Ruqya Khan a freelance writer shares her “mantra” to look beyond and emerge successful as she takes us through her life journey during the Iraq invasion of Kuwait in 2010 and later.

Meet Ruqya Khan, a wordsmith who is also a Master Practitioner of NLP, Hypnosis and Time Line Therapy. She started her career as a freelance writer more than 15 years ago. While she is a regular contributor to Gulf News publications and supplements, she has been the editor of two magazines in Dubai, Emirates Parent Plus and Young & Trendy. She has done PR work for Dubai Shopping Festival, Dubai Summer Surprises and Global Village. Moreover, she has written scripts for TV shows and even managed content for the marketing and communications department at Knowledge and Human Development Authority in Dubai. She is driven by the awareness that though her life is simple and her achievements still growing, each day provides her with an opportunity to be an example to her children and the many who see her as she is. ‘When the why is strong, the how will follow!’…that is her message to the world…and that is exactly why she chooses to look beyond!
