IB Alum becomes the first Saudi woman to compete in the Formula Four Championship

IB Alumna Reema Juffali is the first Saudi woman to compete in the British Formula Four Championship.

Ever since Reema was a teenager, she developed a deep passion for automobiles. Determined to get behind the wheel, she passed her driving test a few months after moving to Boston. Having completed the Diploma Programme, she obtained a degree in International Affairs from Northeastern university, with minors in history, Middle East studies, and political science. She then decided to enrol in a three-day course at the Skip Barber Racing School to further her love of driving.

 

The course solidified her determination to pursue a career in racing. It wasn't until her encounter with prominent British racing driver Susie Wolff that she decided to go take a leap of faith, resulting in her making her debut at the British Formula Four Championship.
