Saudi Heroes

These are all great human beings who help humankind.

Dr. Ghazi Al Gosaibi’s passing got me thinking. There are certain people in every generation and era that make a person honored to have lived in their time. People who courageously push a nation forward even when the majority of their countrymen are standing still or worse pushing back. These people are rarely appreciated in their lifetime and their initiations only truly valued long after they are lost.

Besides Dr. Ghazi Al Gosaibi, these are today’s people who my grandchildren and great grandchildren will celebrate and honor, people who will be included in history books and classroom discussions. My future Saudi Arabia will be built on the foundation that they are laying. I can’t predict the future, but I can dream.

I'm a woman with a keen interest in a wide range of topics including women's issues; animal rights issues; humanitarian issues and political movements, such as the events currently sweeping the Middle East. I am an avid reader and collector of books, mainly about travelers of the 18th and 19th centuries. I have enormous curiosity about other people and relish hearing about lives and opinions of people from all over the world. I’m the author of the PRINCESS series, GROWING UP BIN LADEN, MAYADA DAUGHTER OF IRAQ, FOR THE LOVE OF A SON, and more. Over the past few years the princess and I have met and worked together to bring out a 4th, 5th and 6th book. The 4th is titled: PRINCESS, MORE TEARS TO CRY while the 5th is titled: PRINCESS, SECRETS TO SHARE. The 6th, titled PRINCESS, STEPPING OUT OF THE SHADOWS is to be released in October 2018. I am currently working on my memoirs. Details to be released soon. You can visit my website ( or check out my books on Amazon for more info.

    Oh ! I just finished Princess. Truly heart wrenching. I wish there were something I could do. The woman named Alyce who helped the Afghan refugee Farrah Amedi said that that book inspired her, so I wanted to read it. What, oh what can any of us do to help at all?

      Thanks, Nellda — I appreciate your note. I’m happy that the books about Princess Sultana inspire many people the world over. I always tell people that we can help by never ever ignoring a woman or girl in need — to reach out and help — and, by being educated and helping in that manner, also. If we take care of yourselves with education and financial security, then we can help other women in need.
      Thanks, so much! Jean Sasson
