It all started with a DREAM!
Posted on March 3, 2018
I was born in Jeddah Saudi Arabia!! Jeddah was so sunny and hot and I have some incredible memories!! As a way to cool down my parents took me to the swimming pool! I learnt to swim at the age of 4 and have medals from before I was 5! At the age of 8 I went to the capital of Saudi for a national competition (Junior Olympics) and I won a gold medal for 100m backstroke!! The dream was created!! I want a proper Olympic Gold Medal!!! This dream has been the drive to keep me going through all the training, all the difficult times with the diagnosis of Multiple sclerosis and with the new drive for Paralympic success!!! Dreams can last forever!!
