Her name, Salma, (derived from the male name Salim) comes from the Arabic word "salima", which means "peace, security, health". She was brought up in a wealthy pious family and at the age of twelve she was sent to study at a Catholic boarding school for girls in Louisiana. While Salma was there, the doctors diagnosed her with dyslexia.
