2017 was not an ordinary year. It had its ups and downs, yet, something incredible happened in 2017. Saudi Arabia, which is known for its strict Muslim rules not allowing women to live as they want to, finally agreed to let women drive! It definitely was a great step in the right direction for the country.

It was not easy to make this happen, but Saudi Arabia’s women came all together and fought for their rights. Once more I realised how powerful women are if they are united and determined.
