Two Saudis Win Creativity for a Cause

The beautiful campaign for creativity for a cause just ended and two very creative Saudi ladies won it: Soraya Darwish and Manar Alomayri. The campaign was a contest open to creative ideas from females living in the gulf region. The winners received a money prize to get their creative business ideas off the ground. 

Soraya's idea is about bringing arts and crafts to the ladies of Jeddah and Manar's idea is about starting an Arabic audio book library online to encourage more people to read and be enlightened. 

The mentors ( Shahd Thani, Sara Albalooshi and Hadeel H) and I, helped the shortlisted finalists a little bit and talked to them during the mentoring session. It was such a pleasure to take part of their creative growth. Being around such productive and willing ladies was very inspiring and empowering. 

Thankful to Philadelphia Arabia for this wonderful opportunity!
