Industry: Media & Marketing

Designation: Writer

Country: Tunisia

Country of origin: Tunisia

Occupation: Writer

Age: 21

Still in her early 20s, Mezghanni has accomplished more in two decades than most people accomplish in a lifetime. Mezghanni’s first book was written while she was still just 10 years old and by the time she turned 14 she had published six short story compilations.

The Tunisian children’s book writer gained entry into the Guinness book of World Records at 12 years old as ‘The Youngest Writer in the World.’ And, if that was not enough to make most people feel like a serious underachiever, Mezhganni compounded the insult by two years later being crowned the ‘Youngest Most Prolific Writer in the World’ by the international publication.

Mezghanni is currently participating in a leadership-training programme in Stockholm, Sweden. She certainly knows about paving the way for others to follow.
