Al-Anzi has been working for 3 years in King Fahd Medical City in Riyadh, she told Al-Arabia .net that “the decision to drive the ambulance was not an easy decision for me as a woman, but the great motivator was to help society get rid of the Corona pandemic.

Al-Anzi indicated that her family has a great role in supporting her to continue this noble profession, and from here she raised a message that serving the nation and standing with our dear country in the Corona pandemic is not limited to men only, but women are able to give also.
