Saudi is one of the most mysterious countries EVER. There’s a huge question mark on it. Not only is Saudi unknown to the Western countries, but also it’s anonymous to the Eastern ones as well. It’s like a blank spot on the map. The more I meet new people, the more I discover how unknown my country is. Sometimes I even get asked; “where is that?” I just say do you know where Bahrain or Dubai is? And OF COURSE they do, and I just say it’s by there. It’s so funny how a tiny island like Bahrain is more known than Saudi.
You see that peninsula on the right? That's Saudi. No one really know what goes on in Saudi and how people function.
There are a lot of misconceptions about it; some are very offensive and others are hilarious. I decided to write this blog section Saudi Stories to sum up all what I know. Plus, mom keeps pressuring me to write, so here it is!
I was born and raised in Saudi for 17 years by Saudi parents in the most typical Saudi city. After I graduated from high school, I got a scholarship to the United States to continue my further education. Few years later, I came to the UK, and here I am blogging from London.
