THE ED­I­TOR’S LET­TER

Emirates Woman - - News -

Emi­rates Woman cel­e­brates 35 years on the shelves this month – such a mile­stone for us, and a tes­ta­ment to our read­ers. The vi­sion for EW has al­ways re­mained the same, to ex­pose our lo­cal hero­ines, tastemak­ers and pro­tag­o­nists and put them on a podium for the world to see. This is­sue, we cel­e­brate our birth­day by pay­ing homage to our past (page 54) and look for­ward to our fu­ture with cover ‘star’ HRH Princess Haya bint al Hus­sein. Wife, mother, phi­lan­thropist, ac­claimed eques­trian, ve­ra­cious vi­sion­ary and the em­bod­i­ment of a true Emi­rates woman.

On Oc­to­ber 11 we will re­veal who you voted our woman of the year at our an­nual Emi­rates Woman, Woman of the Year awards, so keep an eye on emi­rateswoman.com (and all our so­cial me­dia chan­nels) to see who won the cov­eted crown.

I plan on cel­e­brat­ing our birth­day as I would my own, re­flect­ing on our past while look­ing ahead at our am­bi­tions for the fu­ture. There will be a party, cake and while we won't re­ceive gifts, we will pass them onto you...Flip through to page 171 to see all the good­ies we are giv­ing away.

Lastly, Oc­to­ber is Breast Can­cer Aware­ness month and we talk to lo­cal sur­vivors who are all grate­ful to have been given a sec­ond chance. If you can give your time or some dirhams to an amaz­ing cause, go to Pink Car­a­van at focp.ae/pc and do­nate away.

En­joy the is­sue,
