Nicola Sutcliff is a linguist, educator and writer currently residing in Paris. She graduated in Modern Languages and European Studies at the University of Bath and later achieved a Diploma in Freelance and Feature Writing from the London School of Journalism. Her professional interest in languages and transformative education has propelled her to live in eight different countries, including four years in Saudi Arabia. Living and working in the Kingdom allowed Nicola to build trust and relationships in an extremely private society, and consequently permitted her behind many high walls and closed doors. Her articles have been published in Destination Riyadh, the capital's principal English-language magazine, and her work has been supported by princesses, renowned activists and a UN representative.
