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.
