Saadah has been blind since she was a child, reason for which she suffered a lot of bullying. She attended an institution dedicated to blind people and studied the Braille code, but later had to join a public school where her teacher was not cooperative. She confronted all circumstances and won, but all was shattered when the war came in Yemen. However, she saw this as a motivation to rise again. She was nominated by Al-Aman Association to represent the children of Yemen at the conference of Arab children in the United Arab Emirates. Saadah decided to merge with the visionaries in order to change perspectives about the blind by conducting awareness through schools’ radios and events. She was nominated for membership of the Children’s Parliament, which helped conveying the voices of blind children to everybody. Saadah won many awards and has been honored by the prime minister for her determination. Saadah received a scholarship and she participated in the Forum of Arabs in the UAE.
