Nicknamed the Mother of the Egyptian Revolution, she gained media attention for offering safety and protection to young people during the 2011 Egyptian revolution. She has since founded the Ahl Masr Foundation.
As a child, she inherited her love of charity from her mother. Then, as an adult, she spent more than a decade working in charity, doing everything from visiting orphanages to helping poor patients pay for hospital costs.
In 2016, she launched the Humanity Burn Free initiative to support burn victims in Egypt.
Her mother is Saudi and her father is Egyptian. Growing up in Saudi Arabia, she moved to Egypt and married, eventually having four children.
Both she and Jodie Evans gained attention as philanthropists.
