In the press

As well as writing my weekly On Your Side column in The National, I pop up in a number of other publications, so I have created this page as a way of people being able to have a read of other articles all in one place.

On Your Side columns in The National newspaper can all be found here:  http://www.thenational.ae/authors/keren-bobker
