ella: What obstacles did you face when practicing in Saudi Arabia?
Lama Younis: When I just graduated, I was the first woman to graduate with a forensic psychology degree in the Gulf Cooperation Council 👩🎓. But in Saudi Arabia, they refused to issue credentials for me to be able to practice and work for the government, I was only allowed to do so in the private sector. 💌 Link in the bio for the full interview 👆
