Fardous has a Bachelor’s degree in medicine and surgery, as well as a Master’s degree in Epidemiology with high honors. Still, her work in medicine hasn’t stopped her from pursuing her passion for diving.
The Saudi doctor is now preparing for her next adventure; diving into the South Pole, making her the first Woman to dive in both Poles.
WE SAID THIS: Arabs really are on a roll!
