In 1984, I was born in a big town called Hassa, east of Saudi Arabia. In 2002, I moved to the capital Riyadh to study at King Saud University. Currently, my life is divided between those two cities. My main motivation to do this is because I want to give a better view to the world about what's really happening in my country and the Middle East in general. I maintain two blogs: Saudi Jeans in English, and Yawmyat in Arabic. Recently, I co-founded Saudi Blogs, the first serious attempt to build the Saudi bloggers community.
