Soukaina “Soukie” Rachidi is a Moroccan-American third culture kid and the founder and author of Soukie Speaks, a blog which strives to re-imagine the narrative of young people in the MENA region and empower a new generation of Arab leaders and entrepreneurs. Although Soukaina was born in Morocco, she spent most of her formative years in the United Arab Emirates. She has also lived in Qatar, USA and Argentina. Soukaina’s diverse work experience includes university student recruitment, management, customer service and PR. When Soukaina isn’t obsessively writing or talking about youth empowerment, entrepreneurship and global development, she’s trying to find beautiful public places to hide and drink a good cup of coffee.
