Reem is currently an Advertising and Creative Design student at The University of Business and Technology. She believes that success comes from facing challenges, and learning to overcome them. She plans to improve on her skills; until she becomes the racer she aspires to be, and to represent Saudi in podiums worldwide.

She recently participated in the Saudi Timebreak Championship in Riyadh and managed to win 1st place during the second and third rounds.
