Sara Sadik - Discovering the Magic in the Mess
Show Notes

You know that saying when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Well, I have a dear friend Sara Sadik and when life gives her challenges she makes books! Her firstborn child arrived with challenging circumstances of her own and as a result, Sara wrote a best-selling book about motherhood, Finding the Magic in Mommyhood. When lockdown hit a couple of years ago she wrote a book for children, The Extraordinary Pause. When life turns left, Sara writes. She is on a journey to find what truly matters in life. She is a remarkable woman and that is because of what she has come through on that journey.

Sara Sadik is a best-selling author and communication strategist based in Dubai. She has worked for the United Nations Human Rights and UNICEF offices. She has also been employed by the UAE Prime Minister's Office leading major projects. Some of her latest work involves mentoring other writers and working on her next book.
