My memoir, Daring to Drive: A Saudi Woman’s Awakening, is finally going to be spotted on shelves in bookstores and libraries. A lifelong aspiration! I have always wanted to write my story. I have kept all my diaries and my childhood books, notes, sketch books, etc. I knew deep inside that one day I will write (the book of my life). It’s listed on my bucket list too. But I wasn’t sure why would anyone read my story. Why would a publisher be interested in (the book of my “insignificant” life). But there was always part of me knowing that such day will come. On May 19th, 2011, I posted a video of me driving in the last country on earth where women are still considered minors from crib to coffin. And that video changed everything. My “insignificant” and humble story became world’s news! And little I knew that my own world, will never be the same again.
