Jehan S. Rajab's life was a mosaic of experiences: born in Brazil, childhood memories marked by colonial tensions in Jamaica, and a perilous journey through U-boat-patrolled waters during WWII. From witnessing the beginnings of global conflicts in the Atlantic to soaking in the Spanish influences in Gibraltar, Jehan's story reflects the challenges and adventures of growing up amidst colonial dynamics and global upheavals.
After completing her studies, Jehan was lured by the allure of Scotland's Iona, marking her first serious foray into writing. Her diverse childhood also ignited an interest in diverse cultures, leading her to immerse herself in the world of Romany England. However, a chance meeting with Tareq in an Eastbourne café reshaped her life. Jehan initially found Kuwaiti life difficult, but would soon find purpose in her new home.
