Balqees al Hassani
President of Knowledge Oman
I’m privileged and honoured to share a few insights on this glorious occasion of the 11th anniversary of Omani Women’s Day. Today, Omani women have a notable presence in many spheres of life and they are appointed to many of the highest offices. Omani women have been given equal opportunities to prove themselves in the public and private sectors.
Omani women have indeed proven their position in many different walks of life. They have shown collective power to make positive changes and have collaborated to achieve big strides in their personal and professional capacities. They have used their voice to advocate for other women too. That makes Omani women special.
We at Knowledge Oman have given equal opportunities to all women to demonstrate their potential. We continue to support, develop and acknowledge women’s strengths and potential. Every woman plays an important role in developing the projects and programmes we offer to the community. Omani women are focused, determined and have the power to empower.
Turn you weakness into strength. Learn from your mistakes as they will help you shape the new you; turn your wounds and disappointments into wisdom. It is your responsibility to move forward in life. Have a clear vision of your life and what is the next right move for you. Avoid comparing yourself with others; you are a unique individual in all regards. Learn more about your true self in order to reach your highest and truest potential. Let your dream belong to you; never allow yourself to live for someone else’s dream. Happy Omani Women’s Day.
