I have a BA in English Language Education from Jeddah Teachers’ College, Saudi Arabia (2005), and an MA in English Linguistics from King Abdulaziz University, Saudi Arabia (2014). I am currently a PhD researcher in Translation Studies (Qur’an translation) (2019 – now). 

I taught English as a foreign language (EFL) in Ibn-khaldoun Secondary School in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for ten years (2006 – 2016). I then went to the Islamic University of Madinah, Saudi Arabia as a lecturer to teach EFL and English for specific purposes (2016 – now).
