Social media phenomenon and author of Tales of a Saudi in Europe, Abdullah Al Jumah, returns to the Festival to talk about his travels in Latin American countries – travels that went beyond visiting cities and sites to learning about the beliefs and cultures of many different peoples. His new book, Khawaja Sharqi, will be published later in 2017.
Jumah’s thousands of social media followers accompanied him on his journeys, staying updated via YouTube and Snapchat. Included on the Arabian Business list of most powerful Arabs under 40, Jumah is shaping his fans’ views of the world in positive ways.
