Spotlight author: Rajaa Alsanea

Dr. Rajaa Alsanea comes from Saudi Arabia and attended King Saud University earning a Bachelor of Dental Surgery. In 2005, Dr. Alsanea graduated from the College of Dentistry, King Saud University, with her DDS.

From 2005-2006, Dr. Alsanea did residencies at the National Guard Hospital, King Faisal Specialist Hospital and the King Khalid University Hospital.Rajaa's interests lie in reading and writing novels.

She currently lives in Chicago where she is a dental graduate student. She aspires to win the Noble Prize for literature by 2015.
Her book "Girls of Riyadh" made a huge scandal in the Saudia community. Most people there didn't like it since it reveals some secrets about the Saudi's young generation. The book was translated into English after Rajaa and her publisher thought that the world out there might be intrested in this middle eastern "sex and the city" novel.

    I have read her book..and it was so cool!

    Sometimes, people love to talk about fantasy and leave the reality behind. Too bad, for the reality can bring up more interesting for us to think about and for us to see what's inside of us, through the words spoken as the reflection.

    Love her so much! She could be very great writer in the world, and of course, like she wanted....wining literary prize by 2015!

    Great job on introducing her!
