Designation: TV presenter
Occupation: TV presenter
Dr Fawzieh Al Dorai has been dubbed the Middle
East’s answer to talk show host Oprah Winfrey, only with better qualifications
- and it’s not hard to see why.
The Kuwaiti psychologist, who has a background in sex education,
is the face of one of the region’s most popular talk shows, Seerat El Hob (The Love
Story). The prime time show tackles a whole host of real life relationship issues
and has been widely credited with raising awareness of previously taboo subjects.
Popular debates often include issues of love and marriage. In a traditionally conservative
region, her frank style has won her legions of fans across the Arab world.
Al Dorai has written more than fourteen books and is a regular
contributor to local publications.
