modelling agency of Peyman Amin who was a judge on GNTM but left before her participation. She also managed to get signed with other modeling agencies, Eskimo Models, City Models in Paris, Fashionmodel in Milan and Elite Model Management in London.
