Ghada Al Subaie graduated from Brown University 

She graduated in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Literature. That’s pretty swell. Apart from that, she received her masters in the London School of Economics (LSE) prior to working for the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA) from 2010 to 2017. 

Female representation in the Kingdom and its parliament has been rising in the last 15 years, according to the Huffington PostThe representation has even reached 13% points, beating out Pacific countries in the last year. 

Pretty groundbreaking for women in the region.

You make us proud, Ghada!
