Soha Aboul Farag rose to prominence in 2006 when she was chosen
as the first Saudi woman to participate in a US State Department program that seeks
to offer an opportunity for women leaders to interact with Fortune 500 companies
and met with high profile White House and US officials as part of the “International
Women Leaders Mentoring Partnership”.

Aboul Farag said she believes “there are many success stories
of women here and the trend has been to support women in financing, regulations,
training and exposure. What we need is to break the ice of fear, to be strong and
aggressive.”
