Lean In Jeddah!

To say the book Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg changed my life would not be an exaggeration. So it's no wonder that I had a need to find a Lean In Cirlce ASAP. There wasn't one, so in September 2016 I created my own: Lean In Circle Jeddah.


It has been so fulfilling to meet on a monthly basis with like-minded women who are pursuing a life of balance while chasing their dreams. I'm also looking for people to help me organize casual and fun meetups, please do contact me if that's you!

Here are also some other books that have inspired me in my pursuit of leadership:
