Ghada was born in the US but then returned with her family to Saudi Arabia during her school years and her father insisted that all his children study in international schools in the Kingdom.
She then moved back to the US to pursue her higher education and build her career.
Ghada states that she was lucky to grow up in a family and with a father who never said no to her on the basis that she is a girl and has always been supportive of her career and choices.
The woman who changed the world.
