As a clinical psychologist, TV presenter, media specialist and member of the protection committee in the Saudi Ministry of Health, Samira Khalid Al-Ghamdi wears several hats.
A single mother with three children — 26-year-old Abdul Malik who is an economics major, 23-year-old Jummar, a dentistry graduate; and 19-year-old Jana who is studying pharmacology — Al-Ghamdi says her main goal in life is to see that every child gets their right to a safe and secure home and a healthy environment.
As the founder and chairman of Hemaya — Saudi Arabia’s first anti-bullying foundation — she does her bit by dedicating her free time to community service and charitable foundations, specifically those dealing with children and family abuse.
This is when she is not presenting news on several TV channels in Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
Her hobbies include traveling and exploring different countries, something that resulted from her love for history, which she considers to be the foundation of every culture.
She says her only dream now is to live a simple life — one that is devoid of technology — on a farm with her three Pomeranian house dogs.
