CA­REER-DEFIN­ING MO­MENT

“Help­ing drive the bid­ding ef­forts of the Spe­cial Olympics World Games 2019. I re­mem­ber wait­ing at around

1.30am on a con­fer­ence call to get the out­come of the vote. When

it was unan­i­mously voted to Abu Dhabi, I was shak­ing with

dis­be­lief and ex­cite­ment.”

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD­EST AT WORK

“Work­ing along­side lead­ers, pol­icy mak­ers and com­mu­nity mem­bers to make the UAE and the world a more

in­clu­sive place for ev­ery­one.”

EX­PE­RI­ENCE THAT SHAPED YOU

“Be­com­ing a mother. I used to think

I was too self­ish in my per­sonal pur­suits to be­come a mother and ded­i­cate enough of my en­ergy and life to some­one else, but be­com­ing a mother is the most hum­bling and

trans­for­ma­tive role of my life.”

HEAD, HEART OR GUT?

“Isn’t it mag­i­cal when they’re all aligned? That was the case with my de­ci­sion to work with the Spe­cial

Olympics World Games.”

IF YOU WROTE A BOOK, IT WOULD BE ABOUT…

“Women in the Arab World. Their dreams, de­sires and per­sonal pur­suits to be their most hon­est selves in a world al­ways try­ing to tell

them to be some­one else.”
