Over the years, I have had some harsh words thrown at me from a whole range of peo­ple, some of whom I knew and oth­ers who I didn’t know at all. While such com­ments did bring me down, my ad­vice to you is to stop car­ing about what peo­ple think and start mak­ing de­ci­sions for your­self. Have con­fi­dence in your vi­sion, and don’t let any­one burst your am­bi­tious bub­ble.

On this Omani Women’s Day, let’s re­claim our thun­der and re­alise the power of our voice. Let’s all come to­gether to sup­port one an­other; fix­ing each other’s crowns with­out telling the world it was crooked. We have all been ques­tioned, doubted, told we aren’t good enough. So let’s work hand-in-hand to prove for once and for all that we can do what we set our minds on and shat­ter the glass ceil­ing to­gether.

Wish you all a very happy Omani Women’s Day. I truly believe that women make the most in­spir­ing man­agers be­cause they man­age dif­fer­ent things all the time all their lives. They are amaz­ing when per­form­ing both tasks, and in fact two shifts, as moth­ers and man­agers. They still never give up be­cause they are born to mul­ti­task.

An Omani woman should think that she is unique, believe in her­self, be strong, dream big, fol­low her plans and most im­por­tantly, be de­ter­mined. She should never doubt that she is valu­able, pow­er­ful and de­serv­ing of ev­ery op­por­tu­nity in this world to achieve her big dreams.
