Nawal Alhawsawi was not allowed to drive in her home country of Saudi Arabia, but she has earned her pilot's license since emigrating to the U.S. Alhawsawi, the oldest of 10 children, moved to Cleveland in 2005 and received her pilot's license in 2008. "I get the same feeling of joy and excitement every time I take off," said Alhawsawi, who may be the first Saudi woman to earn a pilot's license.
