The Girl Who Wanted To Be A Hero

BY SARAH HAJI ABDUL MUTALIF
@ VOL 12 ON NOV 26, 2017

Known as a tomboy when she was younger, Sarah Haji Abdul Mutalif believed that she was a boy until she could no longer deny her womanhood. When she realized there weren't many women known as heroes she decided that she would become one, a hero. Making her hero journey true she was accepted into a male-dominated course in the UK and returned home to a male-dominated oil and gas career and sent offshore. However, no matter how much she wanted to be the hero for women there is always something that wants to pull her back.
