All of us have those times that get lost in spite of us, and often we can’t do anything only just wait, especially since most of us are alone at these time. No one is with us, but there is a wonderful friend improves your mood you can listen to him and gives you his time for free !!
It’s a podcast
This is the main thing Lubna talk about it , her story with her successful podcast .
Lubna has a charming voice that can attract you and influence you , I listened to her while I was went to university Since my house is about a hour away from the university .
Actually what I was thinking was true ,I thought she was a person who loved helping others and helping them to reach success as she could ,while she was talking I was very proud of her because she was a little girl and she was able overcome the difficulties of life .
During this hour Lubna talked about her life story from the zero and how she managed to reach her dream and develop her skills. I admit that I was very touched and inspired her story to continue the quest to reach my dream , She began to talk about her father’s support for her and how he was give her every Friday a book and ask her to read it and then he ask about what she has benefited from this book and I think that this was the basis for its success and what it is now, as they say “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
She then talked about her beginning in writing articles in the newspapers and how everyone thought she was a writer with a high level of education while she was just 14 years old but reading books gives a person a mind and culture more than his age and this what she was doing and This is one of her articles in Al Jazeera newspaper at 23/8/2010 it was before 8 years .
You can read the full article here : http://www.al-jazirah.com/2010/20100823/ar7.htm
She also told us about how Dr. Ghazi al-Gosaibi inspired her when he was influenced by what she wrote in her articles and he asked to speak with her personally and he was at that time the minister of labor and he gave her advice saying:
“Before you write a page, read a hundred pages”
At that time I felt her feeling and happiness because I felt the same feelings and happiness when I met Prince Khalid bin Faisal and he was and still someone who inspire me a lot .
You can hear the whole story through this episode of Podcast
Lubna talked about how she started to create her own podcast, And how she noticed the lack of a podcast in the Arab world She said “I did not expect the turnout from the Arab world but I was surprised when they were impressed with what they heard in the first episode and became eager for the next episode”
That’s what I liked about her personality and inspired me Because when you are the first and the leading in an area, it shows your confidence in yourself and the strength of your personality and how you look for the better for your community.
Through my previous listening to what she is offering in her podcast ‘Abjoura‘, I liked that she talks about social issues with a simple nature that can reach all people of different classes and cultures
We were surprised when she told us she was preparing for the episode for one week or more and how she read many books and articles and looked for information very carefully
This is what gave me a new lesson in my life “to present my best and to learn and study before every step I take“
What made me feel more proud is that now all travelers can hear the podcast ‘Abjoura’ because Lubna cooperated to be presented by Emirates Airlines,I hope in the future that it will also be presented on Saudi Airways because it deserves the first support from its country .
Podcast Abjoura won the New Media Award and Lubna Al Khamis received a great reputation and was hosted on several important channels .
Here is a meeting with her through Al Arabiya channel
What made me touch her love to educate herself and learn when she said that she traveled to Dubai to learn and developed her personality and she is now working in the office of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid .
When you imagine that a Saudi woman working in the office of all the employees in it are of UAE nationality, but Lubna managed to get her job with her skills only , It makes you feel pride.
So this effort what was she put it in Abjoura does not wasted
I liked when she asked us about our ambition so I did not know the answer and knew that there was a problem. Her question remained in my mind for three days and I was thinking about what is my ambition? and how I will draw the way to reach it?
Now, thanks to her, I know my ambition and how can I link it to my university major and not only that, I will develop myself by reading more books .
I benefited very much from this meeting and I thought that Lubna would offer all of her experience and knowledge to the girls to inspire and help them
I felt excited and wished to see myself for the next five years ? What will I do? How will I raise the name of Saudi Arabia as she did? What prizes will I receive?
Some may says that these are just dreams, but Lubna told us to believe in ourselves and that the more you learn, the better you will be .
