Shaikha, Daughter of Abdulaziz Al Zahim & Sabeeka Al Sager, brought up in Qibla, Kuwait.
One of the first women who studied in the UK while women were struggling behind closed doors and ignorance. She came back as a journalist, established different magazines for kids, one noted would be called “Yasmeen & Dana”. She taught in school and had many participations on Radio, TV and Print mania.
